Pais­ley is all set to jazz it up

Paisley Daily Express - - Front Page -

Go along to the Pais­ley Thread Suite.

The project, orig­i­nally con­ceived as part of Pais­ley’s 2021 UK City of Cul­ture bid, was to write and per­form a jazz suite de­pict­ing Pais­ley’s once famed thread in­dus­try and the dom­i­nant role world­wide of the Coats and Clark fam­i­lies.

It de­picts through mu­sic the town, the sounds and rhythms of the mills, the com­pa­nies’ global reach and the im­pact on the town and its peo­ple.

And the event, which can be seen at Pais­ley Arts Cen­tre on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 5, at 7.30pm, will also fea­ture film footage and pho­tog­ra­phy, as well as a full set from a jazz orches­tra.

Tick­ets are £ 15 (£ 12 con­ces­sion) on 0300 300 1210.
