The Edinburgh Blues Club is a Social Enterprise established in January 2014 to harness popular support for regular blues events in Edinburgh. The club provide a monthly blues event, featuring touring blues acts from the UK and beyond, with support from the finest local blues artists. We have a choice of venues and a core membership who pay a regular payment for entry to all our events at a discount to individual ticket sales. The Edinburgh Blues Club features a diverse range of styles with a strong blues influence with varying elements of rock, soul, jazz, funk, country and folk. Every show is different! The club is now the biggest blues club in Scotland and the only one to host international acts.
While all our shows are on public sale through various outlets, membership of the Edinburgh Blues Club is available for £10 per month. This regular payment covers entry to all our hosted shows, providing a considerable saving for regular attendees. Members have an influence on future artists’ bookings and benefit from price reductions for additional tickets to both our shows and other events in the city on sale at all our shows.

Guitarist Aaron Moreland and harpist/vocalist Dustin Arbuckle have spent over a decade exploring the edges of American roots music. In the process, Moreland & Arbuckle have forged a relentless and haunting sound that merges Delta blues, folk, rock, traditional country, soul and numerous other echoes and murmurs from an infinitely layered musical narrative that spans more than a century. If you like the Black Keys, R.L. Burnside, Alabama Shakes or Little Walter, Moreland & Arbuckle are right up your alley.
Since the age of 15 Billy Walton has plied his craft in the Asbury Park/New Jersey shore music scene–most notably as the guitarist for Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes. With his guitar, Billy will shuffle off to Chicago… we’ll pick up the horns in Detroit and make our way down to New Orleans for some gumbo. Hurricane Billy will then whisk you up the coast and roll the dice in AC before landing in Asbury Park. Charlotte Marshall & The 45s are a sizzling seven-piece groove band brings a distinctive flavour of retro to the roots scene. Drawn from the musical traditions of New Orleans funk, Mississippi blues and 60s jazz, soul and R&B classics, Charlotte Marshall & The 45s won The Blues Magazine’s Future of the Blues competition in 2015.
