15th May 2013
I am very excited to announce that I have been awarded funding to be part of the ‘Made In Scotland’ showcase during the 2013 Edinburgh Fringe Festival for my collaborative performances with stunning Los Angeles jazz pianist, Louis Durra (http://www.louisdurra.com/). We will be performing my songs along with the refreshing repertoire of the Louis Durra Trio, all with the magic of his stunning arrangements. Tickets will soon be on sale from the fringe box office.
I am just getting over the remnants of jet lag after a great trip to Alberta, Canada to visit the in-laws and do a fantastic gig with Tom Lyne in High River, just south of Calgary. It felt great to sing ‘Calgary Bay’ in the neighbourhood of its big city cousin, and we hope to do more gigs out there after the great reception we received.
Lots coming up in the next few months, including another vocal jazz workshop in Hastings with the wonderful Liane Carroll and Sara Colman, gigs at the Leith Jazz Festival alongside the amazing Fionna Duncan, and at the Edinburgh Jazz Festival, and a Pathhead Music Collective summer school for children.
There are 2 places left on the Hastings Vocal Jazz Workshop on the 24 – 26th May, and there are a few places still available on the incredible Mediterranean Jazz Summer School at the end of August with myself and Liane Carroll, alongside the instrumental tutors Simon Purcell and Julian Siegel. We also have some places available on our Cromarty Vocal Jazz Workshop on the stunning Black Isle, near Inverness in Scotland, at the beginning of November this year. All details on these are listed below.
Wee reminder that you can check out the Sophie Bancroft and Tom Lyne Living Room Sessions on Youtube:
