Stramash - Jed Potts & the Hillman HuntersJed Potts and the Hillman Hunters

Onstage: 00.30hrs

Formed in 2008, Jed Potts & the Hillman Hunters have cultivated a stage performance which is exciting and spontaneous. Drawing from the rich well of classic 50’s and 60’s American blues the trio (completed by drummer Jonny Christie and bassist Pauric Logue) stay true to the traditions of the music whilst also taking risks. Whether laying back into a Freddie King ballad or digging-in to a hypnotic Muddy Waters groove, the band transmits power in ways other than speed and volume. The unlimited dynamic possibilities of a simple trio format make for a charismatic performance which is different every single night.

JP & the HH have supported the likes of Ian Siegal (who joined the band on stage for a performance of Muddy Waters’ ‘Long Distance Call’), Ben Poole (the line-up for this show consisted of Jed, Pauric, Eilidh McKellar on 2nd guitar and Neil Warrack on drums), Aynsley Lister, Pat McManus, Paul Garner and The River Devils. JP & the HH have performed at the Shetland Blues Festival, the Bell Rock Blues Festival in Arbroath (this show featured special guest Cameron Gray of The Pentatonics on harmonica) and Jed also appeared as part of Tim Elliot’s Troublemakers band for a show at the 2011 Edinburgh Jazz and Blues Festival. Later that same year Jed played with Jerry Donahue and Gregg Wright as part of a series of special events in Edinburgh. Jed has also performed three shows as part of an expanded version of Blues ‘n’ Trouble when they played with (and as back-up band to) Maggie Bell.
