Helena Kay to take part in Aberdeen Jazz Festival

Helena Kay

Jazz saxophonist and 2021 City Music Foundation Artist Helena Kay has been announced as part of the line up of Aberdeen Jazz Festival. Their performance will be one of the festival’s more unusual and highly anticipated events: SoundBath, a series of site-specific performances in the historic Bon Accord Baths. Closed to the public since 2008, the vast, light-drenched, atmospheric cathedral-like space will form an atmospheric backdrop to two new and specially-commissioned short performances by Helena Kay plus cellist Juliette Lemoine.

Not only a visual spectacle, the acoustics of the cavernous Art Deco building also create an amazing aural experience, with sound reverberating around the tiled walls and pool floor. A unique opportunity to step inside and immerse yourself in this hugely atmospheric space filled with memories. 

SoundBath is free but a ticket is required – bookings open on Saturday 25th February.

Helena Kay is a tenor saxophonist and composer based in London. Originally from Perth, Scotland, she moved to London in 2012 to study at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, graduating in 2016 with a First Class Degree in BMus Jazz (Hons). During her time studying, she was awarded the Young Scottish Jazz Musician of the Year Award (2015). In 2021, she was selected to become a City Music Foundation Artist.
