Jazz star offers free workshops

Local young musicians are to be give the rare opportunity to workshop with one of the most exciting, in-demand live jazz performers in the country – for free.

Widely regarded as the emerging ‘voice’ of mainstream Jazz in the UK, double MOBO Award winning saxophonist YolanDa Brown is playing Aberdeen’s Lemon Tree on Tuesday, March 27, with a full live band and backing vocalists.

And she plans to hold a workshop in the city centre venue from 2pm to 3pm on the day of her performance to guide young musicians aged eight upwards (grades 1-5) on playing with emotion and feeling.

The session is free for anyone who has bought a ticket to the show.
