A monthly concert series to celebrate and showcase the wealth of creativity and talent of Edinburgh’s young people. Each concert will give you a ‘dolly mixture’ music experience with each performance being distinctly different in style but uniform in quality and passion.
Join us this March, featuring:
- Fourplay Barbershop Quartet
Having performed at the inaugural St Cecilia’s Day Big Celebration 2017, the Fourplay Barbershop Quartet are looking forward to making a return to St Cecilia’s Hall to entertain the audience at ‘Three on a Thursday’ with their eclectic repertoire of songs, from many eras, covering various genres.
Fourplay bring the contemporary to the traditional with their fun and fabulous on-stage energy.
- Baron Salmon
Baron Salmon, now 19, has come a long way since picking up a guitar 6 years ago. From a fledgling Steve Earle wannabee, he is now in command of an impressive and complex approach to guitar playing that owes more to influences such as Nick Drake and Richard Thompson. Baron Salmon songs explore a broad range of themes, from pangs of growing up and friends staying true or moving on, to quirky anecdotes or tales that have captured his imagination, all constructed and delivered with a playful approach to words and rhyme.
This third EP has been recorded with a full band and strings and sees the baron working with Rod Jones (of Idlewild).
- Steve O’Neil & Friends
Steve is a German born multi-instrumentalist now living in Edinburgh. After a chance encounter in London that introduced him to busking and Irish music, he has been busking his way through Europe. Inspired by the various styles of music he discovered, he set out to merge his different influences together. This ‘Three on a Thursday’ he will be performing some of the traditional tunes he encountered along the way and pieces that particularly inspired him together with his friend, Ollie Rigg, on border pipes.
