This special concert will showcase a set of exquisitely crafted original songs from Georgia Cécile's much-anticipated forthcoming debut album ‘Only The Lover Sings’. Fusing classic jazz and soul influences reminiscent of Duke Ellington and Nancy Wilson with a contemporary cinematic edge in the vein of Gregory Porter and Melody Gardot, Cécile's songs, co-written and artfully arranged by pianist Euan Stevenson, are vivid sensorial landscapes - poetic reflections on themes of love, loss, nurture and spiritual growth.
Cécile will be joined by her trio with Stevenson at the helm on piano, Andrew Robb on bass and Max Popp on drums alongside a top Scottish string quartet led by violinist Seonaid Aitken.
