Pictism hail from Edinburgh, Scotland, and perform as anything from a 2-piece to a full 7-piece ensemble, according to the occasion, with a setlist that includes traditional Scottish and Irish music, and contemporary covers with a Celtic twist... from Burns to Cash, with a few jigs and reels thrown in for good measure! The complete line-up includes male and female vocals, acoustic and electric guitars, bass, drums, fiddle, mandolin and tin whistle.
Traffic Jam are a mix of Scottish and Italian Fusion, with an inspirational and original sound. This four piece alternative blues rock band created from a mix
of seasoned musicians that have performed on stage with some of the most renowned artists across eras. Meeting at different points in time the band formed from mutual friends who shared a passion for creating music. Coming together in a very brief time they set out on a project to create and record an original EP. Within only three days the tracks were rehearsed and recorded and Traffic Jam was born.
Swamp River are an Edinburgh & London based Swamp Rock, Roots and Blues based band comprising road-tested veterans of the UK and international music scene, to appreciate the timeless music of John Fogerty and Creedence Clearwater Revival. Chris Hargrave (Vocals, Guitar) and Rod Kennard (Bass, Vocals) have been playing gigs in Norway since the 1980s. Sandy Tweeddale(Guitars, Vocals) and Rod are colleagues in Blues 'n' Trouble, and together have backed such artists as James Burton, Maggie Bell, and Otis Grand - and Willy has been their long time collaborator in a number of side projects. Now they unite to celebrate their mutual love of the extraordinary, and sometimes underappreciated, work of John Fogerty and Creedence Clearwater Revival
