Programme: To be announced during the concert.


Paul Towndrow is an internationally renowned Glaswegian saxophonist & composer specialising in syncretic musical forms including the fusion of jazz with traditional celtic music, Indian music, and free improvisation.

In 2023 Paul released a new album, ‘‘Outwith The Circle’ on Keywork Records which features the trio alongside special guests including vocalist Eddi Reader, piper Ross Ainslie, and guitarist Davie Dunsmuir.

Today we have his energetic trio format with Alyn Cosker (Drums) and Pete Johnstone (Organ). This Scottish supergroup has performed at both sides of the Atlantic, including appearances in New York, London and beyond.
