The False Economy
Esther Swift has travelled the world extensively with her music making and embraces many different influences in her virtuosic harp playing, composing and song writing. She writes songs about her homeland of Scotland, drawing on her folk roots and taking inspiration from nature and the people she meets along the way. An eclectic blend of jazz, folk, classical and everything in between Esther will share with you her stories and musical experiences from around the world.

An improvising saxophonist and multi-instrumentalist Matt Wright is one third of the new music ensemble Sink, whose theatrical live shows and improvisational work continue to inspire audiences and artists alike. Recent achievements include five star reviews for their latest Fringe show and completion of their soon to be released third album ‘Popupocalypse’. Since 2012 Matt has been making his own bespoke tuned percussion, manufactured from discarded gas canisters. Matt is also the co-founding Director and Producer of the Pianodrome, the world’s first amphitheatre made entirely from upcycled pianos.

Jellyman’s Daughter
Scottish band The Jellyman’s Daughter lands squarely in the middle of a crossroads between bluegrass, post-rock, folk and soul, managing at the same time to sound not a whole lot like any of those genres. Emily and Graham write their songs together with a focus on doing something new, mixing their intimate vocal harmonies with wild and visceral cello, driving guitar and sweet mandolin, complimented brilliantly by banjo (Jamie Francis) and double bass (Herbie Loening).

In 2018 The Jellyman’s Daughter released their new album, ‘Dead Reckoning’. It represents a marked step forward in maturity, depth and scope for the duo, achieving 5 stars in multiple publications and inclusion in Popmatters’ ‘The 20 Best Folk Albums of 2018’.

The past couple of years have seen the band tour extensively around the globe, playing prestigious festivals from Scotland’s own Celtic Connections to Australia’s Port Fairy Folk Festival.
