As often happens at uber hip Summerhall, the gig starts somewhat later than billed, no doubt contributing to some first night nerves for Jamie Sutherland. Known locally as singer/ guitarist in indie folk band Broken Records and for his love of 1970s open-tuned guitars, tonight Sutherland presents for the first time mainly solo, with some of his latest self-penned numbers, with occasional unelaborated backing from Ian on keyboard, Robyn on violin and Anna on bass. A brave outing, Sutherland should also be congratulated for his informed choices, in his capacity as Music Programmer for Summerhall.
