WARREN MCINTYRE CELEBRATES NINA SIMONE27 Jun
FOLLOWING A SELL-OUT CONCERT LAST YEAR, A SPECIAL GIG CELEBRATING THE SONGS OF NINA SIMON
In 1994, in a big top tent on Glasgow Green, Nina Simone played a blinding set as part of Mayfest. A young singer called Warren McIntyre was in the audience that night and invited on- stage to dance with her.
As a lifelong fan, 21 years later on March 21st he organised a concert at Glasgow Royal Concert to celebrate the singer and it was fully sold out many weeks in advance.
With help from Belle and Sebastian’s Stevie Jackson as band leader playing guitar and harmonica this is a must see show featuring a selection of top players including maestro: Allen Chalmers (piano), Adam Scott (bass guitar), Iain Stoddard (drums) John Rooney (guitar), Therese Martin (vocals), Heather Wellcoat (violin), Sophie Pragnell (viola), Jen McKee (Cello) and JP Berrie (sax).
With a set list of the songs Nina made her own such as: ‘Aint got no (I got life)’, ‘Feeling good’, ‘I want a little sugar’, ‘Do I move you?’, ‘I put a spell on you’, ‘My baby just cares for me’, ‘Don’t let me be misunderstood’, ‘Mississippi Goddam’, ‘Sinnerman’, ‘I wish I knew how it would feel to be free’ and many more – this will be a chance to hear these songs performed live.
Warren is keen for this to be an interactive event and if anyone would like a dedication made to them or a loved one, on the night they are requested to get in touch by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
