Breaking new collaborative ground across genre boundaries, tonight’s world première features Scottish rising stars Snuffbox – comprising fiddler Charlie Stewart (2017’s Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year), cellist Rufus Huggan, and guitarist/singer Luc McNally – with MOBO-winning, Mercury-nominated, British/Bengali jazz pianist Zoe Rahman, flanked by bassist Alec Dankworth and drummer Gene Calderazzo. Potential connections between the two trios include Stewart’s studies in jazz alongside folk at the RCS; Rahman’s own part-Irish heritage – explored on her 2012 Kindred Spirits album – and her longstanding interest in the great Bengali writer/composer Rabindranath Tagore, who wrote songs inspired by Robert Burns. Supported through the Scottish Government’s Edinburgh Festivals Expo Fund.
