GRAPPELLI NIGHT with the Seonaid Aitken Quintet

ward-winning violinist Seonaid Aitken pays tribute to her French Jazz violin
hero Stéphane Grappelli to mark 25 years since his passing - and 30 years
since his last performance at the Glasgow Jazz Festival. Specialising in Gypsy
Jazz, Seonaid
is a regular tutor at the Grappelli-Django Camp in The
Netherlands and
performs extensively with her Scottish Jazz Award-winning
band Rose Room. She has also been a guest with the Tim Kliphuis Sextet,
Tokyo Django Collective, Swing 2023 and top jazz fingerstyle virtuoso - and
former Grappelli guitarist - Martin Taylor MBE.
Seonaid and her piano
quintet will celebrate Grappelli’s 60+ year career with swingin’ tunes from his
solo repertoire such as ‘Pent Up House’, ‘Ol’ Man River’ and ‘Sweet Georgia
Brown’ and will be sure to include a few numbers from his Quintette du Hot
Club de France days and legendary duets with Classical violin virtuoso Yehudi
