Acoustic Edinburgh 10 Year Anniversary – Tue 6th March – Paul Gilbody and the Invisible Band

2012 March 1

Over a decade ago, Paul and I helped out our friend Katie Tunstall run a lovely little live music night in the Gilded Saloon called Acoustic Extravaganza. Much has happened since then. Katie took her music out of the Cowgate bar and across the world (although the title of the night was reborn for her second album release), that Cowgate bar burnt down in the Great Music Venue Fire of ’02, and we moved our acoustic night up the road to Medina. It’s now ten years since we renamed the event Acoustic Edinburgh and it took the form you see it now. Rather than wonder in amazement at how we got so old, Paul and I thought it would be fun to throw a bit of a party.

So, we thought we’d invite the very best of our very favourite Acoustic Edinburgh performers from over the years to come along and play a song or two. It should be both pleasingly shambolic and musically awe-inspiring! Headlining the event will be a band some thought would never be formed. Paul Gilbody has performed solo on many of our nights as the opening act, but it has taken him 10 long years to finally get a band together. This night, they will perform for you!

If you have other plans for Tuesday night, I recommend cancelling them. Events this good don’t come along often! In fact, I expect the next one will be in another 10 years time…

TIME: 7.30pm
PLACE: The Third Door (underneath Negociants)
