This month’s special guest Bruncheon host Toby Mottershead will be hitting the stage alongside some of Edinburgh’s finest musical talent.

Inspired by the old-time blues, roots, ragtime and gospel of the pre-war era, Toby Mottershead earned his spurs playing with the award winning eight piece band The Black Diamond Express. His solo show on The Roots of The Blues is a gem of The Edinburgh International Festival – showcasing his obsession with artists such as Blind Willie McTell, Robert Johnson, Mississippi Fred McDowell and many more.

“His superb exhibition of early blues styles is a joy to behold.” **** Broadway Baby

“Toby Mottershead is the real deal.” Thomas Truax

“Impressing audiences with his passionate performances – this is definitely one to watch.” Thomas Compton – Edinburgh Guide
