So another RBS 6 Nations rugby tournament comes to an end this week and as a bloke born & raised in Belfast to English parents who’s lived more than half my life in Scotland (and with a great affection for the French, Italians & Welsh), I take a musicians approach to sports i.e. I’m never too bothered who wins as long as everyone’s had enough beer.
The final matches are this Saturday and I thought we should mark the event with a very special gig in Edinburgh on Sunday with performances by musicians from 3 of those 6 nations (all 6 would have taken too long) at the beautiful Caves venue!
Donna needs no introduction for those of you in Edinburgh but if you haven’t heard her incredible music, look her up HERE! We’ve done quite a bit of collaboration over the years, (including THIS VIDEO) so it’s going to be a lot of fun sharing the bill with her again.
Emily is another brilliant songstress who’s on a UK tour promoting her brand new album “All at Sea”. She came and played the acoustic night I co-organise (Acoustic Edinburgh) during the Edinburgh Festival a few years back and blew us away. I saw her on her Edinburgh tour date last year too and I’m so chuffed she’s completing the line-up along with her amazing side-man Fiddes Smith. If you like your music real and raw, you’ll be swept away by All At Sea!
I’ll also be officially launching my latest record on the night – a 3-track single of Ricochet.
There are only 150 of these strictly limited edition disks and the iTunes release is just one song – so snap it up on the night!
So hopefully you’ll be enticed by this musical feast & come and celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with us at The Caves – cheap advance tickets are only available until midnight on Saturday (Ł6) after that it’s a tenner on the door.
