panache recreating the excitement of Rive Gauche Paris.
Based in Glasgow, the quartet features award-winning violinist and “sophisticated songstress” Seonaid Aitken (who also plays with the Orchestra of Scottish Opera, arranges/orchestrates for theatre, film and television including the BBC/Richard urtis/Roald Dahl film ‘Esio Trot’, and is now a guest presenter on bBC Radio Scotland’s ‘The Jazz House’), Scotland’s No.1 guitar maker Jimmy Moon on double bass, and Danny Kyle
