Glaswegian singer/songwriter kitti is a name on the rise. Her soulful, smoky vocals and unique lyrics demand attention and make it easy to see why fans are making comparisons to the likes of Amy Winehouse and Alicia Keys. For this special set, kitti will celebrate American jazz singer Blossom Dearie with a collection of carefully selected songs from writers that Blossom loved to work with such as Bob Dorough & Dave Frishberg.
Recently awarded Critics Choice Award at the Scottish Jazz Awards, Rachel Lightbody is another rising star on the Scottish scene. Backed by her band of Thomas Gibbs (piano), David Bowden (bass) and Alyn Cosker (drums) expect contemporary arrangements and improvisations found in the musical influences of Joni Mitchell, Sarah Vaughan and Brian Wilson to name a few.
