Jo Mango – Acoustic Edinburgh Album Launch – Thu 1st Nov

2012 October 13

One of my all time favourite performances at Acoustic Edinburgh was back in 2008. That was the first time I’d heard JO MANGO play and she completely floored me with her luminous vocals, uncanny lyricism, and complete mastery of the kalimba, concertina, omnichord and shruti box. Since then, her song Black Sun may well have become my most played iPod track. I’ve been waiting impatiently for the album that song is on to be finished and now it finally is. We’re hugely privileged to announce that Acoustic Edinburgh will be the first place to buy that record, Murmuration, as she headlines for us on Thursday 1st November.

You can grab the first single off that album for free here, and please do watch the beautiful new video for Black Sun!

If you want to find out more about what makes Jo tick, check out this interview with her at Famemagazine. As well as being a Dr of musicology, she has a stellar line-up of collaborators including Vashti Bunyan, Vetiver, Devendra Banhart, Adem, Teenage Fanclub and David Byrne. She even stars as “Herself” in the movie, You Instead, which had its TV premiere a couple of weeks ago.

As you can probably tell, we’re super excited to be welcoming Jo to our wee stage in the Jazz Bar. Don’t miss it – the next chance you’ve got to see her in Edinburgh will be in the much less intimate setting of the Queen’s Hall next year!

WHEN: Thursday 1st November, 8.30-11.45 (first band on 9.00)
WHERE: Jazz Bar, Chambers St
HOW MUCH: £3/4

See you there,
