(EDINBURGH, SCOTLAND) – The 2020 Scottish Blues “Weekend” returns from Thursday Feb 6 to Monday Feb 10, bringing together Scottish blues icons and students of the blues.
Curated by singer, Nicole Smit and guitarists Jed
Potts and Sandy Tweeddale, three Edinburgh musical talents with their fingers
on the pulse of what’s hot in Scottish blues, the event aims to showcase the
best of the music happening in Scotland right now.
They say, “The Scottish Blues Weekend shines the
spotlight on Scottish Blues and offers a platform for new projects. It’s great
to be able to showcase such a diverse range of blues, as well as a host of
bands led by women. We hope that you’ll enjoy the weekend, and we especially
hope that you’ll see someone you might not have seen before.
“Fresh from her sell-out performance at
Edinburgh Jazz & Blues Festival, Nicole Smit delivers a standout concert
embracing contemporary tunes and stellar interpretations of the classics made
famous by the inspirational blues women of the past. She is joined by Cera
Impala in duo with Lake Montgomery (Delightful Squalor).
