To the kitsch, though comfortable surroundings of the Royal Mile's Crowne Plaza underground bar come these two guitarists and their jazz/Latin guitar styles. Both musicians have around 20 years of live performance under their belts, and it shows in their highly-skilled, complex style.

Affable, unpretentious and unafraid, for instance, of openly using some old underpants to wipe the sweat from their hyperactive strumming hands. If you're into jazz/blues guitar, or are yearning for a bit of soothing respite from the stress of the High Street, come on down to see them, a pair who are passionate about, and committed to their craft.
