Light on the Shore - Edinburgh International Festival


Light on the Shore brings together major bands, artists and collectives to celebrate diversity, virtuosity and originality of Scottish popular music. 

Crossing genres - from folk to hip hop, electronica to rock - and spanning decades, Light on the Shore showcases some of those who have built Scottish music's international reputation as well as those who are remaking it for a new generation. Some of the country's most collaborative innovators including Neu! Reekie!, Hidden Door, Celtic Connections and Lau have been invited to shape nights around their own curiosities, while larger ensembles will examine seminal works in chamber and orchestral settings.
