The Manchester-born violinist Gregory Scott is returning to his home city in early May, for one night only. He will be performing his show ‘Strings at Night’ at the Dancehouse on Oxford Road. For this candlelit concert, he will be backed by musicians from the Royal Northern College of Music, who will be playing instrumental favourites from stage and screen – including music from Game of Thrones, and interpretations of songs by David Bowie, Michael Jackson and Prince. Throughout his career, Scott has mixed classical with the modern. He started out with the BBC Philharmonic, where he was discovered by the pop svengali Pete Waterman. He later toured with rock icons such as Bryan Ferry and k.d. lang, and was a soloist with the Hong Kong Phil. His debut album, Duel, reached number one in the UK’s classical chart.
