Daylight Music

What’s the perfect start to a Saturday? If your answer features live music, a cuppa and a bacon sandwich, then you should head to the new season of Daylight Music. The new season is particularly exciting, as curator Ben Eshmade explains:

“There are so many treats in store; from our first Uilleann pipe band (TEYR), to the return of some of our favourite artists – like Haiku Salut, Iskra String Quartet and The Pictish Trail. There are also old friends in new guises; The Real Tuesday Weld (Soviet sounds and Cold War Cabaret) and Emily Barker (Applewood Road) will both be performing their new projects. People love coming back to Daylight because it’s a place where artists can test out new ideas, and compositions, on an appreciative, enraptured audience.

As always, we seek out the scene’s rising stars, so don’t miss Holly Macve or Daudi Matsiko, who are both getting a lot of attention right now. Plus we’ll be celebrating the 200th Daylight Music with an extra special line-up that includes Ex-Easter Island Head; last time they played Daylight they got a standing ovation. Our themed Daylights have been so popular, so we’ve got even more of them this Autumn, including a Daylight dedicated to all things James Bond, a celebration of Lo Recordings (on their 20th Birthday year), plus not just one but two of our famed Christmas shows.”
