Bruncheon featuring Candythief, Ewan Macintyre & Annie Humphreys
Saturday 9th January 2016
11.30am - 2.30pm, Free Entry
A cracking line-up for our January Bruncheon put together by special guest programmer Candythief who will also be hitting the stage! Come along this Saturday for top-notch live music, great food, and excellent company!
BBC Introducing artist Candythief, aka anglo-euro songwriter Diana de Cabarrus, first emerged in association with Fife micro label Fence records. Drawing on alternative, acoustic, psych pop, indie influences with a touch of chanson, the songs are melody-driven, occasionally theatrical, hopping between styles, and coloured by unusual song-structures. On record and live, Candythief is refreshingly distinctive and unusual, with live performances featuring a line up of cello, guitar, accordion, mandolin, bodhran and sometimes loops.

Ewan Macintyre with his unique blend of folk, soul and swing will be treating us to a few tracks from his brand new ep “You Probably Look Better Naked Anyway” which has reached #3 in the National Folk/Roots Charts of Canada. Also a chance to see him before he heads off to play Celtic Connections in Glasgow later this month. https://ewanmacintyre.bandcamp.com
Annie Humphreys is an Edinburgh-based singer who has gradually moved from a music-lover and enthusiastic gig goer to a performer, first challenging herself to sing in public, then to learn guitar, then to start writing her own original material. She’s active at jazz and blues jams and a regular participant at the blues nights at Whighams, and her vocal style reflects these influences. Her performance at the Bruncheon follows from a successful set at the Tinderbox Festival at the Roxy, and she’s proof that it’s never too late to make your dreams a reality.
The cafe kitchen will accompany and complement the music with a delicious menu featuring kippers, morning rolls, mega-muffins and sweet treats galore!
