Travelling North from Edinburgh, two unique & naturally live bands.

Liz Jones, having played the Blue Lamp Blues & Boogie Jamboree with Spider Mackenzie and Greg Izor, was asked by audience members of the night to return with her Edinburgh band Broken Windows and also Safehouse, stemming from multiple requests to hear more from "Vintage Axeman" John Bruce (Of the original Blues'N'Trouble) and his current band with a growing reputation of 'The' live gig in Edinburgh. "Steeped in influences from Robert Johnson to The Rolling Stones", Safehouse, fronted by Chris Peebles, have "a mercurial energy". Bruce also is in Broken Windows, a group of dynamic musical styles focusing on the new songs and easy spirit of performance by their players and Liz Jones, whose voice Spider Mackenzie describes as an untypical "mix of Janice Joplin & Norah Jones". Their reputation grows for storming live performances they self describe as 'peaceful debauchery'!.

Long time admired and acclaimed blues player Al Brown will be joining both bands, making this night very special and a very real one off. "Al Brown is arguably the finest blues guitarist in Scotland, if not the UK, at the moment" and all who appreciate authentic blues will acknowledge his natural style and magic touch on the electric guitar.
