MacFarlane/McNeil Soul Jazz Collective Launch

Fri 30 Mar 2018 

8pm - 12.30am MacFarlane/McNeil Soul Jazz Collective Launch Night Special guest vocalist soul singer and songwriter Madaleine Pritchard The MacFarlane/McNeil Soul Jazz Collective has been brewing as a much-talked about idea between the co-leaders guitarist Malcolm MacFarlane and saxophonist Gordon McNeil for sometime. Following a partnership with Swing founder Emma Marsh, the idea will now become a monthly fixture at Swing. The plan is to play the great repertoire that exists from the main artists in the soul genre with an awesome live band. Putting together amazing line-ups from the unprecedented number of creative musicians currently working at a very high level of ability in Scotland. Despite the undoubted popularity of this music with audiences and musicians it is seldom performed live. The Collective's main mission is to deliver the huge pool of talent that exists to a soul-loving Glasgow live music audience every month. Special guest artists from Scotland, the UK and internationally will appear as featured vocalist monthly. As an artist Madaleine Pritchard has toured the world extensively and performed at famous venues and festivals worldwide. Madaleine has opened for The Fun Lovin Criminals, Tom Jones, Al Green, Dr.John, Mayer Hawthorne, Hue and Cry, Edwin Starr, and British soul diva Alice Russell Other higlights include live stage appearances with The Average White Band, Edwin Collins, The Skids, Paul Carrack of Mike And The Mechanics, Ricky Ross (Deacon Blue), Karine Polwart, Salsa Celtica, The Red Hot Chillie Pipers, Ian Anderson MBE (Jethro Tull) and Jon Fratelli.
