Blues * Rhythm’n’Blues * Swing * Blues * Ragtime

The Blueswater is an award-winning Edinburgh-based band 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.

Jake Watson and The Swamp Stomp String Band are not your average Americana band. Twangy Banjos, driving Guitars and a thudding Double Bass sit behind anything from drinking songs that’l have the room stomping there feet and shooting tequila to ballads that’l break even the most toughest folks, to ragtime songs of bar fights and gambling. The London based duo can often be found busking by the side of Thames in the day and performing in any haunt from high end cocktails joints to dimly lit Irish bars at night.

Taking a mixture of Jazz, Country, Swing, Blues and Ragtime – it is safe to say there music is there to be enjoyed by people young and old, rich or poor, or who just love to stamp there feet and have a ho-down.”
