The first post-Festival weekend looks like being a quiet one.
Bassist Andy Sharkey is at Brel on Saturday afternoon with a quartet which includes
Euan Stephenson on piano.
Nigel Clark is playing a solo guitar set at Cafe Cossachok in King Street on Sunday
at 9pm. Admission is £6, but I’m not sure if you can book for the gig on its own or
if you’re expected to buy a meal there beforehand. I haven’t eaten in Cossachok
since it moved back to King Street, but it used to be pretty good. I’m particularly
fond of their borscht. Some decent Russian food followed by some good jazz makes a
nice night out.
Mira Opalinska’s Saturday lunchtime performance in the old Britannia Panopticon in
Argyle Street sees her wearing her classical hat, not her jazz one. She’ll be
playing music by Chopin. If you’ve not been in it before, it’s a fascinating
building. Rob Adams did an interview with Opalinska for the Herald a week or so back.
