Mark Hendry Large Ensemble
Hendry is a phenomenal new talent on the Scottish Jazz scene. The bass player writes brilliantly; creating absorbing, impactful, and exciting new music that appeals to wide-ranging audiences. His Octet is packed with many of the best young players in the new wave of Scottish Jazz.
We don’t think there’s ever been such a thrilling young band to match this one - in our history. With that level of enthusiasm around, the Festival have commissioned Mark to go for it – to create an even bigger band that allows him to challenge his extraordinary compositional and arranging talents. He is planning for 23 musicians on stage, and the prospect of one of the landmark concerts in Scottish Jazz.
