Acoustic Swing
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Ice-cool classics and red-hot originals from Scotland's native guitar-slinging troubadour. Echoes of Django Reinhardt and Richard Thompson as the inimitable singer/guitarist reinvents 20th century masterworks and introduces some 21st century future hits of his own, breathing new life into familiar material from the likes of Billie Holiday and Cole Porter via Tom Waits to Joey Ramone and beyond, in a mellow and intimate early-evening show. 'Superb' **** (Skinny). 'Electrifying' **** (ThreeWeeks).
