What we're about

This is a group for anyone who doesn't drink alcohol, for whatever reason.

Maybe you're bored with sitting at home while your friends go out drinking? Perhaps you're fed-up with socialising with people who drink? Has stopping drinking left you with some time on your hands?

This is a welcoming and inclusive group where you can take part in lots of activities, have some fun and hopefully make some friends along the way!

Scottish Jazz - Paul Towndrow Organ Trio & Matt Carmichael Quartet

PLEASE PURCHASE A TICKET BEFORE YOU RSVP (£7.50/£5): https://www.edinburghjazzfestival.com/autumn/artists/paul-towndrow-organ-trio-matt-carmichael-quartet.html Join us for this double bill, which is part of the Edinburgh Jazz & Blues Festival Scottish Jazz Weekend: Paul Towndrow Organ Trio: Paul Towndrow (saxophone), Pete Johnstone (organ), Alan Cosker (drums). Paul Towndrow’s alto saxophone playing absorbs the entire tradition from Johnny Hodges to Charlie Parker; Ornette Coleman to David Sanborn, and distils it into a contemporary expression that beguiles and bewitches with a blend of power and passion. He’s a modern master on our scene. Matt Carmichael Quartet: Matt Carmichael (tenor saxophone), Fergus McCreadie (piano), Ali Watson (double bass), Tom Potter (drums). This astonishing young tenor saxophonist, Carmichael, is still studying at RCS, but already a major force in jazz. His Quartet play atmospheric, and often very beautiful melodic tunes with a keen grasp of Jazz and Scottish tradition.
