Rachel Sermanni + Jamie Sutherland
Summerhall - Dissection Room
A live music event especially curated to fit with the themes of the festival. Folk-noir balladeer Rachel Sermanni’s work has been described as ‘Stately, Poetic, Rooted in the Traditional’ (Clash) and she cites Burns as an inspiration. But her work is also contemporary, with grungy guitars providing the foil for her rich and poetic lyrics on her most recent album. For Burns Unbroke, Sermanni brings a special one-off set featuring new instrumentation and many a nod to Burns.
“one of Britain’s most promising folk artists” «««« (Guardian) on Sermanni’s second album, Tied to the Moon
Jamie Sutherland is the singer and songwriter of Edinburgh’s own Broken Records. He’ll be sharing new material from his first solo album, due out later in 2018.
