EDINBURGH FESTIVAL OPENING PARTY

 

 Utah Saints

 

Utah Saints are made up of Tim Utah and Jez Willis. Together they have been making music, DJing and playing gigs around the globe since the birth of house music. In that time the world renowned duo have released 9 Top 40 UK hits, 4 of which hit the Top 10. They have sold over 2 million records worldwide, sampled a huge range of artists from Annie Lennox to Slayer and have supported U2 on a UK and European tour

The much loved pair have set up and promoted award winning and legendary club nights, SugarBeatClub, in Leeds, London and Edinburgh and have been regulars on radio stations such as BBC Radio 1, XFM, Galaxy, Kiss and Ministry of Sound. Tied to no sound in particular, the Utah Saints have always hovered between genres and between commercial success and underground kudos. 20 years later, they are still as in demand as ever.

Of course, Utah Saints are first and foremost fierce and dexterous DJs who have played over 1000 gigs at every club and festival going alongside the likes of Annie Mac, Justice, Erol Alkan and many more. In their time the Saints have remixed everyone from Bring Me The Horizon to The Stone Roses to Girls Aloud to DJ Fresh. As A&Rs this pair have steered their SugarBeatClub label through some fantastic releases, have released a Beatport chart topping compilation, Electronic Bass Music and will continue to serve up the goods as long as they live.

Red Pine Timber CompanyRed Pine Timber Co.

Onstage: 7:00pm

Formed in the summer of 2009, Red Pine Timber Co. originally set out as a ‘loose’ collective of musicians led by Singer/Songwriter and Guitarist Gavin Munro.

After a successful stream of Scottish dates, Red Pine Timber Co. has settled into a more fixed line-up, consisting of David Shaw on Upright and Electric Bass, Ivan Sveda on Drums, Dave MacFarlane on Fiddle, Katie Whittaker Vocals, Felix the SaxCat on Saxophone, Chris Marshall on Trombone and Harmonica, Aaron Brake on Guitar, Mandolin and Pedal Steel (now Album only)

Playing an eclectic mix of Americana and Country influenced originals, Red Pine Timber Co. have developed their unique sound within this genre mostly due to the inclusion of the Saxophone and Trombone within the instrumentation (yes...amazingly this mix does work). Coupled with the somewhat contrasting musical backgrounds and talents of each band member, the combination blends tastefully in supporting songwriter Munro.

Red Pine Timber Company released their critically acclaimed début album Different Lonesome on 10th March 2014, and are currently in the studio recording album number 2!
