Acoustic Blues and Roots

Following their highly successful Edinburgh Fringe shows in 2022 and 2023, Scottish blues singer/guitarist Derek Smith (Main Street Blues, Whisky Rd) and top harmonica player Jim Harcus (Wang Dang Delta) will be performing a great mix of authentic, up-tempo, foot stomping acoustic blues and roots, mixing classics from the Blues Greats (Robert Johnson, Albert King, Jimmy Rogers, Memphis Minnie, Sonny 'Boy' Williamson) plus re-arranged and new original blues. A fun and engaging session of live acoustic blues.

Django Under Canvas with The Already in Berlin Band

Straight-forward, hard-swinging, string-led early jazz. A drummerless line-up with a collective spirit of music-making reminiscent of music anchored in pre-war jazz styles. Capturing the spirit of jazz pioneers from an era of revolutionary, controversial and very 'hot' jazz.
