The Blueswater are a young award-winning 6-piece band from Edinburgh who tour internationally as well as around Scotland and the the UK. They are influenced by the sounds of gritty old-school rhythm and blues, blending the Chicago blues of Chess records and the dirtier droning grooves of Mississippi Hill Country blues into a unique style and sound. Guitar riffs and harmonica solos are built around a tight rhythm section to create raucous high-energy gigs.
In 2011, they premiered their show BLUES! At the Edinburgh Fringe to great acclaim, and in 2012 received a Mervyn Stutter Spirit of the Fringe Award. The show, a musical history of the blues genre, now regularly tours across the UK.
