Graeme Mearns: Acoustic Swing
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Ice-cool classics and red-hot originals " not to mention a certain roguish charm (Herald) from Scotland's native guitar-slinging troubadour. With echoes of Django Reinhardt and Richard Thompson, the inimitable singer/guitarists show " electrifying **** (ThreeWeeks) " reinvents 20th century masterworks and introduces a few 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 afternoon/early evening set. Superb **** (Skinny).
