The Swingcats present their new show, “Sisters of Swing” – a tribute to The Andrews Sisters and the great female vocalists from the jazz and swing era, including Ella Fitzgerald, Peggy Lee and Nina Simone.
They deliver these timeless classics with their unique three part harmony arrangements and will be accompanied by the Karen MacIver trio.
The Swingcats have fast become one of the nation’s finest vocal groups and fronted some of the UK’s top big bands including The Glenn Miller Orchestra, The BBC Big Band and The RAF Squadronaires.
This is a Creative Peebles Festival event, supported by Creative Scotland.
