ED2012 Music Review: Footstomping Traditional Scottish Music
On the Royal Mile at the heart of the festival is Whiski Bar, delivering a true taste of Scotland with its extensive whisky collection. Fitting in with ease is The Gorms, a three-man band who provide an eclectic mix of Scottish and Irish songs with a touch of modernity to suit the audience. The evening maintains intimacy with much charm as the band approaches individual tables and serenades them with heartfelt music. The Gorms radiate increasing enthusiasm, seeing more guests drawn in as the night goes on. A variety of bands will perform throughout the festival and the night provides the perfect opportunity to soak up Edinburgh’s distinctive mood with a whisky and some enchanting music.
WHISKI, 3 Aug-2 Sept, 10.00pm.
