Graeme Mearns: Acoustic Swing
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Ice cool classics and red hot originals from guitar-slinging troubadour and Jazz Bar resident, Graeme Mearns. Jazz legend Don Menza once described it as 'a wonderful set' and it's not hard to see why. With echoes of Django Reinhardt and Richard Thompson, the inimitable singer and guitarist reinvents 20th century masterworks and introduces some 21st-century future-hits of his own. New life to 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).
