Fraser Urquhart with Georgia Cécile
February 18th, 2023
We're looking forward to welcoming two award winning musicians both now playing at the top level nationally and internationally.
One of the most in-demand young jazz musicians on the scene, pianist Fraser Urquhart is accompanied by Georgia Cécile. An emerging star of the UK jazz scene, Georgia has a voice that led her to be WINNER, "UK Jazz Act Of The Year" and "vocalist of the year" at the 2022 Jazz FM awards.
Son of jazz guitarist Dougie Urquhart, Fraser seeks out mentors from near and far, such as his hero Brian Kellock and major NYC pianist Michael Kanan, serving his unending drive to develop his craft. From tender ballads through fiery tempos, Fraser's natural swing and classy tone highlight his impeccable talent.
Cécile, who can do sassy as well as soulful, is deeply influenced by classic jazz: “I'm drawn to the swing era, particularly early Frank Sinatra when he sang with Tommy Dorsey and the big, soulful voices of people like Nancy Wilson and Abbey Lincoln, with a real, emotive way of telling the stories behind the lyrics.”
