Anthony Bowers, the Lanarkshire-based actor and singer, launches a new series of jazz and blues concerts in Biggar when he appears with pianist Euan Stevenson’s trio at the South Lanarkshire town’s Corn Exchange on Friday, September 28.
Bowers, who trained at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and has played a police constable, a journalist and a TV reporter on Coronation Street, has worked in theatre, television and radio since graduating in 2003 and has also appeared in the BBC legal drama Garrow’s Law and the sit-com Happy Hollidays. As a singer, he has worked with musicians including leading London-based pianist David Newton and the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra saxophonist Konrad Wiszniewski.
Bowers will be singing selections from the Great American Songbook in the first of the Corn Exchange concerts which also feature the award-winning young Scottish pianist Fergus McCreadie’s trio on Saturday, November 10. Further concerts in the series are expected to be announced soon.
