Nicole Smit/Grainne Duffy Band 

Two young blues players who are taking the world by storm, come together for the first time showcasing their musical prowess.

Singer Nicole Smit has wowed Edinburgh audiences with her uplifting and inspirational performances drenched in the history of the blues. Grainne Duffy blends blues soul, rock and Celtic influences into emotionally supercharged performances. Together they present a set combining original material (some commissioned especially for EJBF 2021) from both artists with fresh covers, backed by some of Edinburgh's up and coming musicians.

A world premiere for EJBF | Supported by Scottish Jazz EXPO
