The Blueswater are an award-winning act from Edinburgh who regularly perform across Scotland and the UK. The band brings in the sounds of gritty old-school rhythm and blues, drawing inspiration specifically from the Chicago blues style of Chess records, building guitar riffs and harmonica solos around a tight rhythm section.
In 2011, they premiered their show BLUES! At the Edinburgh Fringe to great acclaim, and in 2012 received a Mervyn Stutter Spirit of the Fringe Award. THe show now regularly tours across the UK. Festival gigs include playing at the 2013 and 2014 Kelburn Garden Party, the Dundee Blues Bonanza, the Islay Feis Ile Festival, and Doune the Rabbit Hole.
They also have supported New Orleans’ Hot 8 Brass Band, and are the house band for the Edinburgh Fringe’s infamous comedy night, Late n’ Live.
