This midsummer musical dreamlike feast features:
Machine Orchid is a newly formed three woman musical ecosystem. Guitarist Caro Overy (aka Bridges), harpist Deb Shaw (Aurora Engine) and violinist Emma Lloyd bring together beautifully crafted songs and sounds about everything from robots to wild animals to mermaids. Imaginative, ethereal and dripping with virtuosity, they draw on their collective experiences across folk, jazz, indie, electronic and contemporary classical music.
Edinburgh based, Viper Swing effortlessly evokes images of 1920’s, 30’s and 40’s Paris with their fiery gypsy guitars, high-flying violin melodies, gravelly vocals and infectious rhythmic bass. Their repertoire includes works by the legendary guitarist Django Reinhardt, tunes from the Great American Songbook, other swing-era hits and modern songs with a twist. What makes them extra special is that they play modern day hits in a gypsy jazz style.
Plus more acts to be confirmed...
