Little Victories n°4
DOORS 7:30PM // £ Ticketed (Tickets here)
Little Victories is a boutique record label and promoter based in Edinburgh, Scotland. Since it all started in 2014 we’ve put on shows across the UK, from tiny cafes, to candlelit churches and cavernous theatres. After a stormingly good launch in January 2017, Little Victories is back for its fourth monthly music night, featuring another roster of incredible artists. Before we tell you about the truly star studded lineup for our fourth show, let us tell you about what we like, and what you’ll get from these shows. Tunes. That’s basically it. We like folk, we like pop, we like indie, we like rock. We like people who write songs, we like people who interpret songs. We like what we like, and we think you’ll like it too.
REBECCA LOEBE - Trudat Sound & Light present a new instalment of their evolving series of immersive audiovisual experiments. Each show is improvised and explores different textures, techniques and temperaments. Expect sculptural-rhythmic lighting, disconcerting sonic wonderlands and a deep, hypnotic club wasteland.
ROSEANNE REID - This Edinburgh-based artist has achieved a lot in her short career. On top of a nomination for the Radio 2 Folk Awards, Roseanne has received praise from legendary songwriter, Steve Earle, and appeared on Simon Mayo's Radio 2 show. Beautifully crafted and mature songs sung in a voice that defies her young age, have marked this singer/songwriter as one of Scotland's rising stars.
