This is what happens when a singer songwriter from fife ends up working with a classically trained violin player from Yorkshire. Rantum Scantum perform extensively around Europe, specialising in original and re-worked traditional folk material.
Cat Named Jack
Cat Named Jack is a high-energy collective from Edinburgh which took root in 2013 debuting with a fully developed sound mixing soul, funk, and blues standards with inspired original numbers. Featuring the silver-toned sounds and harmonies of lead vocalists Claire McCarthy and Cara Mannix, the band consists of nine high-octave members. The rhythmic precision of drummer and all round percussionist Calum Macleod, combined with seasoned lead/rhythm guitarist Steve Moxham and punchy bassist Jim Strange, form a backline fully loaded with fusion points. Meanwhile, the lusty licks from Dougal Burnett (Sax), Paul Melone (Trumpet), and Alex Stewart (Trombone) in the horn section, coupled with the digital delights from Olivia Errey (Keys) provide sharp-edged grooves alongside deep layers of musical sediment.
