Playing With The Past

  • 180 mins

An evening of new and old; music and film; the good and the great.

We have delved through the archives and scoured the local band scene to give you this evening of delights from our national archive, accompanied by fantastic music from three of Edinburgh’s highly acclaimed emerging bands (Eagleowl, Found, Meursault). The short films will include classics from some of Scotland’s better knowns and unknowns, but all seldom seen on the big screen. A rare treat indeed.
