Heads Up! Ssc Fundraiser, Feat. Washington Irving + Guests, July 2nd @ Cabaret Voltaire, Edinburgh


MY DEAR OLD STRUAN would like to invite you to an evening of frolickingly good entertainment at the Cabaret Voltaire to raise funds for the SSC – a club for the youth of scotland. www.thessc.org

Washington Irving are an alternative folk pop sextet from Glasgow. Their powerful blend of storming vocals, folksy guitars, flute driven melodies, and pounding drums is forming a fanatical fan base across the country. Fresh after touring the length and breadth of the UK, a busy summer of festivals awaits….

“If there was any justice in the world, Washington Irving would be spread across the playlists of RADIO 1 & BBC 6 music, like a rash!” Tom Robinson – BBC 6 Music

Bwani Junction have just been confirmed for the BBC introducing stage at T and the Park, and Wickerman Festival. Watch this space!

Matt Norris & The Moon are an Edinburgh-based folk band. Their music is influenced by traditional Scottish Folk, as well as the more contemporary folk coming out of Edinburgh, Glasgow and London at the moment. http://www.facebook.com/mattnorrismoon

Mike Nisbet has recently returned from writing and recording with Marcus Mackay (Frightened Rabbit, Snow Patrol, Sparrow and the Workshop) with an astonishingly good album, it was released on 9th June. You will be hearing great things from this man very very soon.
