Acoustic Edinburgh – Alan R Davison headline – Thu 4th April

2013 March 27

We’re delighted to have one of our most popular singer/songwriters and a cornerstone of the Edinburgh music scene return to Acoustic Edinburgh for a headline slot this month. Alan Davison recently released his debut solo album, White Eagle Lounge, after a decade of performing with a breathtaking range of musicians and acts. It’s a mark of the respect that Alan garners among fellow musicians that he brought together more than 35 performers to work on his album with him, including Nathan Connolly and Tom Simpson from Snow Patrol, singer/songwriter Alex Cornish and Rick McMurray from Ash.


the real beauty in ‘The White Eagle Lounge’ lies in … a surprisingly diverse and enchanting series of songs … My lasting impression of ‘The White Eagle Lounge’ is its sense of sonic exploration through collaboration. Davison’s willingness to experiment with instrumentation and vocal arranging, to include employing a slew of guest musicians, doesn’t override his keen musicianship or the solo nature of his work.

There Goes The Fear

To round out the night, we’ll have fantastic short sets from The Fearless DivideHannah O’Reilly and Scott Cowie.

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

What better way to try and come to terms with the start of the new Ice Age than spend a few hours in a warm basement bar in the company of these lovely musicians?
