The Music of
The Incredible
String Band

Very Cellular Songs
Thursday 17 August 2017
Edinburgh Playhouse

Whimsical, surreal, truly inspirational: psychedelic pioneers The Incredible String Band entranced listeners in the late 1960s and early 1970s with their visionary, dream-like songs. They remain one of the most influential groups to have come out of Scotland. 

For this very special concert paying homage to the group, former Incredible String Band manager and producer Joe Boyd invites guests to perform songs alongside collaborators from the group’s original recordings – including founder member Mike Heron and legendary bassist Danny Thompson. 

Guests include Justin Adams, Barbara Dickson, Green Gartside, Robyn Hitchcock, Janis Kelly, Greg Lawson, Sam Lee, Neill MacColl, David McGuinness, Karine Polwart, Alasdair Roberts, Georgia Seddon and Withered Hand (solo).

The advertised time is approximately when the performance will start. Doors will open at least 30 mins prior to this time.
