Sam Brooks & Evering

SAM BROOKES

Sam Brookes is reminiscent of Tim Buckley as he glides between the lower and upper registers of his four-octave range. His pure voice, evocative lyrics and soaring melodies have made him a rising figure in the alt-folk scene.

Tempus, released 3rd May, sees Sam rework Kairos’s most arresting, intimate songs into richly layered acoustic versions with the help of producer Laurence Love Greed and some of the UK’s finest session players.

“he excels at propulsive, narratively rich folk, delivered in a soaring, clear-as-a-bell singing voice” - The Sunday Times
“there are vast emotional reserves at work” - The Independent
“a stunning work on so many levels” - Folk Radio

WATCH SAM BROOKES: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mn-mjYu-lDw

EVERING

Evering is an acoustic duo formed by Scottish singer-songwriters Chris Yendell (Helensburgh) and Dawn Coulshed (The Black Isle) with the common goal of creating an original sound within an indie / folk genre.

Growing up on the likes of Led Zeppelin, Chris's raw vocals are immediately engaging and are supported by full sounding acoustic guitar riffs. Dawn trained as a classical pianist and her intricate piano work and distinctive vocal harmonies add to the duo’s timeless sound.

Evering released their debut EP titled Running Circles in 2015 which received coverage from BBC Introducing and XFM. Their most recent release, Beyond Oceans EP, took them to Berlin to record with producer Greg Freeman (Goldfrapp, Portico Quartet) and featured the lead single Driftwood.


"Great track with a bursting talent & energy” - Dave Rowntree (XFM)
“Folk at its best” - Fortitude Magazine

Mammoth Penguins + Nice Church

Facebook link: https://www.facebook.com/events/2184431961820464/ 

Ticket link: https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/4105804

Cambridge based Mammoth Penguins return to Edinburgh in the wake of the release of their new album, (their first on Fika Recordings), 'There's No Fight We Can't Both Win'; another awesome collection of punchy pop songs, garagey guitar fuzz, and an unflinchingly honest and wry songwriting voice, from the band's principle chronicler, Emma Kupa (Standard Fare, Hayman Kupa Band). Their's is a simple formula on paper, but the songs are 3 minute masterclasses in how to spin fresh magic out of 4 chords, drums, guitar and bass. Layers of vocals and keyboards add texture to a sophisticated pop sound all their own.

Support comes from Edinburgh/Glasgow indie poppers Nice church Lyrical, clever, charmingly lofi stuff for fans of silver jews and socialism.

Leith Jazz and Blues Festival 2019- Jed Potts and the Hillman Hunters

Jed Potts and the Hillman Hunters have been supplying only the deepest of grooves and the rudest of shuffles since 2008. The trio is completed (most of the time) by Jonny Christie and Charlie Wild on drums and bass respectively and are all about general musical rascallity, although usually within the confines of a 12 bar structure, mind you.
You can mostly catch JP & the HH around Edinburgh but every once in a while they get out and play a festival and they've also opened for the likes of yer Ian Siegal, yer Nimmo Brothers and yer The Hoax, to name-drop but a few

Check out this video of them from the last festival. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aXJslNF1Kho&feature=share

Leith Jazz and Blues Festival weekender- Gin Mill Genies

The Gin Mill Genies are passionate about ‘pre electric' and piano-centric prohibition era blues, gospel and jazz. The band offer a chance to hear ancient rarely heard Southern blues songs performed with prowess. The musicians include trumpet genius, Colin Steele, Aberdonian Steve Hamilton on piano and Andrew Sharky on bass.

Ali has earned her solid reputation as the quintessential ‘go to’ vocalist for authentic trad Jazz / prohibition era blues and as she is also an American AND a swing dancer, Ali is uniquely placed to deliver this music with cultural authority! Representing the Pioneers of early music (particularly the forgotten heroines!) Ali's fresh interpretations breathe new life into this highly specialised music and this sees her leading the charge for bringing old school Jazz back to the attention of our modern ears!

With an ever growing repertoire, Ali delights in her "lifetimes work" of exploring the jazz archives to find ancient gems to share - from saucy and fun, to dark and sinister, her bands are working hard to resurrect amazing forgotten songs and as an early jazz historian Ali offers up interesting and educational stage chat in a bid to help keep this rich musical heritage alive!
Passionate, expressive, unique and above all, refreshingly unpretentious...Ali Affleck is the real deal - a bona fide Jazz and blues vocalist with a heartfelt vintage twist.

“Music from another Place and Time but puts a smile on the faces of the Here and Now” – Jim Gilchrist, Scotsman

Trappist Afterland & Moongazing Hare
Jun

8:00 PM20:00

Trappist Afterland & Moongazing Hare

Trappist Afterland(Australia) make folk music using vocals, various acoustic stringed instruments; tabla, percussion, harmonium and tanpura drones. They explore psychedelia and chanting amidst folk songs.

Although the influence of folk music from various sectors around the world can be heard in Trappist Afterland's music (The British folk revival, 70's acid folk, Gamelan music, Middle Eastern music, Indian raga) they still maintain a unique and almost otherworldly quality, that sounds unlike anyone else.

With lyrical explorations delving into Gnosticism, Christian mysticism and other esoteric themes, Trappist still manage to keep their music firmly grounded in the present while maintaining a timeless quality.

Recommend getting your tickets in advance from this available via this link-https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/trappist-afterland-aus-moongazing-hare-den-tickets-55868076922


Moongazing Hare (Denmark)

I try to keep myself warm, calm, loved and out of harm's way. The music is desperately home made and mostly well-intentioned.

John Edge & The Kings of Nowhere

Advance tickets-https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/john-edge-the-kings-of-nowhere-tickets-57837637932

John Edge & The Kings of Nowhere provide an energetic live show with songs about love, life, death, and all else in between.  The Edinburgh based band are genre defying, yet perhaps described as euphoric folk fused with post-rock. The band carry an abundance of raw power, melodious songs, huge dynamics, and all fused together and driven by Edge’s enchanting lyrics and totality on stage. Everything the band has to offer is poured out in their performance. They are easy on the ear yet intensely emotional.  CLASH ~ “Edge is a supple, entrancing songwriter. An artist of real power… Easy on the ear yet intensely emotional.” CELTIC CONNECTIONS ~ ”John Edge & The Kings of Nowhere are increasingly gathering admirers for Edge's winning delivery and the band's crisp, atmospheric enhancement of his attractively moody songs”
