Rachel Sermanni is taking her Naked Ladies on tour. This Autumn, the Folk-Noir balladeer will be on the road again, with a new live album, recorded in the Yukon at the prestigious Dawson City Music festival. She will displaying a collection of her drawings – nudes and dreams – following their debut exhibition in Edinburgh in June 2014.

Rachel is 22 and has been singing her songs since leaving school at 17. Channelling spirits of all ages and archetypes, weaving images of childhood, womanhood, of instinct and inhibition simply with the breath from her lungs, a Hardy Martin guitar and a bandolim called Sue.

For this tour, Rachel will be joined by Jennifer Austin on the piano, Colin Macleod on the guitar (of course, he’ll sing a couple of his beautiful songs too). There will hopefully be some unexpected guests along the way also.

logo for brochure

Hebrides Ensemble meets Vegas jumpsuit this November for a rare performance of Dead Elvis. Michael Daugherty’s radical piece draws its inspiration from the legendary star’s cultural legacy and enduring appeal. Solo bassoonist Peter Whelen dons the white suit for a classical take on the King.

The evening begins with Suite op 157b by French-born composer Darius Milhaud whose time in America adds hints of 1920s Harlem jazz. Soprano Claron McFadden re-joins Hebrides Ensemble for three pieces, starting with Thomas Adès‘s Life Story, set to text by American author and playwright Tennessee Williams.

Claron continues with Stephen Montague’s Wild Nights, inspired by American poet Emily Dickinson, and finishes with Dream with Me fromPeter Pan, Leonard Bernstein’s musical adaptation of the classic J M Barrie tale.

Ryan Quigley, one of the UK’s most in-demand jazz trumpet players, rounds off the American theme with A Fiddler’s Tale Suite, Wynton Marsalis’s jazzy tribute to Stravinsky.

Join us as the Hebrides Ensemble drops in some jazzier notes to its classical repertoire for a lively celebration of America’s best.

Ryan Quigley: Solo Jazz Trumpet, Peter Whelen: Solo Bassoon, Claron McFadden: Soprano.

White Christmas – Broughty Ferry Amateur Operatic Society @ Gardyne Theatre
Nov 25 @ 19:30 – Nov 29 @ 22:00

White Xmas

Broughty Ferry Amateur Operatic Society are well known for the excellence of their productions and patrons are guaranteed a most entertaining evening of song and dance produced by live performers on stage, backed by a full orchestra in the pit, an increasingly rare sight these days.

The song “I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas” must be one of the very few songs dating as far back as 1940 with which most of today’s primary school children will be familiar.  Older generations will associate it most probably with the 1954 film White Christmas starring Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye and Rosemary Clooney (yes, George’s aunt!), although it also appeared in the 1942 film Holiday Inn.

But the film is no one-song wonder.  The genius of Irving Berlin also produced “Happy Holiday”, “How Deep Is The Ocean”, “I’ve Got My Love To Keep Me Warm”, “Blue Skies” and many others, ensuring that audiences will come out not knowing which of the many tunes to hum on their way home, something that can’t be said of many more modern musicals.
