JACK AND THE’ (Album launch), Miyagi, Angus Munro
Jack and the’ will launch their second album “MELODY CYCLE”, released on the 22nd february on Folkwit Records (UK), HOT PUMA Records (Belgium) and WeWant2Wecord (France). Recorded in Edinburgh, Dublin and Nancy (France) over two years, this orchestral “Melody Cycle” features no less than 18 musicians, including the 7-piece Apostrophe Ensemble, and sees the band going full circle between pop, chamber music and jazz. “A celebration of music so joyful that it is impossible to resist to its infectious melodies” (Popnews).
Well-known in Edinburgh for their late night sessions at the Jazz Bar, Miyagi and their 5-part harmonies provide a refreshing take on 60s music, from pop to folk via psychedelia. Their latest album might be called “Electrosaurus”, but “Miyagi are no dinosaurs – they are the future.” (Daily Record).
Following the release of his first EP “Shooting first” and his recent collaboration with Fat-Suit, Angus Munro and his four-octave vocal range have been wowing audiences from Glasgow to Vienna. “Each song is so beautifully written it’s hard to believe that just one man wrote it!” (Ravechild).
£7 at the door, first band on at 7.30pm
