Jess Morgan & Nels Andrews

  • Brig Below 96-98 Leith Walk Edinburgh, Scotland United Kingdom (map)

ENTRY £8 OTD

Jess Morgan and Nels Andrews are two of the best storytelling songwriters in the game, and to have them both at the same gig is a dream.

This Autumn they're touring some new tunes and some new ideas. Nels' recent single The Pigeon & Crow comes with a beautifully illustrated graphic novel, and Jess' new book of illustrated short stories springs from the psyche of a touring artist who finds romance in the iconography of British roads. 

Nels' songwriting is intensely poetic and full of clever, occasionally supernatural imagery, told through his warm Americana country voice. Jess' songs can move from personal one minute to profound and worldly the next. Both are masters of their craft, beloved of their peers, and you'll be in good hands all evening.

“Nels is a master carver, an artist patient and obsessed enough to turn a whale of an idea into something delicate and beautiful from any angle.” – Anais Mitchell.

"The sort of thing you put on your headphones when walking alone and wanting to feel like you’re in your own gritty British love story." – TRASH magazine on Jess Morgan
