Colin Murray writes: The mere thought of Nigel Kennedy hurtling down a mountainside in tight lycra is enough to make a man turn his back on sport, so thank goodness Vanessa-Mae hasn’t started a trend. Under the surname Vanakorn, she’ll be cutting up snow in the Alpine skiing (21 Feb) for Thailand, native land of her father. Well, Colin, it's a matter of opinion, isn't it ? Some of us would quite like to see that.............you do realize that he'd be playing his violin at the same time, don't you ?
Violin virtuoso Nigel Kennedy will headline this year’s Scarborough Jazz Festival when he performs alongside guitarist John Etheridge and their band. The exciting pairing of the world’s leading and best-selling violinist of all time alongside one of jazz’s most accomplished guitarists is set to make this year’s festival one of the country’s most talked about Jazz Festivals. The duo are just one of fifteen acts that have been announced to play the three day festival at Scarborough Spa between 26-28 September which as always features a great blend of experienced and upcoming talent. Actual date to be published soon.
Another concert date added for May, 2014; check CONCERTS.
Bethlehem Unwrapped went behind the romanticised Christmas card image of the ancient city of Bethlehem to show what life is like for the city’s people today. Nigel Kennedy’s quintet performed the violinist’s own composition ‘The Bridge’, with Tom Eisner (violin), Yaron Stavi (bass), Doug Boyle (guitar) plus Palestinian singer Reem Kelani, actor Adjoa Andoh, singers from the Tallis Scholars and guest speaker Yasmin Alibhai-Brown. Also in the courtyard at St James’s Church was the WALL installation - a life size replica of the 8-metre-high Separation Wall that surrounds Bethlehem. Visitors were welcome to write a thought, reflection or prayer on the Wall itself. Go to MEDIA CLIPS for pictures of the concert.
