Pressure Valve – Leith Music Showcase


Leith Theate


Backstage Theatre


Wed 31 May 21:00

Pressure Valve is here to support the grassroots of the music scene creating an environment that welcomes all levels of ability and all ages and aims to provide a supportive family like atmosphere while playing its part in helping put Edinburgh on the map as a fantastic city to come to for live music.

Our events are primarily showcase events giving acts a bit longer to perform as although open mics are great fun sometimes the acts want to play longer, we provide that platform. We are also happy to provide shorter slots at the musicians request so if your maybe just starting out and want to play one or two songs we will also provide you a platform to grow and develop at our sessions.

Line up

Lewis McLaughlin is a singer based in Leith. Playing a range of styles from rock to alternative on the Tenor guitar, joined by his brother Euan on electric.

International touring musician Aaron Dennington has multiple main stage festival slots under his belt.

Violent Mood Swings offers Blues with a twist – expect to be compelled to get your boogie on and strut you’re stuff on the dance floor.

With well over 3000 gigs notched up, Ian James Macfarlane is no stranger in how to work a crowd. Everyone will be grinning like a kid at Christmas.

A highly versatile artist, Nick Splinter brings you a fine mix of original songs and covers which blend in Folk, Blues, Americana, Punk and good ol’ Rock and Roll.

Rising starlet CC Bloom will be soothing our minds in-between acts with her fine mix of angelic vocals and chilled out guitar.
