EFG London Jazz Festival / Scotland Unwrapped

Sun 17 Nov


EFG London Jazz Festival / Scotland Unwrapped

Scottish musical duo Norman&Corrie bring their unique musical setup to present bewitching, adventurous interpretations of traditional melodies at Kings Place as part of the EFG London Jazz Festival, ahead of the release of their debut album in November 2024.

The duo are challenging traditional notions of folk and jazz with new pieces translated from ancestral melodies that they recently discovered during a residency in Shetland, where they spent time learning from tradition-bearers and explored the music archives of the Shetland Museum.

Norman Wilmore, originally from Shetland, and Corrie Dick from Glasgow, each have deep respect for their shared heritage, their music bridging the gap between tradition and innovation, and infusing ancestral melodies with modern production techniques and instruments.

The pair are immersed in the jazz and contemporary music scene, Corrie performing with Dinosaur, Jacob Collier and Rob Luft, and Norman working with The Peatbog Faeries and Beth Orton. Together, they bring to life a project that reflects their shared Scottish identity.

Their unique setup, featuring a drum kit, saxophone and organ foot pedals, combined with expert sound design, results in music that’s both vibrant and firmly rooted. Through unique drones, field recordings, powerful rhythms, earthy electronics and sub-bass, gut-punchingly evocative melodies, and a joyous spirit of exploration, their music responds to humanity’s longing for the known while embracing the unknown. Audiences routinely leave concerts feeling uplifted and inspired by the bewitching sounds of Norman&Corrie.

This event will last approximately 90 minutes, without an interval.


‘Corrie is the perfect drummer/percussionist… colouring each piece with precision, complex rhythms/techniques and visible enjoyment’ London Jazz News

‘Norman Wilmore improvises around Shetland tunes in cross-genre collaborations – even trying to bend and shape his breaths to echo different techniques on string instruments.’ The Guardian
