Songwriter and broadcaster Tom Robinson’s new album – his first in 20 years - is due out in October 2015 on PledgeMusic. The songs are as vibrant and edgy as any he's ever written and are the sound of a veteran craftsman who is drawing on his long fund of experience with a renewed energy and purpose.

LET’S TALK ABOUT LOUDNESS! Yelling is loud! That fashionable guy on the train blasting music into his ears? His headphones are loud! Loudness sounds good and feels good, and unfortunately, it’s ruining recorded music.

Following his successful show at The Queen’s Hall in May 2014, Clive John is back as The Man In Black. From his first hits in the 1950s right up to the 1990s American Recordings revival, the band plays a tribute to Cash with astounding accuracy capturing the essence of what it was like to be at a real Cash show.

This is no ordinary concert as you will be treated to a feast of sound and vision with the band closely replicating the unmistakable sound of Johnny Cash accompanied with a visual backdrop containing hundreds of evocative images and clips taken during his lifetime.

"Clive's resemblance is uncanny" (Rosanne Cash)

Without doubt, this will be the best feel good, rootin’ tootin’, twangy, barnstorming banjoed night out of the year.

Hilarious comedy hillbilly country rock band Hayseed Dixie are coming to Edinburgh so expect to hear their unique take on rock classics like You Shook Me All Night Long, Black Dog, Ace Of Spades and Fat Bottomed Girls alongside classics like Foggy Mountain Breakdown and Duellin’ Banjos.

“The Hayseed’s berserk hedonism is indeed refreshing!” (The Guardian)
“Hayseed Dixie highlights the worth of mountain music to all things rock: energy, dirt-punk rhythm, careening harmonies and the fundamental right... to raise hell come Saturday night.” (Uncut)
“Superlative musicians with a deep love and understanding of the dynamics of both modern rock and ancient hillbilly music” (The Times)

The Spirio is Steinway's first autonomously playing piano, and it sounds awesome.
Like magic, Steinway's new piano, the Spirio, records a pianist and plays the music back perfect.

The same show as last year? Well, not exactly. After a year on the road, it's become a humdinger of an evening. Enjoy two hours of Teutonic jolliness (including an interval) in magnificent splendour.

After more than a decade in Britain, the German Comedy Ambassador has ‘groan’ to like puns… though he still couldn't eat a whole one.  As Henning’s assimilation is not yet complete he hasn't lost his sense of Westphalian wonderment at the foibles of British society.

Why does everybody want to be owned by a house? What’s wrong with having the Euro? And why hold society and government responsible for personal underachievement? You’ve only got yourself to blame for not being born into a better social class. Expect a crash course in personal accountability and have a right old laugh at the same time! Wunderbar!
Henning’s recent TV and radio appearances include BBC1's Have I Got News For You, Channel 4's 8 Out Of 10 Cats, BBC2's QI and his own six part series Henning Knows Best on BBC Radio 2. He is also a team captain on BBC Radio 4's forthcoming series Britain Versus The World.

“A diplomatic master class” (The Scotsman)
“Brought the audience to its knees” (The Telegraph)
“Marvellous” (The Guardian)

Great venue which attracts a great selection of musicians and artists. There is usually a choice of church pews or cabaret seating for music events which makes for a great atmosphere. The venue is not massive so you're not watching some blobs in the distance. The sound quality whenever I've been has always been great. They also stock Williams' beers. What's not to like?

Great venue but don't turn up expecting to put your coat in the cloakroom. The gig I attended wasn't sold out, we arrived as the support act took the stage and were told the cloakroom was full! Ridiculous experience of lumping jackets around.

Last here to see Otis Taylor (tonight) and I don't think I've ever been here outside of the Jazz and Blues Festival. It's a compact venue with great acoustics. You have stalls in a U-shape surrounding a central floor area (used for tables, a dance floor or a mix), seating at the sides of the stage and an upper level. The bar area is a good size with additional seating upstairs and the staff have always been very helpful. Recommended.

Some of the best gigs of my life have been at The Queens Hall (Bon Iver included). It's big enough to hold a decent crowd and small enough to still feel like an intimate music venue.

