Glasgow Jazz Festival has unveiled the first wave of acts set to perform as part of this year’s three-day digital event.
Multi-award-winning Fergus McCreadie Trio will get the party started on Friday, June 18.
Laura Macdonald Quartet, corto.alto, Georgia Cecile and Mama Terra will also perform across the weekend.
Glasgow music and arts venue Saint Luke’s will play host to the special performances, which will be streamed to a digital audience.
The Blue Arrow will also host a programme of performances, which are still to be announced.
Surprise pop-up bonus tracks from a selection of performers, a Women in Jazz interview series and a London session will complete the online line-up.
Festival director Jill Rodger said: “This year’s Glasgow Jazz Festival will see us bring an array of exciting talent from the local jazz scene to global audiences with our programme of digital events.
“Going online allows us to continue supporting the rich and diverse jazz ecosystem in the city including musicians, local venues and an array of industry specialists, such as production, sound and lighting, that work tirelessly to bring audiences the best live music.
“The musicians can’t wait to share their art from venues across Glasgow with audiences worldwide and I hope people are able to enjoy the shows from home until we are able to safely gather and share music in person with one another again.”
Glasgow Jazz Festival will take place between Friday 18 and Sunday, June 20.
Online passes are on sale now.
