Concert Details

Jazz singer and songwriter from Orkney, Marianne grew up in a musical family, surrounded by Orkney’s rich culture of music and art.

Marianne sings with a variety of colours and tone in her voice and uses a breathy twist that is undoubtedly hers. Finding influence in singers such as Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald and Amy Winehouse among others, their expressive jazz vocals and meaningful delivery of tone and phrasing is what she tries to take from these idols and recreate in her own singing. Her songwriting is noted for its quirky charm and inviting feel.

Following her success at this year’s Celtic Connections, as a winner of a prestigious Danny Kyle award,  Marianne plans to release an album of original songs later this year.

Marianne will be performing famous jazz standards, modern songs rearranged and original material.
