OOTB 660 – Thursday 11th January – Roelle Blue

Welcome back to Out of the Bedroom! Yes, it’s 2018, it’s a brand new year and we’re back at Woodland Creatures for more open mic entertainment in our 660th open mic night. Thanks to everyone who came along to play or support the musicians at OOTB in 2017. We hope you enjoyed yourself as much as we did and we’re sure you’ll find plenty to enjoy this year.

Usual rules apply… first open slot is 8pm and we finish up at 11pm. Entry is free for all whether you are a performer of original material or a music lover. If you want to play, sign up starts at 7:30pm for an open mic slot, with 10-15 minutes per act depending on the number of performers.

Roelle BlueFeature act is Roelle Blue. Roelle Blue is the stage name for Edinburgh-based Kirsty Heggie, who is gaining a reputation as an exceptional musician. Her skill and style allow her to be classed as a folk singer, while her diversity invites hints of gothic, celtic, psychedelic, rap, punk and blues. With original material that appeals to a wide audience and also the more obscure art fans, Roelle also has a unique take on classic hits and old folk songs, she never fails to be heard and distinguished.

Roelle’s is a voice that is strong and striking, unlikely to be forgotten, and is a classical guitarist but may use electric guitar. Having made her way from busking on streets, to travelling as a minstrel has led to a 2017 performance at Celtic Connections in Glasgow where judges asserted that she is a “highly recommended” artist. Roelle has acquired a comfort with the stage and to listeners that reflects her life experience and intense relationship with word and music. Influences range from Bob Dylan to Bjork. “Somewhere in between Joni Mitchell and Irvine Welsh.”

See you at Woodland Creatures this Thursday…
