The Old Town Rambler

We’re back, back, back!! Yes, this Thursday 21st September, Out of the Bedroom open mic night returns after our summer break. Thanks to everyone who played and attended the Legends night on 7th September. There may be more of those nights, with hundreds of performers over the years to choose from and some excellent talent emerging this year alone.

The venue is the wonderful Woodland Creatures on Leith Walk the night will run from 8pm to 11pm and entry is free for all. Come along and perform your original material or simply enjoy the great music. Sign up at 7:30pm for an open mic slot somewhere between 10 and 15 minutes per act, depending on the number of performers. Your host will be the fabulous Peach, also known as Small Feet Little Toes.

Feature act is The Old Town Rambler who is one of the exciting new acts to have emerged at OOTB this year. The ‘Rambler hails from North Berwick and describes his music as “roots, country, folk & blues fingerpicking and harmonica”. We think he’s one of the best traditional music players we’ve had in the open mic nights of late and we’re sure you will be delighted when you hear his music.

See you at Woodland Creatures this Thursday…

Baron SalmonThis Thursday, 27th July, it’s the last Out of the Bedroom… before our August break. Don’t worry we’ll be back in September!

We’re at Woodland Creatures on Leith Walk from 8pm to 11pm and entry is free for all. Come along and perform or simply enjoy the great music. Sign up at 7:30pm for an open mic slot somewhere between 10 and 15 minutes per act, depending on the number of performers. Original songs, of course.

Feature act is Baron Salmon, a young, exciting, East Lothian based, alt-folk singer songwriter. He has released two well-received EPs in the last year and is working on a third EP with a full band and Idlewild’s Rod Jones. Baron Salmon’s music is categorised by his rollicking fingerpicked guitar and his songwriting incorporates storytelling, protest, and introspection ranging from the uncomfortably honest to the impossibly vague. On stage he is a ball of energy that is outlandish for the music that he is performing, and makes him almost impossible to draw your eyes away from during a performance.

See you at Woodland Creatures this Thursday…

Ms. FiThanks to everyone who came along to Out of the Bedroom 650. It was another busy night and encouraging to have a mix of new acts, acts who have not been along in a while and those acts who are more regular.

This Thursday, 13th July, we are at Woodland Creatures on Leith Walk from 8pm to 11pm and entry is free for all. You are welcome to perform or simply enjoy the great music. Sign up at 7:30pm for an open mic slot for up to 15 minutes, bearing in mind that recently slots have been limited to 10 minutes per act. As usual, songs should be original.

Feature act for OOTB 651 is Ms. Fi & the Lost Head Band who produced a damn fine album Cafe del mundo in 2013. Edinburgh singer-songwriter Fiona J Thom is influenced by the songwriting traditions of the American Songbook, 60s psychedelia, Richard Thompson and rock and roll. Assembled from musicians from the acoustic music scene in Edinburgh and surrounding area, expect toe-tapping songs with wit, melody and edge.

See you at Woodland Creatures this Thursday…

Small Feet Little ToesAnother milestone – Out of the Bedroom 650! At 20 songs per show (a conservative estimate), that means roughly 13,000 songs have been played since we started in 2001! The last show on 15th June was jam-packed so we must be doing something right. 😀

This Thursday, 29th June, we are at Woodland Creatures on Leith Walk from 8pm to 11pm and entry is free for all. You are welcome to perform or simply enjoy the great music. Sign up at 7:30pm for an open mic slot for up to 15 minutes, bearing in mind that recently slots have been limited to 10 minutes per act. As usual, songs should be original.

Feature act for OOTB 650 is Small Feet, Little Toes (aka Peach) who was our wonderful host at the last show. A hugely endearing and mesmeric performer, the “feisty wee Edinburgh based songstress” belts out bi-polar folk lamenting the human condition, mammalian relationships and dirty sex talk. This is a rare full-set performance from Small Feet, Little Toes and not to be missed.

See you at Woodland Creatures this Thursday…

OOTB 645 – 20th April – Cera Impala

Posted 12/04/2017 By admin

Out Of The Bedroom’s third night at Woodland Creatures on Thursday 20th April is going to be a special one! The feature act is someone who very rarely plays intimate concerts in Edinburgh and we feel privileged to have her playing at OOTB this evening.

Songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Cera Impala is a banjo-, ukulele-, and guitar- wielding mama who oozes wild style. Her voice is unique yet timeless, with writing style just as magical. She creates songs that feel instantly familiar. Born in Flagstaff, Arizona she has made many places her home since ’94 when she left – from Portland, Oregon, to New York City, to all over California, Olympia, Washington – which explains the eclectic mix of musical styles in her songwriting. Cera performs with her hand-picked band, The New Prohibition and can also be found performing and recording with indie-rock band Dark Green Tree and singing with the queens of harmony and sass, The Bevvy Sisters.

There may be some special guests in the audience too… perhaps even a future / serving politician or two singing along! Expect some members of the audience to have something of a Green hue about them.

Slots as always are up for grabs if you fancy a bit of stage-time. Sign up from 7:30pm and we’ll get the first act on at 8pm. Original material. Our feature act Cera Impala will be on at 9pm.

Will be great to see you there…

OOTB 644 – 6th April – Aaron Wright

Posted 31/03/2017 By admin

Out Of The Bedroom got off to a good start at our new venue last time with thanks to those who turned up to perform, watch and listen. For this Thursday we have booked an amazing and well known headline act.

Edinburgh’s very own Aaron Wright is a rather talented and charismatic singer/songwriter whose music has a mix of alternative folk, country and pop amongst other influences. Aaron released his first EP ‘Behold A Pale Horse’ which features his popular song ‘Go On Yer Self’ and later followed by his self-titled debut album. More recently Aaron released his second album ‘Flying Machine’.

He’s had radio-play from the likes of Billy Sloan and Vic Galloway, is signed to a Glasgow-based record label and has played festivals all over the country. So it looks like we’re in for an incredible performance.

Here’s a link to Aaron’s music: soundcloud.com/aaron-wright-uk

Slots as always are up for grabs if you fancy a bit of stage-time. Sign up from 7:30pm and we’ll get the first act on at 8pm. Original material.

Will be great to see you there…
