Acoustic Edinburgh – 5th Dec – Randolph’s Leap (solo set)
It’s the last Acoustic Edinburgh of 2013, and we’ve got a very special headline set indeed for you all! Randolph’s Leap are one of Scotland’s best loved new bands, with a songwriter in Adam Ross whose turn of phrase is sharp, witty and poignant all at the same time. They bring together the pop sensibility of Belle and Sebastian, the cleverness of Ballboy, and a lightness of humour that is all their own. Recent signings to the Lost Map record label, it’s no surprise that their rise to fame appears to be meteoric, with recent headline sets at the Queen’s Hall, festivals throughout the summer, and two brilliant sessions with Marc Riley.
(Warning: video contains strobe effects.)
We can hardly believe our luck that Adam was available to give us an intimate solo set at Acoustic Edinburgh this month. Don’t miss out on this chance to catch them before they are way too big for our wee venue!
