Music at Aboyne aims to bring regular live music performances to Aboyne and the wider Deeside area. So far, it has brought a number of young (and not so young) musicians to play live in Aboyne Community Theatre, the Victory Hall, Aboyne and in Finzean. They come in twos and threes and fours – playing a variety of music from all periods. Some play accessible classical music, some jazz, some Scottish traditional. We have even had a tribute band – Simon and Garfunkel by Bookends, the tremendous Abbamania, Jersey Notes and Irish favourites, Legends of American Country – which provided much delight and look forward to welcoming more.
JKL DUO MOTHERS DAY CONCERT
Sunday 10th March, 2.30pm
Deeside Community Centre Theatre, Aboyne
Our young musicians this year will be the JKL Duo, comprising Kerry Lynch (Flute) and Jacopo Lazzaretti (Guitar) who met almost 6 years ago when Jacopo came to Glasgow from Italy to study at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. They have been together ever since and are very active within Scotland’s music scene, splitting their time between performing, recording and teaching from their studio in Glasgow.
In Aboyne, they will present a multi-faced programme starting with some highlights from their own Burns-inspired project “The International Poet”, followed by a selection of Jazz Standards arrangements and Ennio Morricone’s film music, and ending with some exciting Tangos. Described as “simply stunning” (Skye Chamber Music), the duo play music straight from the heart, using the Flute and Classical Guitar to speak to listeners all across the world.
