The Edinburgh Guitar Night takes place once every second month, on Sunday evenings at the Jazz Bar, on Chambers Street in the heart of the city centre. More information on the listings can be found on their website.
The April edition features:
Belfast-Based Instrumental Duo String Ninjas are made up of fingerstyle guitarist Gavin Ferris & electric violinist Mick Conlon. There may only be two in the band, but their sound is as big as their personalities! Gavin takes care of the rhythm, bass & harmony thanks to his virtuosic and percussive guitar style, while Mick handles the bulk of the melody lines thanks to his classical training and desire to sound like Hendrix on Violin!
August Saint-Giles is a 27 year old, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Glasgow, Scotland.
His roots are in Blues, Jazz, Country, Bluegrass and Folk music. Having played the roll of accompanist on electric bass, in many successful outfits, he has since decided to focus more on writing and performing original material. His band, The Black Denims, meld his influences together cohesively, making for an exciting blend of genres and disciplines.
He is joined by one of a kind violinist, Roo Geddes, whose musical accomplishments and accolades would need to be shortened into a small book to do justice. Roo is a musical titan, and the secret ingredient in the band.
UK guitarist and singer Ali Tod blends modern percussive fingerstyle guitar techniques with classical training and loop-pedal mastery, to create a live acoustic experience that gets hands clapping, hips shaking and feet stomping.
£10/£8 entry on the door.
