LETTUCE & JAMIE CULLUM - Arena Santa Giuliana - 8 July 2017


The Lettuce knew in Boston in 1992 when they were attending  the Berklee's courses. They started to play together, but at the end of the lesson they separated to folow their own way.
After two years they found themselves in Boston and decided to make a stable band: the Lettuce. They will perform, on the main stage of Umbria Jazz,  with Jamie Cullum, the UK's most popular jazzaman ever.
He started with jazz music with the Twentysomething record and then, thanks to his eclectic talent, ranged between soul, hip hop, rock and pop. So many prizes received including a Grammy and two Golden Globes.
