Back to Scott-Land

Stu Brown's Raymond Scott Project, previously noted when they performed in Edinburgh last February, are taking the stage again, this time in Glasgow. On Saturday, June 21, the band will launch their controlled mayhem in a venue billed as "Scotland's Last Surviving Music Hall"—the Britannia Panopticon, which opened in 1859 (too recent to have an 18th century drawing room).

The evening includes a screening of footage from Raymond Scott: On To Something, a work-in-progress documentary by Scott's son, filmmaker Stan Warnow.

After hearing rehearsal takes of the band, RaymondScott.com's Jeff Winner exclaimed: "I'm completely knocked-out—I thought I was hearing the original Quintette!"
