Bruncheon! featuring Stems, Tom Beaver & The Jellyman’s Daughter
Saturday 13th February 2016
11.30am - 2.30pm free entry
An impressive musical line-up for our February Bruncheon put together by special guest programmer Diana de Cabarrus (Candythief, Stems), who will also be hitting the stage! Join us for top-notch live music, great food, and excellent company!
Stems is an Edinburgh contemporary folktronic ensemble (supergroup, if we’re honest…) featuring the diverse writing talents of Kirsten Adamson, Anne Aulmann and Diana de Cabarrus. Separately they’ve been tearing up the country and the new music radio stations with their respective originals bands, (Kirsten Adamson, Candythief and One Way Chemistry to name but some of them) ploughing all kinds of psych, country, post rock, indie, new wave and folky furrows. Now they’re joining forces to write and perform luscious three part harmony vocal material backed up by killer arrangements with stompin’ instrumentation that includes cello, guitar, bodhran, synth, mandolin, auto-harp. Get on board!www.stemsmelody.bandcamp.c
“The Jellyman’s Daughter sound like they’ve come down from the same cold mountain as The Civil Wars or Grammy-winning duo Robert Plant and Alison Krauss… [Graham] can make his instrument as percussive as a drum, as grounded as a bass or as sweet as a fiddle… when Kelly and Coe sing together, their harmonies squeeze the heart.” The Herald Scotland
Kelly and Coe met in 2012 and have paid their dues up from pub gigs via first EPs, open stage performances and initial success building into sustained momentum and growing audiences at home and abroad for their rich, textured, timeless sound and engaging live performance. Multi-instrumental creativity and exquisite vocals combine to create a characterful sound that saw their debut album launch sell out and gain outstanding reviews. https://
Tom Beaver is an up and coming songwriter and guitarist from Cupar, Fife, whose repertoire includes a mix of atypical covers and wry self penned songs. His unique take on common or uncommon themes from drinking misadventures to dog management reveals the innate strangeness in everyday life and makes for a rewarding listening experience! His performance at the Bruncheon will be as a duo with Lewis White.
His variety of musical influences include bands and artists such as Cracker, Sparklehorse, Camper Van Beethoven, J.J.Cale and Neil Young.
The cafe kitchen will accompany and complement the music with a delicious menu featuring kippers, morning rolls, mega-muffins and sweet treats galore!
