Seonaid Aitken
 
Assembly Hall
Mound Place, Edinburgh
 
Sunday 22nd July, 8.00pm

Scotland’s most popular jazz singer debuts a new programme, complementing her singing – and swinging violin playing – with a String Orchestra featuring the cream of Scottish professional classical orchestras. Aitken’s own cinematic arrangements for the Orchestra, of jazz standards, Scottish songs, popular classics and original compositions are all inspired by the most complex/multi-faceted of emotions; love. For Aitken, arranging is just another ‘string to her bow’, but she was renowned for it, well before she found fame as a jazz singer. She has been commissioned by such as the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Scottish Chamber Orchestra, National Theatre of Scotland, Blue Rose Code, Red Hot Chilli Pipers and loads more. Tonight, she’ll have 25 strings, harp, guitar, providing the lush backdrop for her marvelous voice as she takes on a “Love Song” journey through tunes by Cole Porter, Errol Garner, Harold Arlen, Hoagy Carmichael, Robert Burns, and Fleetwood Mac!
