BlueGrassmarket Festival

BlueGrassmarket Festival 22-24 Sept.22nd – 24th of September
Join us for a weekend celebrating all things Bluegrass, Country and Americana!

Run by Roots Events who are based in studio 3.04 [Johanna also works in the office], the BlueGrassmarket Festival will see a range of acts take over the Grassmarket for a weekend in September.  Tickets now on sale!

This year we’re setting the precedent of superb sound and high-calibre acts.

 Van Tastik opens the festival in Finnegan’s Wake, while The Jellyman’s Daughter and Cow Cow Boogie step up to our Grassmarket Square outdoor stage. St Margaret’s House resident band the Jennifer Ewan band, who currently have a series of gigs on at the fringe at the Montebar, will also be playing the outdoor stage on the Saturday.

Join us on Saturday in the Grassmarket Centre for an exquisitely-crafted evening with tweed-clad Banjo Lounge 4 in concert with the “Hillbilly Noir” sounds of Cera Impala & the New Prohibition and the foot-tapping country tunes of Edgehill.

For full line-up visit our website or follow us on Facebook or twitter.
