The Scottish Swing Orchestra, under their mercurial director, Dave Batchelor, have lit up the Scottish jazz scene in recent years with a series of productions that tell ‘The Story of Swing”. The combination of interesting narrative, high quality music making, top soloists, and dancers has proved a huge success with audiences. Last year, Dave moved his focus to the “Kings of Swing” with Evan Christopher. This year, we move on and hit the jackpot with a show that features the music of the great female singers of the Swing Era – including Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, The Andrews Sisters, Peggy Lee – as interpreted by the simply brilliant young singer, Irini Arabatzi, and the doyens of swing harmony vocals, Duchess, making their Scottish debut.
