The music will be a fantastic mix of rock, jazz, blues, soul, tamla and Afrobeats; anyone attending is sure of a good time, and will also be helping to support a great cause (more details at the Just Giving page).
Starting at 6.30pm and running for four hours, the lineup includes Scotland’s “godfather of soul” Tam White and the Usual Suspects; former Bay City Roller Nobby Clark; Liz MacEwan and her new band Blind Lemon; and the legendary Shorty Rodgers, a Liverpool rocker who’s played with all the greats at The Cavern.
Samba Sene & Diwan will be creating a heady mix of Afrobeat and ska tunes, and 8-piece band Soulussion will be treating audiences to their Tamla Motown sound. And Safehouse and Davy Sloan & The Rattlers will get the Queen’s Hall jumping to their hard-rocking blues and rockabilly numbers.
This looks like a great line-up not to be missed and the fact that every band and artist involved have waived their normal fees to make sure all the money goes to the Haiti victims makes it even more special.
Edinburgh Bands Together for Haiti is at the Queen’s Hall on Sunday 7th March, 6.30pm-10.30pm.
Tickets cost £10.00 (£15.00 for table seats) and are on sale now at the Queen’s Hall box office (0131-668-2019) and online at www.thequeenshall.net.
Don’t forget even if you can’t attend, you can still donate to the cause, at the event’s Just Giving page.
