We are excited to announce our ‘Christmas Cracker’ of a concert with Capella String Quartet on Saturday 19th December, 8pm, at City Halls Recital Room, Glasgow! The wonderful Capella String Quartet will be accompanying us on stage for some Rose Room numbers (plus a few Christmas favourites) and will also play an opening set!

“Scottish Jazz Awards finalists Rose Room return to the Recital Rooms for a special Christmas collaboration with fellow Glasgow-based ensemble the Capella String Quartet. Having become one of Scotland’s leading ensembles influenced by the Gypsy Jazz genre, Rose Room have headlined all of the major Scottish jazz festivals and are regularly featured on BBC Radio Scotland’s ‘The Jazz House’ and Jazz FM. Accompanied by the Capella String Quartet, the concert will feature original material from their “classy, very accomplished” new album ‘The High Life’ alongside 1930s swing standards and a few Christmas classics presented in their “vigorous and vivacious” Gypsy Jazz style.
Last seen on STV Glasgow’s ‘The Riverside Show’ performing with Rose Room, the Capella String Quartet comprises players from many of Scotland’s professional orchestras. Known equally as a performance quartet and a session group, having played with the likes of Rod Stewart, Madonna, Belle and Sebastian and Laura Mvula at the MOBOs, the Scottish VOWS Award-winners will open the concert with a set of their unique pop, rock and jazz arrangements.”
