Singer, guitarist and one of the all time greats of smooth jazz and soul, George Benson, plays Edinburgh Jazz & Blues Festival for the first time.
In a career spanning 5 decades and over 30 albums, Benson established himself as a jazz guitarist of the highest order, and then built a mainstream music career that has won him 10 Grammy awards. With his soulful and passionate voice, he’s built a huge catalogue of classic hits, including Give Me The Night, Breezin, Turn Your Love Around, In Your Eyes, and Never Give Up on a Good Thing. Recently, he’s hit the headlines again with his celebrated “unforgettable” tribute to Nat King Cole. Here’s a rare chance to hear a master of modern music, in the warm surrounds of Festival Theatre.
