John Rae’s The Troubles Featuring Brian Kellock
  • Edinburgh Fringe

The Troubles play 21st-century jazz and are New Zealands leading contemporary jazz group. Over a long residency in New Zealand's capital city Wellington, The Troubles developed and honed their quasi-anarchistic brand of meticulously composed music. From the coarse to the sublime, the emotive to the absurd, their music is inventive, passionate, honest, and wholly life affirming. Led by John Rae (a previous Herald Angel award winner at the Edinburgh Fringe) and Kiwi jazz legend Patrick Bleakley on acoustic bass, The Troubles are joined by Scotlands very own Brian Kellock on piano.
