A cosy chilled night with the atmosphere of hanging out in your living room but with the added bonus of some fantastic live musicians, a bar and a load of friends you've not met yet.
Join us on 26 September for and evening with:
Scotland-based singer-songwriter Lizabett Russo merges her native traditions with elements of contemporary jazz, avant garde folk and world music, a range of influence effortlessly spanned by her powerfully versatile voice. The BBC have championed her work - featuring on both BBC Radio 3 and Radio 6 as well as the BBC stage at Latitude Festival. She has also toured extensively around Europe and Asia.
Musically Russo's influences are wide ranging. Echoes of her native Romania are beautifully interwoven with avant garde folk, contemporary jazz and world music. Her humble stage persona belies a talent which has drawn comparisons with the likes of Joanna Newsome and even Bjork!
Lizabett will be accompanied by the award-winning jazz guitarist Graeme Stephen. Today he leads and contributes to a multitude of musical projects in Scotland and overseas, playing a wide array of styles from free improvised jazz to Scottish folk. Stephen's peerless improvisational skills and talent for composition make him one of Scotland's most exciting and prodigious musical talents.
Pete Deane and the Black Kites
Borders born singer-songwriter Pete Deane sings with a revolving cast of musicians who make up the Black Kites
This Edinburgh-based bumpkin writes soulful, perhaps slightly folky songs inspired by nature and a misspent youth in the woods. Deane's mellow croon is supported by string players, often stolen from the orchestra where he works, and whomever else he can entice with nuts and berries.
Appearances are about as rare and memorable as that of the European Waxwing (Bombycilla garrulus)
Weird Cousins (Sarah Irvine)
Marrying tender dreamings with delicate melodies Weird Cousins music invites you to share in musings on friendship and folktales set against a backdrop of half a decade consumed by northern wanderlust.
‘This is simply world-class work, by any standard’
Tom Robinson, BBC Radio 6
