City of London Festival

The City of London is working with Glasgow Life to present ‘Curtain Raiser’ for the culture programme of the Commonwealth Games in The Guildhall. It features the violinist Nicola Benedetti working with leading Scottish folk musicians on traditional music. The concert also features the amazing Mzani Youth Choir from South Africa.

To open the show, Duncan leads his own quartet in a selection of fiendishly catchy dance tunes, before South Africa’s leading show choir take the stage with an assortment of traditional music, pop and jazz.

Tickets available at £25, £18, £10. For more information, please visit The City of London site at
