SINGER Jess Glynne is to play York Racecourse at a Music Showcase Evening on Friday, July 28.

The only evening meeting of the season will see six races followed by a live concert from the artist who first shot into the public consciousness as the vocalist on Clean Bandit’s Grammy Award winning and number one hit ‘Rather Be’.

Jess has since become one of the biggest UK breakthrough acts of recent years. Her number-one charting debut album, ‘I Cry When I Laugh‘, has turned double platinum in the UK, making it the highest selling debut album of the past year. Jess is also one of only two British female solo artists to have five consecutive UK number one singles. 2016 was a further massive year for Jess, with a sold-out UK arena tour under her belt plus she was nominated for British Breakthrough Act, British Female Solo Artist and British Single for ‘Hold My Hand’ at this year’s prestigious Brit Awards.

Jess said: "It’s going to be great fun playing York Racecourse. I love outdoor shows and can’t wait to share the summer evening with my fans.

One of the best known all girl bands of all time, All Saints, will be on that same stage a little under twenty four hours later as they play York Racecourse on Music Showcase Saturday, July 29.

James Brennan, Head of Marketing and Sponsorship said:

‘Everyone at the course is really excited that Jess Glynne and All Saints will be performing here. Add in the spectacle of the racing itself and we hope these will prove summer days to savour.’
