Crystal House is very pleased to be able to offer a celebration of wonderful Jazz and Blues. We have lined up three great acts for this very special event: Bancroft and Lyne, Moscow Fish and Swampcandy.
Bancroft and Lyne kick us off on Sunday afternoon with some beautiful mellow sounds with Swampcandy and Moscow Fish livening up the precedings for the evening.
Sophie Bancroft and Tom Lyne are one of Scotland's finest duo's and are regulars at the Edinburgh Jazz Festival. Tom's ability to bend and freeform on electric and double bass coupled with Sophie's outstanding vocals create a magical smooth sound not to be missed.
Swampcandy is a primitive blues influenced Americana duo. Ruben Dobbs’ aggressive finger-picking and rhythmic style (which often adds up to sounding like more than one guitar) combined with Joey Mitchell’s bass playing, pounding kick drum and percussive bass throttling (representing the presence of a full drum kit) easily fill up the sonic space normally created by a trio or even a four-piece group. Dobbs’ soulful, passionate vocals are the glue that holds it all together and makes this band tick.
Moscow Fish have announced that they are coming back to Crystal House to make this and extra special time. Moscow Fish is 2 Canadians with 2 guitars, 2 vocalists, 2 harmonica players, and 2 computers, amazing harmonies and a lot of surprises. Authentic and eclectic with a unique original sound. Whether you catch the acoustic based Blue show or their Red electronic show or another colour somewhere in the middle you’ll be catching an unforgettable experience. “…they wowed the audience…” (Borneo Post, about their performance at the KK Jazz Festival 2013).
Tickets for this magical event is just £15 (concessions available).
