Edinburgh Fringe 2022

Scary Biscuits Promotions is delighted to present a diverse showcase of some of the best Scottish music talent for Edinburgh Fringe 2022, at the Pleasance music hub at EICC (Venue 150), in the cabaret style Lammermuir Theatre, and the Lomond Theatre.

A genre busting bunch of tunes, songs and performers: award winning singer songwriters, folk, rootsy blues rock, insurgent country, funky Afrobeats, americana and a hint of mariachi.

Dive into a world of music and stories with a diverse group of performers, with a wide range of ages and experience, including two female fronted bands. Be transported for a short while into a world of Scottish folk, a backstreet rock joint with a hint of Memphis, a west African Friday night party, or a New Mexico cantina with a whiff of tequila and desert dust.
