Orchestra Collaborations

Dawanggang | 5th – 7th Aug 

“Brings together the past and present, in the form of Asian folklore, sound art, Chinese Opera and rock”, BBC Radio 3

Housekind | 10th & 12th Aug 

Beautiful, Trad-inspired folk with indie undertones, and poetically-told stories

Duke Duncan & The Hurricanes | 11th Aug 

A hedonistic psychedelic melange, like Alice out-hatting the Mad Hatter with Kerouac at The Hacienda.

PINLIGHT | 13th Aug 

Thoughtful electro alt-pop with neon laced synths, interwoven orchestral instruments and themes of self-affirmation and love.

Brave Little Note | 14th Aug

Alter ego of song-writer and composer Jacqueline Irvine, Brave Little Note was born of an inherent need for musical expression, and this is reflected in the honesty of her writing.

Jellymans Daughter | 17th – 18th Aug

Somewhere between the realms of folk, bluegrass, pop, rock and chamber music […] a deeply soulful, break-neck amalgam of old-time and new age roots influences”, Popmatters

Culture Clan | 19th Aug

Collective of rappers and spoken word artists in Edinburgh

S!nk | 20th – 21st Aug

S!nk compose music on the spot, realising rough-hewn instrumental explorations which open out into rich landscapes of sound. ‘Mysterious and beautiful’, The Wire
