CANCELLED: Edinburgh International Festival: Connan Mockasin

The Kiwi multi-instrumentalist psych-popper makes marvellously off-kilter music, blending styles and hypnotic grooves with oddball lyricism. His third studio album Jassbusters saw him backed by a full band for the first time, described by the Quietus as ‘fuller, groovier, twangier… a revelation’.

This event has been cancelled due to unforeseen scheduling issues.
