Edinburgh Jazz and Blues Festival 2019 Jed Potts & The Hillman Hunters

  • Bar Brig 96-98 Leith Walk Edinburgh, Scotland, EH6 5HB United Kingdom (map)

Guitarist and vocalist, Jed Potts, is a blues musician who is starting to really make waves in the Scottish blues scene. He’s got the ability to move into a different gear, if you’re into the real blues. Lately, he’s been in Memphis recording and playing with US star, Brandon Santini and he’s moved to a new level. The Hillman Hunters are his electric trio, playing blues inspired by 50s and 60s American greats, from Freddie King to Howlin’ Wolf. Whether laying back into a Freddie King ballad or digging-in to a hypnotic Muddy Waters groove, they deliver gritty blues played with passion and power.
