The Blueswater Edinburgh Bash (support from Logan's Close, Melisa Kelly and the Smokin' Crows)
Award winning rhythm and blues band The Blueswater will be ending their UK tour in style, and they are bringing friends. Expect loads of sweat and dancing.
The Blueswater is an award winning, Edinburgh based band that tours internationally. Influenced by gritty, old-school rhythm and blues they blend the Chicago sound of Chess records with the earthy, droning grooves of Mississippi to create a style that is truly unique. Thick guitar riffs and frenzied harmonica solos are built around driving rhythms to create raucous, high-energy performances.
In 2011, they premiered their show BLUES! At the Edinburgh Fringe to great acclaim, and in 2012 received a Mervyn Stutter Spirit of the Fringe Award. The show, a musical history of the blues genre, now regularly tours across the UK.
