Edinburgh Fringe 2022

Blueswater Presents at the 2022 Edinburgh Fringe Festival – The 10th-Anniversary Special! 

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 – including our critically acclaimed flagship show, Blues! We strongly believe we are putting on the highest quality programming of rhythm and blues music during the festival, and with 9 years, more than 750 fringe shows and 20,000 attendees 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 at the world-famous Jazz Bar.  Here’s the list (including ticket links) of all the excellent shows we are putting on this August:
