Done woke up this mornin’…

...and found myself with a baa-aaad case of the blues. Yeh.  That was me the morning after I didn't book a ticket to see The BLUESWATER play Birnam Arts last time around.

This September sees the return of Scotland's own fabulous blues purists, after they rocked and rolled and rhythm'ed and blew the roof off a packed house on their last visit.  These guys are steeped in the music, covering the history of the blues all the way from Memphis to Chicago, by way of Detroit, New Orleans and the Mississippi Delta.   And maybe a little bit from the 60s' British Blues boom (boom, boom, boom) thrown in.  

So if you know your Billie Holiday from your BB King, your Robert Johnson from your Robert Cray, yo' Big Mama Thornton from yo' Big Bill Broonzy - or you just want to discover the most authentic rhythm & blues band in the country, then haul yo' asses down to Birnam Arts this Saturday.   You won't regret it.

But book early, brothers and sisters, lessen you wanna end up like po' ol' me, howlin’ at the moon with those "left it too late an couldn't get a ticket" homesick blues.

Oh yeah.

The Blueswater Saturday 15th September 7:30pm Birnam Arts

THE BLUESWATER rocked the house when they were here last year…  one of the busiest Edinburgh Blues bands on the circuit, they know their rhythm and blues music inside out - Chicago sound with earthy, droning grooves of Mississippi, thick guitar riffs and frenzied harmonica solos built around driving rhythms, creating high-energy performances that leave you wanting more and more.

“Terrific set of blues songs… Great night out.” Ian Rankin

“Definitely a band to watch!’Blues in Britain


The Blueswater are Felipe Schrieberg  on vocals, Charlie Wild on guitar, Jed Potts on guitar, Gordon Jones on harmonica, Ewan Gibson on bass and Simon Gibb on drums.
