Rootsbase: Seonaid Aitken - a Night with Ella

A new live music club - dedicated to presenting the very best in folk, trad and roots-based!

Scottish Jazz Award-winning vocalist (2017 & 2018), swing violinist, arranger, and BBC Jazz Nights broadcaster, Seonaid Aitken presents her highly acclaimed tribute to the ‘First Lady of Song’. Having performed a Big Band production across Scotland to audiences of up to 1000 to mark the centenary of Ella Fitzgerald’s birth, Seonaid will create a more intimate, stripped-back show to celebrate the ‘Queen of Jazz’ accompanied by award-winning pianist Fergus McCreadie and saxophonist.

Seonaid also releases her debut solo jazz album in 2019 - ‘What Is This Thing Called Love?’ - with the Scottish Session Orchestra which features Seonaid’s orchestrations and includes a little nod to Ella.
