  • Show description
  • Emerging from the statuesque shadow of his legendary tragi-comic cabaret creation, Miss Hope Springs, the award-winning composer and lyricist, performs simply as himself.

    Ty grew up between Hollywood and Pinewood when his father, Lionel Jeffries, was making movies like Camelot and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Educated at the prestigious Purcell School of Music in the 1970s, Ty was taught his first jazz piano chords by Sir John Mills and was further encouraged by screen composer Elmer Bernstein. In the 80s, he was mentored by Vangelis and was signed to Elton John’s Rocket Music. He also worked with Chaka Kahn and was a keyboard player for Billy Mackenzie’s The Associates. Years later, Jeffries’ alter-ego opened the newly constructed Crazy Coqs, and he remains their longest-standing resident artist. More recently, his songs have been covered by Joe Stilgoe, Claire Martin and New York cabaret legend Sidney Myer.

    Ty will be performing an array of his acclaimed, witty and moving original songs and a couple of his evocative solo piano pieces.
