Leith Festival Bruncheon featuring Dowally, The Jellyman’s Daughter & Jed Potts
Saturday 11th June 2016
11.30am - 2.30pm, free entry
An all duo americana line-up for our June Bruncheon put together by special guest programmer Emily Kelly, (The Jellyman’s Daughter) who will also be hitting the stage with musical partner Graham Coe! Come along for top-notch live music, great food, and excellent company!
Dowally’s unique and expressive sound has been described by Leith Folk Club as “grin-inducingly fun to watch and listen to”. Guitar, fiddle, accordion and cello weave and dance together to create gritty grooves, joyous melodies and soaring harmonies, with improvisational sections that speak from the soul. Dan Abrahams, Rachel Walker, Phil Alexander and Graham Coe use their individual backgrounds – a mix of jazz, klezmer, Scottish trad and classical music – to create “deeply tasteful arrangements and often heartbreaking melodies” and their thrillingly energetic set to a sold-out Fringe audience at the Acoustic Music Centre in August last year.
The Jellyman’s Daughter
The Jellyman’s Daughter are a unique duo from Edinburgh. Their interweaving vocal harmonies are complimented by an interesting mix of cello, mandolin and acoustic guitar. The Jellyman’s Daughter are a unique new duo from Edinburgh. One of the distinguishing features of The Jellyman’s Daughter is the innovative rhythmic style of cello playing providing a catchy percussive backbeat to some of their songs, contrasted by the intimacy of others.
