The Soundhouse Organisation returned to its spiritual home this autumn with its Back @ the Trav season, a series of ten live gigs showcasing the foremost talents in folk, jazz and Americana. Now audiences can experience the season in full with a special highlights video, recorded live at the performances in Traverse 1.
Featuring tracks from 12 different artists; ten headline acts plus two special guests, Back at the Trav Online is a snapshot of the eclectic quality of a typical Soundhouse season. Soundhouse is bringing some of the best folk, jazz and Americana musicians from Edinburgh, Scotland, and beyond, straight to your home.
Leveret, comprised of three of England’s finest folk musicians – Andy Cutting (button accordion), Sam Sweeney (fiddle) and Rob Harbron (concertina) deliver the contemporary sound of folk.
Hailing from Inverness-shire and Shetland, Salt House bring a celebration of song from three of Scotland’s foremost performers – Jenny Sturgeon (guitar, harmonium), Ewan MacPherson (guitar) and Lauren MacColl (fiddle, viola).
Two of Scotland’s most revered multi-instrumentalists, Mairearad Green (accordion, bagpipes) and Anna Massie (guitar, banjo, fiddle) captivate with their high energy performance and warm stage presence.
Twice BBC Radio 2 Folk Award Musician of the Year winner, Martin Simpson presents a master-class of finger style guitar playing in a remarkably intimate solo performance.
We also include additional tracks from two special guests; versatile multi- instrumentalist Hannah Read, and young emerging folk singer Evie Waddell.
From the world of Americana, the inimitable Cera Impala fills the Traverse with her whisky-honeyed voice and her self-defined “hillbilly noir”.
Originating from the high desert of Northern New Mexico, Cahalen Morrison presents his new album, Wealth of Sorrow.
One of brightest rising stars of the UK roots music scene, Edinburgh-born Adam Holmes showcases his masterful song writing and mellifluous, enchanting voice.
Two of Scotland’s most exciting emerging jazz musicians bring their bands to the Traverse. A recent graduate of Glasgow’s Conservatoire, young jazz trombonist Anoushka Nanguy presents her band Noushey 4tet; and saxophonist and Soundhouse Spotlight Sessions alumnus Rachel Duns débuts the newly formed Rachel Duns Quintet.
Also included is the launch of Modern Traditions, the brand new album from Brian Molley Quartet, an exhilarating blend of jazz and world music. Joining Brian on saxes and flute are Tom Gibbs (piano), Brodie Jarvie (double bass), and Stuart Brown (drums).