Edinburgh Quartet Postcard from Paris Queen's Hall Monday 17 November 7.30pm. Tickets £15; Concessions £12; Students £5; Children Free Founded in 1960 The Edinburgh Quartet celebrates an extensive and exciting history as one of the UK's leading chamber ensembles, having performed frequently at major venues across Britain and toured extensively across Europe, the Far and Middle East, and North and South America. In addition to an eventful concert schedule the Edinburgh Quartet can be heard regularly on BBC radio amongst other stations. The Quartet supports new music and living contemporary composers, such as James MacMillan, Michael Tippett and Howard Blake, however in this concert, 'Postcard from Paris', we see they are equally talented in bringing traditional classics to life. Harking back to their origin, they demonstrate what a vast range they can create. The opening concert of their Queen's Hall season is entitled 'Postcard from Paris', as the schedule is loosely inspired by the growth in Paris' musical connections. A trio of Violinists Tristan Gurney, Gordon Bragg and Jessica Beeston and solo Cello player Mark Bailey open with Franz Joseph Haydn's String Quartet in C. Consisting of four movements, the first is light, jovial and playful, the second turns somber, slow but dramatic and the third is a Menuetto. The musicians performed this piece outstandingly. I lost myself in the music, however Haydn maintains to challenge the conventional and throws in the odd unpredicted surprise to keep us on our toes. After a brief interlude where Violinist, Tristan Gurney explained the Parisian connections behind the performance, he introduced Claude Debussy's String Quartet in G minor. Debussy lived in Paris and I truly felt I was immersed in the throngs of Parisian life. High in energy, the piece flows from slow meandering emotion to high-tension drama. Then spirals down to a still hum, a highly emotive journey. The quartet delicately pluck the strings creating a jumpy experimental dramatic energy in the second movement. The theatrical dynamic builds with elements of cine magic. This powerful charismatic piece flows, spins, glides and tingles until finally building into a frenzy of spectacular energy. The daring contrasting movements throughout the composition produces a rich story. Debussy's revolutionary String Quartet is considered by many to be one of the finest quartets ever written and it was undeniably my favourite of the evening. Following the interval the Quartet were joined by a solo Pianist Simon Callaghan, to perform Cesar Franck's Quintet for piano and strings in F minor. Franck was a Belgian composer who lived and worked in Paris. The Piano Quintet is one of Franck's most comprehensive instrumental compositions. The pianist opens the piece with dramatic vigour. The Quartet follow producing a powerful and wonderfully executed piece with tantalising pauses. The pianists hands effortlessly dance across the ivory keys. The emotionally charged piano Quintet evokes great sadness, elegant peacefulness then rises to a theatrical finale. The varied textures and skill of this composition generates remarkable stimulation. The wealth of talent here was outstanding and it is beautifully well synchronised, not one note is placed amiss. I find it wonderful to be taken to another place for a few hours, away from the rat race. A moment of escapism from every day and some self-indulgent 'me time'. To lose ones self in the music and the moment. There were times you felt there was only one instrument playing, which demonstrated how exceptionally skilled the ensemble is. The conversation between instruments took us on a musical journey of heart felt energy and drama.

Intimate live music venue with pew style seating around the sides and standing in front of the stage. View can be restricted but they've made this clear when booking whenever I've had restrictions. It's small enough to see the artists expressions anyway so big tick in my book! Reasonably well stocked bar for a venue.

I've seen some great gigs at this venue, it's unusual and they tend to get some very good bands on. As some people have mentioned, some seated views are restricted, but this is made clear when you're buying a ticket.

The Queens Hall is the best run venue in Edinburgh. Brilliant bar - superb friendly staff and plenty of them at the interval for a quick drink - fantastic range of Williams Beers. Dangerously delicious. The music acts are always sensational and the vibe is very relaxed. The seating is a bit old-school (like pews in a church) but that just adds to the unique experience. They were turned down for development funding by government arts funding body Creative Scotland (boo hiss). Come on, support the Queens Hall - get your ass down to a gig - it's the king of Edinburgh entertainment. PS it doesn't do food - just crisps and nuts :)
