Bruach Bar, Gulistan House, Papa Jacques, Post Office Bar, Sol Y Sombra 


Ugly Bug Ragtime Three

The swingiest, happiest of 20’s and 30’s jazz from the wee band with the big, big sound featuring the clarinet and saxophone of John Burgess; the banjo and guitar of Ross Milligan; and the ever swinging bass of Andy Sharkey.

Brass Gumbo

Funky brass – with the band that takes contemporary and classic pop tunes, and gives them the New Orleans funky feel, and make every show a party.

Alison Affleck's Copper Cats

Good time, energetic and lively vintage Jazz  - a mix of Tin Pan Alley, the Great American Songbook standards, and traditional New Orleans Blues from “stunningly expressive” (San Diego Union Tribune) award-winning vintage vocalist Alison Affleck and her brilliant band.

Boteco Trio

Led by Brazilian multi Instrumentalist, Mario Caribé, Boteco Trio play ‘hand picked’ songs of the vast Brazilian repertoire drawing from samba, bossa nova, baião, chôro, and MPB. They bring the buzz and excitement of Rio’s streets to your doorstep. With Stu Brown on drums, and Brian Molley on woodwinds. 

The Dundonees 

An all star Dundonian band featuring Walter Smith (clarinet), Fraser Burke (keys), Kenny Irons (bass), Greg Irons (drums). 

Al Hughes

Al plays 6&12 string guitar and harmonica, but it’s his voice which is often singled out as the keystone of his sound. Described by one critic as sounding as if it had been aged in oak casks, it has a haunting smoky quality which is capable of conveying a huge variety of moods, from gentle and wistful, to raucous and raging.

Kevin McKenzie + Subie Coleman

Beguilingly rich and soulful vocals and guitar.

Grove Academy Latin Ensemble

Young top Scottish musicians play a set of classic jazz tunes from Miles Davis to Jaco Pastorius & Stevie Wonder: All Blues, Mercy,Mercy, Mercy, Strasbourg/St.Denis, The Chicken, Isn't she Lovely & many more!
