The Great American Songbook refers to a body of classic American standards written from the 1920s to the 1950s, mainly for Broadway musicals, and later musical films. Composers like Cole Porter, George & Ira Gershwin and Irving Berlin wrote songs made famous by singers such as Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Ella Fitzgerald and many more. In the last 20 years, contemporary singers have recorded their own versions of Great American Songbook music.

Sue presents a selection of these classic songs along with some more modern American artists. In case you were wondering, the show's title is in honour of our late colleague and friend, Big Al, who first presented the show.

Big Al's Great American Songbook is supported by our partner, Waitrose, Sherborne.
