Nigel Kennedy has confirmed plans to tour the UK in April and May 2013.
Violinist Nigel Kennedy has announced a UK tour for April and May 2013. Kennedy's focus for the shows will be a Bach violin solo and Kennedy's own arrangements of the music of jazz pianist Fats Waller.
On his unusual programming for the concerts, Kennedy commented: "Playing Bach and Fats Waller on one show is a dream for me – two amazing keyboard players, both masters of harmony and melody."
The Waller section of the show will feature an acoustic guitarist, double bassist and percussionist joining Kennedy on stage. After completing a sold-out tour of the UK in 2012, Kennedy's 2013 dates will take in ten shows across the country.
The dates for Kennedy's tour are as follows:
24th - Edinburgh Usher Hall
25th - Newcastle City Hall
28th - Leeds Town Hall
29th - Liverpool Philharmonic
1st - Bournemouth Pavilion
2nd - Cardiff St David's Hall
3rd - Bristol Colston Hall
7th - Ipswich Regent Theatre
8th - Nottingham Royal Concert Hall
