Deborah Arnott and Clare-Louise Neilson, aka banjo duo Blueflint, play haunting bluegrass shot though with a yearning sadness and soothing harmonies. Influenced by old-time Americana they have added a full backing band (including Roddy Neilson, Ian Stoddard, Craig McKinney and Joey Sanderson) that play with them from time to time giving their music even more depth. Catch them here supporting the Southern Tenant Folk Union.

Leith Ex-servicemen’s Club, Edinburgh, Thu 18 Oct.

Southern Tenant Folk Union and Blueflint

An excellent mash-up of country, folk, bluegrass and anarchy from the London-based sextet making a welcome return to Edinburgh, with local duelling banjo-ists in support.
