About Edinburgh International Festival: Karine Polwart’s Scottish Songbook

Following her acclaimed 2016 International Festival show Wind Resistance, and her contribution to the New European Songbook in 2017, Karine returns with a very different evening – a new band formed especially for the occasion, performing soundtrack of seminal Scottish pop songs from The Blue Nile, Deacon Blue, Chvrches and Annie Lennox to name but a few.

Performance times for this event are approximate and may be subject to change. Full details for this event will be announced on 2 May alongside the full line-up of artists performing as part of Light on The Shore with Edinburgh Gin Seaside.

Tickets go on sale from 4 May 2018.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Edinburgh International Festival: Karine Polwart’s Scottish Songbook are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
