Britain’s greatest living violinist is in the North West this weekend after a sell-out tour of the nation earlier this year.

Nigel Kennedy has taken his Bach Plus Concert Series around the world and, after a staggering response, added eight further dates across the UK over this summer.

The only North West date is at Southport Theatre tomorrow night.

A typically maverick musical programme will see the violin virtuoso celebrate the music of Bach as well as other brilliant composers that have influenced him.

The concert takes the listener on a journey which begins with Bach sonatas and partitas for solo violin, after which Kennedy is joined by two acoustic guitarists, a drummer and a double bass to perform his own arrangements of some of his favourite music from Fats Waller and Brubeck to Monti’s Czardas and more.

The best-selling violinist of all time, whose technical brilliance has been admired in an international career spanning three decades, Kennedy remains one of the world’s leading musicians.

Nigel Kennedy is at Southport Theatre on Saturday, June 28, from 7.30pm.
