Edinburgh Band To Perform Debut Album Live At The Fringe

Edinburgh, Tue 14 July, 2009

The Exile Band from Origin Scotland is to perform most of the tracks from its debut album live in a two-night special at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2009 entitled un|broken LIVE.

Recorded in January 2009 and recently released, the album features the unique sound of Origin's band and choir in a mix of styles from classical through to blues.

"I don't know of any band in the UK at the moment producing as varied a sound as this one" said Colin Peckham, Origin's artistic director. "The guys in the band are some of the most talented I have ever worked for, and the new album is something special."

Using the song writing and performance talents of Mark Calder, Rebecca Hardie and Steph McLeod, a selection of the twelve songs on the album will be performed in a Fringe show at venue 251 on West Rose Street on Fri 21st and Sat 22nd August at 7pm. Tickets (£6, £5 concessions) are available through the Fringe Box Office and at the door.

Along with the usual guitars, keyboards and drums, the band also uses a Hammond organ, percussion section, strings, brass and wind instruments. They use a small choir for backing vocals.
