Event Details

THE SPINNING BLOWFISH

Onstage: 1.30AM

A three-piece band with David Spiers on bagpipes, Ram Salafia on electric guitar and Narayana Salafia on drums. These guys give their our own twist to every Scottish or non- Scottish tune they put their hands on, stretching far and wide into territories unknown to folk music, but always with a quirky sense of humour and a ragged street band’s attitude!

DIE HAPPY

Onstage: 12AM

Die Happy, Edinburgh’s best/worst pub band, largely ignoring the last two decades of musical creativity, play songs you didn’t know you liked in a way you’ll love!

Smells like Mature Cheddar…

3 WISE MONKEYS

Onstage: 9.30PM

3 Wise Monkeys is a rocking cover outfit hailing from Auld Reekie (Edinburgh, Scotland). Formed from the idea of being the band we wanted to see when we walked into a pub….uncomplicated and more importantly… FUN!
Punk based, but doing songs from all areas/genres, the ideal band to take it to last orders.

REECE HILLIS

Onstage: 7PM

Reece Hillis is a young extremely talented soul/blues guitarist, singer & songwriter. In his early teens, he was exposed to the sounds of the original pioneers. These include Sam Cooke, The Dixie Hummingbirds, James Brown, Al Green, and Johnny Cash among many many more. He has been gracing our stage every now and then for many years now offering two sets of the best blues and soul classics played with extreme passion!!!

 

CALUM BAIRD & CALUM BUSBY

Onstage: 5PM

Calum Baird is a Scottish singer-songwriter, musician and artist-activist, playing songs that tie together progressive and romantic themes in a folk music style influenced by Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Dick Gaughan, Phoebe Bridgers and Phil Ochs amongst others. Calum’s music incorporates a wide selection of instruments which takes his music into the indie-folk/folk-rock genres. He will be supported by Calum Busby, a well-known local musician. The unlimited dynamic possibilities of a simple duo format make for a charismatic performance which is different every single night.
