Popular piano/vocalist Wendy Kirkland and guitarist Pat Sprakes make their 1st visit to the Langtoun and will be joined by 2 fine Scottish musicians, Jay Kilbride and Kevin Dorrian, to open our festival in fine style.
They will present a varied programme of originals and standards taken from Wendy's 3 albums Piano Divas, The Music's on me and Latin Lowdown Live
Pianist and singer Wendy Kirkland has been a mainstay of the UK Jazz scene since the late noughties, but it was her first album, Piano Divas, released in 2017 that began her ascent to wider recognition as a Singing Pianist, as dubbed by Jazz Journal. The ability to sing at the same time as comping and craft solos on the piano or unison piano/voice scat lines is her forte, with influences such as Diana Krall, Eliane Elias and Dena DeRose. Further accolades were given for her 2019 release The Musics On Me, dubbed a huge leap forward by Jazz Views. Both albums prompted ACE funded tours all over the UK and constant radio airplay ever since.
