About Paul Towndrow: Charlie Parker with Strings

Saxophonist Paul Towndrow leads a glorious 16 piece string orchestra with a star studded jazz rhythm section, as they pay homage to some of the most iconic music in recorded jazz history. As well as reproduction and re-interpretation of the original classic arrangements, expect never-before-heard string arrangements of Charlie Parker compositions, penned by Towndrow himself.

Saxophonist Paul Towndrow is best known as a bandleader of ensembles ranging from duo to sextet. He is also a long-time member of Scotland’s flagship jazz orchestra, The SNJO. Performing professionally since the age of 15, and having spent his formative musical years studying on both sides of the Atlantic, Towndrow has become one the UK’s busiest musicians.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Paul Towndrow: Charlie Parker with Strings are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
