Blueswater Presents at the 2019 Edinburgh Fringe Festival
We are thrilled to be back once again to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. This year we present a streamlined program showcasing the very best in all things rhythm and blues. Due to popular demand, we’ve extended our critically acclaimed flagship show, Blues!, to share even more of the songs you know and love. We strongly believe we are putting on the highest quality programming of rhythm and blues music during the festival, and with 8 years and more than 700 fringe shows in the bag already, we are proud to defend our self-awarded title of hardest working band at the Edinburgh Fringe.
Not only can you catch us in Blues! and Queens of the Blues, but we are also bringing you 5 nights of party gigs where you can boogie from midnight ’till late at the world-famous Jazz Bar. Here’s the list (including ticket links) of all the excellent shows we are putting on this August:
Blues!: 100 years of blues, 65 minutes to play it. Our flagship production returns for its 9th consecutive year, this time with a brand new extended song list, featuring The Blueswater in an expanded 11 piece line-up with brass, keys and more. Mervyn Stutter Spirit of the Fringe Award winner. ‘Blues-based edu-tainment’ (Stewart Lee).
Live at the Jazz Bar: High octane R ‘n’ B performed by The Blueswater in the raucous atmosphere of Edinburgh world-famous Jazz Bar.
Queens of the Blues: A celebration of the women who have shaped blues and popular music as we know it, featuring a 7-piece lineup of The Blueswater led by formidable singer Nicole Smit a.k.a. Nicole & The Backup Crew. This year the show is being presented in the stunning cellar venue, The Jazz Bar.
