Acoustic Edinburgh – this Tuesday – Gavin Moore headline

Featuring: Ned Goodwin, Clare Kennedy, One Day 40, Anna Neale & Gavin Moore
From: 8:30, free entry

Despite being a showcase for all that is wonderful about acoustic music, Acoustic Edinburgh has, perhaps surprisingly, very rarely seen a headline that could be said to be that most acoustic of musical forms: Folk. We’re very happy to be correcting that this week by welcoming to these shores GAVIN MOORE, who is currently on a whirlwind tour of the UK. Gavin comes from Ireland’s most famous musical dynasty and his influences include his uncles, Christy Moore and Luka Bloom, but Gavin goes beyond the traditional folk music sound of his family and brings a soulful edge to his vocal delivery and rock leanings with his driving guitar rhythms on many songs. Having supported the likes of Shane McGowan, Roy Harper and John Spillane, it’ll be great to hear Gavin on the stage in Medina.

As ever, our headline act is only part of the story of an Acoustic Edinburgh evening, and we’ve got a range of different styles for you this week – from the country vibe of ONE DAY 40 (described as “Matchbox 20 in a street fight with the Eagles”) to the acoustic rock of ANNA NEALE, all the way up from London. Any of our acts this week could have been a headline, so don’t miss a moment!

See you there,

    It was a great night. I could’ve listened to Gavin indefinitely, I think! One Day 40 were a revelation too. It was a nightmare mixing 4 vocals on the wee Medina stage, but more than worth it for the fantastic harmonies… I’m really looking forward to their headline set next year. (Although we may need a build an extension to fit what they’re planning on bringing!)
