Glasgow, Celtic Connections (Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, New Auditorium Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow, G2 3NY)
01 February 2019 19:30
Breaking new collaborative ground across genre boundaries, tonight’s world première features Scottish rising stars Snuffbox – comprising fiddler Charlie Stewart (2017’s Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year), cellist Rufus Huggan, and guitarist/singer Luc McNally – with MOBO-winning, Mercury-nominated, British/Bengali jazz pianist Zoe Rahman, flanked by bassist Alec Dankworth and drummer Gene Calderazzo. Potential connections between the two trios include Stewart’s studies in jazz alongside folk at the RCS; Rahman’s own part-Irish heritage – explored on her 2012 Kindred Spirits album – and her longstanding interest in the great Bengali writer/composer Rabindranath Tagore, who wrote songs inspired by Robert Burns.

Duo with pianist Nikki Yeoh.

"Nikki Yeoh and Zoe Rahman are ground-breaking contemporary composers, both of whom have released outstanding solo piano albums. So what better way to celebrate women in music as part of Venus Unwrapped at Kings Place than to share their talents across two Steinway concert grand pianos? This evening’s concert will feature specially arranged music from Nikki Yeoh’s Solo Gemini and Zoe Rahman’s Dreamland album."
