Bobby WellinsCulloden Moor Suite is a sleeping giant of jazz and chamber music. An eloquent lament for the fallen in battle and a beautiful, soulful celebration of one of Scotland’s most haunting historical locations, it is a rarely visited masterpiece long deserving of a wider audience and brilliantly rearranged for the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra.

His other piece is about Robert Burns – a musical celebration of early family life through his inspirational writing to his fall from grace. With Wellins’ tenor saxophone – an entirely individual sound that is indelibly associated with Stan Tracey’s 1960s classic Under Milk Wood recording – as the leading voice at the head of Europe’s finest large scale jazz ensemble, the SNJO, this much-anticipated performance promises atmosphere, drama, spontaneous creativity and spiritually uplifting music.
