Let’s set the scene. It’s a warm Scottish summer evening. You’re relaxing outdoors in the spectacular, atmospheric grounds of Glamis Castle. Maybe you’re having a much-needed evening out with your partner, meeting with family or friends, or just craving something a bit different, something to remember. Then, when the live music begins, you’re transported to another place altogether, another era…
Here’s 5 reasons you will not want to miss the heady and unexpected sounds of Jazz on the Lawn coming to Glamis Castle this August.
- Take a trip to the home of jazz… via Glamis
Remember when we used to be able to travel or easily experience live music. Jazz on the Lawn can offer both. Sit back on the lawn in front the castle with some blankets and cushions. Close your eyes, feel the rhythms, vibrations and improvisations, and allow yourself to be transported on a musical journey.
- Be close to nature
There’s something thrilling about an open-air live music event. Place the outdoor event in our beautiful grounds and have an even more memorable experience. It’s so easy to feel close to nature at Glamis. Take a walk through the trees, smell the flowers, observe the wildlife – all while the vibrant sounds of jazz follow you around.
- Celebrate the very best of Scotland’s musical talent
Witness the Rose Room, an award-winning jazz quartet take to the Glamis stage to perform an array of 1930s ‘Hot Club’ standards, Gypsy Jazz favourites and some originals thrown into the mix. Fronted by Scottish Jazz Awards ‘Best Vocalist’ 2017 & 2018 and presenter of BBC Radio Scotland’s Jazz Nights, Seonaid Aitken, the quartet are the cream of Scottish musical talent.
- It makes a unique (and romantic) date night
Date night might seem like a distant memory since we’ve all had to spend so much time at home over the past 18 months. There’s lots of ways Jazz on the Lawn can offer a peaceful, picturesque and romantic setting for a date.
- It’s an escape from everyday life
In the words of legendary US jazz drummer Art Blakey: “Jazz washed away the dust of everyday life.” Take the opportunity to clear your mind of all your daily pressures with beautiful live music, fresh air and great company. Sounds pretty amazing, doesn’t it?
Jazz on the Lawn is taking place at Glamis Castle from 4.00pm-6.00pm on the 7th and 14th August.
