The Blackjack Blues Band
With the current line up formed in late 2010, The Blackjack Blues Band hail from the confines of Scotland's capital city, Edinburgh. The line up consists of Jonny Lawrie on vocals and harmonica (plus acoustic and electric guitar), Rick Lawrie on bass, Jonny and Rick have performed at many blues venues throughout the UK over the last 10 years or so. Keeping it in the family, brothers Paul & Simon Harmer complete the line up on lead guitar and drums respectively. The Harmer Boys have played in various acts over the years, Paul in Edinburgh outfit Garner while Simon raised hell in the Juke Joint Boogie Blues Band. Drawing on many influences from as diverse a path as contemporary artists such as The Hoax to the established Blues kings such as Muddy Waters, Freddie King and Sonny Boy Williamson. It sees the band at times paying homage to the much loved Surrey blues Delta of the 60's and a nod to the chaps from the Oil City Island as well.
Junction n Joining ; joint, meeting place. Kinnaber Junction lives up to this definition as the paths of Folk, Americana and Rock converge to produce music as varied as those individual genres.
Kinnaber Junction is the musical vehicle for Montrose singer/songwriter Gary Anderson and can play in several different formats from solo performances from Gary himself to a full band line-up. Whatever the lineup they can provide a full set of original material or mix it up with complimentary covers. Therefore whatever your requirements Kinnaber Junction can cover it.
Gary gigs all over Scotland and has opened for artists such as Dougie Maclean, Blue Rose Code, Old Blind Dogs, Skerryvore, The Blockheads and many others. Other notable appearances have included Celtic Connections, Dougie MacLean's Perthshire Amber Festival and Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival.
