St Boswells Live! presents A Christmas Jazz Show
starring The Alex Yellowlees Band
If you like jazz, then you’ll love this evening – a perfect night to get you in the swing, and feeling all seasonal. Headlining this evening and back for a very welcome return visit to St Boswells Live! are THE ALEX YELLOWLEES QUARTET.
One of the finest exponents of jazz in Scotland is Alex Yellowlees, Scotland’s premier jazz violinist, who has dazzled and entertained audiences throughout Europe with his original realisation of the ‘Hot Club’ style. Ever the pioneer, Alex has sculpted his own musical voice over a lifetime of performance and recordings, drawing from his extensive experience of celtic, blues and jazz genres.
On Saturday 6th December, Alex will be joined by the rest of his quartet: virtuoso guitarist Mike Nisbet, composer and contemporary guitarist Ged Brockie, and multi-credited bass player Kenny Ellis. We have no doubt you will be stunned by their musicianship and sheer good-times performance of a vast range of jazz and popular standards and original compositions.
Supporting the quartet are the EARLSTON HIGH SCHOOL JAZZ BAND. Led by ace multi-instrumentalist Mike Haywood, the band comprise a wide range of talented musicians from throughout our local High School, including a couple of teachers! They love playing music and we are sure you’ll give them your wholehearted support.
Doors open at 7.30pm, with the music starting at 8pm. Bring your own drinks; we’ll lay on a few seasonal nibbles and a lovely atmosphere. If you play a bit of jazz and would like to go on stage, then please contact email@example.com and just ask.
