Georgina Jackson to star at concert

The next jazz concert at Hospitalfield in Arbroath will take place on Saturday, June 8, and will feature one of the UK’s rising stars, Georgina Jackson.

Having fallen in love with big band music at an early age she started her career as a trumpet player before extending her talents to include vocals. She has led her own big band and is the resident singer with The Ronnie Scott Big Band.

She has also appeared with the BBC Big Band and her debut album, released last year, reached number eight in the jazz charts. She will be accompanied by Brian Kellock, piano, the BBC Big Band drummer, Tom Gordon, and Kenny Ellis on bass. Tickets (£12) can be reserved on 01382 774648.
