Support St Margaret’s House resident musicians – The Jennifer Ewan Band – by going to see their show at the Jazz bar this fringe. The show starts at 5:30pm and is on the 3rd, 9th, 14th, 16th, 21st and 24th of August.
The Jennifer Ewan Band presents an exhilarating melting pot of heartfelt original songs and old-time Louisiana Creole and Cajun dance classics. As well as performing beautiful new Scottish pop, this upcoming songwriter and her bayou band demonstrate an easy familiarity with the older dance music of the swamps of rural French Louisiana – featuring Cajun blues licks from accordionist drummer Kim Tebble and swamp-pop grooves from Ian “Stretch” McFadyen on electric bass. Live Cajun band and fabulous Cajun food! ‘Just brilliant – music of the highest quality – a Scottish rising star’ (Janice Forsyth, BBC Radio Scotland).
