From a family of celebrated jazz musicians, singer-songwriter Sophie Bancroft seamlessly blends her jazz influence with a broad but discerning swathe of contemporary folk styles, vibrantly showcased on her 2008 release Handwritten. One of the most inventive and distinctive artists to emerge from Scotland, she has drawn comparison to vocalists as classily diverse as Peggy Lee, Alison Krauss and Norah Jones. Sophie is joined by esteemed musicians, double bassist Tom Lyne, fiddler Amy Geddes and guitarist/percussionist Ross Mitson.

'Her performance, imbued with warmth and humour, was delightful.' (Herald) 'Gorgeous, original acoustic music.' (List)


PLEASE NOTE This event takes place in the Back Room at Acoustic Music Centre @ St Bride's Centre, Orwell Terrace, Edinburgh, EH11 2DZ.
