CFS Music presents
The Wonderful Jazz Duo of
SOPHIE BANCROFT and TOM LYNE
Old Kilbarchan Library on Friday 22nd February at 7.30pm
SophieBancroft, vocalist and songwriter, and her long time partner, the outstanding jazz double bass player TomLyne, are both very well known, each in their own right, in the Scottish jazz scene and beyond.
Sophie and Tom will fill the evening with their dynamic, intimate and very entertaining interpretations of classic jazz songs, both old and new, interspersed with original material of Sophie’s, some of which are featured on their newly released album ‘You Turned the Tables on Me’ which is currently receiving critical acclaim.
The original pieces reflect some of the musical legends Sophie admits have shaped her work such as BillieHolliday and DorisDay. Her Scottish roots are not forgotten either as is very apparent in their Blues version of RobertBurns’ song ‘Can Ye Sew Cushions’. Her lyrics are mainly drawn from her own life experiences but not surprisingly seem to strike a chord with audiences of all ages.
No matter where they take their influences from, when performing together they become as one, creating a truly unique blend of voice and musicianship which is a joy to experience.
‘Bancroft and Lyne kept their audience entertained throughout the set. The hour flew by, and thanks to the intimate setting, the anecdotes and the warmth of the two performers, it was like an evening with old friends.”
