“Showcases the classical music of the subcontinent but also mixes, melds and modernises it.” Financial Times
Leeds-born sitarist, Jasdeep Singh Degun, is one of Britan’s leading voices in the Indian Classical tradition. His music complements the ancient traditions of raags with contemporary compositional techniques to create sparklingly cinematic music for sitar and strings. In this collaborative performance, our players and Jasdeep will spin a musical tale, driven by the beautiful spontaneity of the Indian Classical tradition, transporting you through layers of mesmerising melody.
A highlight of the journey will be a new work by Jasdeep for sitar and strings, which will come to life in these world premiere performances.

The Queen’s Hall is accessible to wheelchair users via a ramp up to the front righthand entrance, next to the Box Office. There are two wheelchair accessible toilets to the lefthand side of the rear fire exit in the bar.
Please let the Box Office know if you need a wheelchair space when buying your ticket. Our staff may need to ask either the model or size of your wheelchair to ensure we give you the best advice on accessibility. For unreserved gigs, do contact us if you have any questions or require further assistance.
We also have fantastic stage access for performers who are wheelchair users with a Mobilift CX. Read more about the lift here.
Please let the Box Office know when you buy your ticket if you are bringing a guide dog. We will try to seat you in an area that is comfortable for both you and your dog. As we no longer have a cloakroom, we are usually now unfortunately unable to look after your furry friend for you, but do ask on arrival and if we can, we will (it’s one of our favourite jobs!).
There is an induction loop in the main auditorium to help patrons with hearing difficulties. Turn your hearing aid to the T position to pick up sound directly from the stage. Please speak to an Usher if you have any problems.
Pre-pandemic we designed videos for each area of our building to give you a good idea of what to expect ahead of your visit. Building works whilst we were closed mean that these are now out-of-date. We will produce new videos as soon as we have the resources to do so. In the meantime, we have kept the video of the auditorium, as this remains unchanged. You can also download some extra information below, which we hope you will find useful.
If you would like to come and have a look around before you attend an event, please call 0131 668 2019 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and ask for Emma or Kris who can arrange this for you.
We have Sensory Kits containing ear defenders and other tools designed to make your experience enjoyable and relaxing. If you would like to use one of these, please either call 0131 668 2019 or email email@example.com to book in advance or ask for it at the Box Office when you arrive.
