Hello. This week OOTB have booked a very popular Edinburgh singer/songwriter for your discerning ears. Darren Hendrie is a hard-working musician who not only has a solo career gigging around Edinburgh, but also fronts the alternative rock-driven “Darren Hendrie Band”. You can catch him hosting Bannermans open mic every fortnight and he released several studio recordings late last year on You Tube. So we are looking forward to an acoustic set of his own songs this Saturday evening.

Well well well, OOTB have reached another milestone in our thirteen and a half (approximately) year history. Our six-hundredth event this Saturday is going to be helped along by our booked headline act. Bobby Murdoch hosts the Wee Pub open mic located in Edinburgh’s Grassmarket with great success and growing public reputation. Bobby’s songs have an alternative acoustic rock flavour sung along with sweeping confident vocals. He usually down-tunes his guitar a tone which already sets the mood and feel of his music. Don’t miss out on a performance that’s original and entertaining.
Open slots are available as usual so that you can help us celebrate our 600th event. Sign up from 7:30pm and we’ll count up to 600 at 8pm for an evening of brilliant original acts.
Will be 599 times wrong not to see you there,

Hello. Winter is fading before our very eyes and OOTB have booked a special feature act for this Saturday to welcome in a new spring. Irish-born Native Oak is touring Britain with his distinctive brand of music and we’re delighted he has stopped by for another time at Edinburgh’s OOTB. His music is raw gutsy folk at heart, but has a laid-back ambient feel sung along with deep emotional vocals that take you on a personal journey. Witness this genre of music at its best cutting straight to the point with no unnecessary fluff needed, at the Kilderkin bar of course. You would be simply daft to miss out. Here’s a link to some of Native Oak’s music: nativeoak.bandcamp.com

Hello. This week’s featured act is a talented Irish-born young man who goes by the name of Brian Hughes, also known by the pseudonym “Screamin’ Whisper”. Brian moved to Edinburgh in 2013 at the age of seventeen and quickly emerged as a bright new talent to hit the city’s live music scene. He was also chosen to play with the Edinburgh Schools Rock Ensemble as his style has a confident rock and blues influence. He’s played on the OOTB stage several times and we are delighted to have Brian as our headline this Saturday. Come along and witness a musician with a promising career and whose records you’ll be buying in the near future.
Here’s a link to some of Brian’s music: soundcloud.com/screamin-whisper

Hello. Out Of The Bedroom have re-booked this Saturday’s headline act due to an unfortunate cancellation some weeks ago. Harry Harris is an incredibly talented songwriter and performer who will have your eyes and ears glued to him for the duration of his set. He is currently on a mammoth UK tour and it’s an absolute pleasure to welcome him to OOTB this weekend.
Since signing to Wild Sound Recordings in 2013, Harry has been building a reputation as one of the UK’s most original and formidable singer/songwriters. A ruthless guitar player with a voice that moves from the explosive to the intimate, he writes songs that grab you by the scruff of the neck and refuse to let go, with influences ranging from the great American songwriter Warren Zevon to bar-rock band The Hold Steady to Scottish folk singer Karine Polwart.
“I first met Harry Harris when he was a fresh, early teenage boy. He played us a song or two and impressed me, immediately, as a kid with focus and fearless dedication, both aiming at building songs. All these years later, I find the same focus and fearless dedication. This man can write and build songs and stories.” – Eric Taylor, Blue Ruby Music USA.

Sign up from 7:30pm if you fancy a performance slot and we’ll start the epic musical adventure at 8pm. Original material only and all that sort of thing ting-a-ling.
