Georgia Cecile Quartet // Anoushka Nanguy Quartet
Check out the latest Festival programme here!
Georgia Cecile is the major new singing voice on the Scottish jazz scene. She has the ability to touch audiences in a direct and personal way, singing ballads with a disarming charm and intimacy; and then flicking a soulful switch to bring energy and power to contemporary songs. She made a powerful mark at her packed Festival show this year, and here she is opening our Scottish Jazz Weekend as one of the shining stars of 2019. Opening up the concert is a new name for most Edinburgh audiences, but one to hear as soon as you can. Anoushka Nanguy is a trombonist and singer, who at 19 has already played with the SNJO on their recent Duke Ellington programme, and sings with a conviction and authority that belies her age
