The soul-jazz-funk singer-songwriter burst onto the city’s music scene at 15 and has already supported the likes of Rod Stewart and Van Morrison.

The paisley-born star has recently won best breakthrough female artist at the Scottish Music Awards and has twice been named best vocalist at the Scottish Jazz Awards.

Kitti said: “Playing live is what I was born to do. This year has been a whirlwind of recording my album and playing some incredible live shows so it feels only right that I’ll be rounding off the year playing live.

“Music is such a huge part of Hogmanay, and I couldn’t think of anything better to be doing at the bells than performing. We will be performing as a jazz duo so it’ll be a combination of jazz hits and some festive classics too."

Glasgow Times:

Tickets for the event cost £75 per person and include a four-course meal at the hotel’s sister restaurant Hazel with fizz on arrival.

AC Hotel’s general manager Craig Munro said: “I have a lot of happy memories from the George Square celebrations.

"There are big plans for the square and we hope one day the celebrations will come back, but in the meantime, we want to give people a night to remember.

“We’re excited to welcome guests from around Scotland and beyond for a proper Glasgow Hogmanay and are so proud kitti has chosen to spend the Bells with us.”
