“… Ebullient cellist with wide ranging vocals…” (The stage)
“… Very funny polished act and a wonderful elastic face…” (London Live Radio’)
“…Stomach achingly funny!…” Fleece Jazz News – London
“…The highlight of the evening, though, was Kate Shortt, possibly the only comedian on the planet who can make even a cello giggle. Though a talented impressionist herself, Shortt was able to extract a mind-boggling array of noises and impersonations from her cello, mimicking everything from bagpipes to a Brummie accent. Parodying Classic FM and ‘weird modern music’ along the way, Shortt’s short-and-sweet set was a delightfully funny end to a rich and varied show”… (Review from ‘Cusp Magazine’ at Kings Place London)
“…She twisted the dials of our genre sensitive minds, hopping from station to station like a pre digital radio sliding in and out of wave bands. Linear time doesn’t exist with Shortt, she occupies a world where all becomes subject matter or music…” (Alban Low – theartofjazzblogspot)
