CANCELLED: Edinburgh International Festival: Connan Mockasin

Connan Mockasin

This event has been cancelled due to unforeseen scheduling issues.

The Kiwi multi-instrumentalist psych-popper’s Bostyn ’n Dobsynproject comes to Leith Theatre.

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’. He has toured the world with artists like Charlotte Gainsbourg and Radiohead, and has collaborated with James Blake and MGMT, establishing a reputation as a truly original artist. He now brings his concept project Bostyn ’n Dobsyn project to Leith Theatre. Based on comics and short films Mockasin made as a young boy, Bostyn ’n Dobsyn is about a music teacher, Bostyn, his student Dobsyn, and features music by Bostyn's band (with three other music teachers) called Jassbusters.

Doors open 7.00pm

This concert will begin at 8.00pm with no support act
