Celtic Connections // John Edge & The Kings of Nowhere
John Edge & The Kings of Nowhere celebrate the release of their debut album with a special Celtic Connections show. The band provide an energetic live show with songs about love, truth, death, and the miraculous fragility of life. The Edinburgh and Glasgow based group are genre defying, yet perhaps best described as euphoric folk-rock. The band carry an abundance of raw power, melodious songs, huge dynamics, and all is fused together and driven by Edge’s enchanting lyrics and totality on stage. Everything they have to offer is poured out in their performance; passion is abundantly clear. Each of the members hail from the Scottish Highlands and the dramatic landscape of their upbringing can be heard in their songs.
CLASH ~ “Edge is a supple, entrancing songwriter. An artist of real power… Easy on the ear yet intensely emotional.”
CELTIC CONNECTIONS ~ ”John Edge & The Kings of Nowhere are increasingly gathering admirers for Edge’s winning delivery and the band’s crisp, atmospheric enhancement of his attractively moody songs”
GINGER are a 4-piece band bringing uplifting rock tracks, four part harmonies, funk and soul. They take inspiration from the likes of Weezer, Bon Iver, and The Rolling Stones.
