Concert Details

Mary May, Alan King, Ray Leonard and Kevin Dorrian.

Mary May started singing on the club scene before concentrating on singing jazz a few years ago, and has since sung with some of the greatest jazz musicians in Scotland.  She has sung at many of the top jazz venues in Scotland, including the Blue Lamp Jazz Club and The Lemon Tree in Aberdeen,  Henry’s Cellar Bar in Edinburgh, as well as taking part in Glasgow Jazz Festival and Callander Jazz Festival with her own Quartet. She has been reviewed as one of Scotland’s best Jazz Singers, and as a natural improviser.  Check her website for Jazz artwork.

Her sound has been described as a ‘cross between Nancy Wilson and Eartha Kitt’ and her interpretations and phrasing has won praise from such great jazz luminaries as Nancy Kelly, Jimmy Scott, Cleve Douglass, Mark Murphy and Sheila Jordan.
