Seonaid Aitken Big Band plus special guests present: A Night With Ella

We are opening the 2022 Festival in style, celebrating the First Lady of Song, Ella Fitzgerald

Arguably one of the finest female jazz vocalists of all time, her extraordinary diction, timing, sense of swing and all-round joie de vie made her one of the finest interpreters of the great American song book. 

Violinist, vocalist and broadcaster Seonaid Aitken is the ideal choice to celebrate Ella and the songs she made famous, including ‘A Tisket A Tasket’, ‘Lady be Good’ ‘How High The Moon’, ‘Ev’ry Time We Say Goodbye’, ‘Summertime’, and ‘The Very Thought of You’. Fronting a superstar big band with special guests including Glaswegian rising star singer kitti, saxophonist Konrad Wiszniewski and Italian trumpeter Daniele Raimondi, this will be an evening of inspiring music, celebrating a jazz legend. 


This concert will be streamed as part of the EJBF 22 Online Festival Pass - find out more.
