We have yet another incredible headline act booked for you all this coming Saturday evening. A long-standing fixture of the Edinburgh songwriting scene and a well-known figure on the Scottish band circuit, Graeme Mearns is an established solo acoustic player and songwriter as well as an electric performer with both his own Legendary Graeme Mearns Band and high-paced punksters Joe Viterbo. Covering a wide range of styles from mellow jazz through abrasive alternative to full blown punk rock his highly original material showcases his inimitable guitar style and blackly humorous – not to mention foul-mouthed – poetic sensibilities. Albums range from the sombre acoustic tones of ‘So Far Away’ and the lo-fi eclecticism of ‘Real Life Cinderella’ to the rockier ‘Some Kind of Bliss’ and the simply weird ‘Into the Hollows’. Imagine Django Reinhardt getting drunk with the Stooges and you’re somewhere close.
