Fionna Duncan is the matriarch of Scotland’s jazz singers – most of whom graduated from her vocal workshops at the Glasgow Jazz Festival, including all of The Bevvy Sisters! The Bevvy Sisters are one of Scotland’s leading close-part harmony groups – equally comfortable in the worlds of Jazz, Americana and Blues.
In her 80th year, this special concert honours Fionna’s massive contribution to Scottish Jazz singing. Sets by The Bevvy Sisters and Fionna (with her favourite pianist Brian Kellock) will end with an unmissable group finale featuring a specially created pop-up choir – which YOU COULD BE PART OF! Witness a true master of her craft at work in a programme of stunning harmonies and raw emotion.
‘The Bevvy Sisters are three students from various years who took part in my Jazz course – all in one band! They’ve made me doubly proud by organising this concert and giving me the honour to headline in my own City (Glasgow) in my 80th year. All of us, still learning, still singing, still swinging!’ Fionna Duncan 2019
Brian Kellock is one of the UK’s finest and most in-demand jazz pianists, acclaimed for a distinctive, swinging, playing style which has classic jazz piano influences at its heart but can never be second-guessed.
