Scottish Jazz Expo

We celebrate Scottish musics,  in the tenth year of EXPO funding, by presenting a host of creative projects. World premieres include Seonaid Aitken singing of love with a 24 piece string orchestra; American clarinet player Evan Christopher joins The Scottish Swing Orchestra to salute the Kings of Swing; Haftor Medboe duets with Swedish pianist Jacob Karlzon and Andrew Robb is joined by Norwegian saxophonist Petter Wettre

There is an amazing new wave of Scottish jazz musicians on the scene and fittingly in this, the Year of Young People, we feature the 20 year old bassist Mark Hendry who showcases his Octet and has been commissioned by the Festival to write music for a Large Ensemble – 23 musicians!  We also feature another 20 year old, the stellar pianist Fergus McCreadie with his Trio plus the 18 year old singer Luca Manning who leads a brand new band featuring Greek singer Irini Arabatzi.
