Fat-Suit / Werkha (Full Live Band)

Scotland’s own mighty crossover juggernaut, effortlessly assimilate influences from Jazz, Fusion, House, Brass-Rock and Scottish Folk music to create a vibrant new musical vocabulary. With a line up of guitars, violins, keyboards, horns, bass, drums and percussion, they play stunning original compositions blending various genres that create a fresh infectious sound. Compared to Snarky Puppy, Vulfpeck and GoGoPenguin, they have played summer festivals across Europe delivering their “sun bright, pulsating blast of energy” (The Herald).

Glaswegian producer Tom A. Leah, A.K.A. Werkha, makes his Festival debut with outstanding vocalist Byrony Jarman-Pinto, keyboardist Fergus McCreadie and drummer Graham Costello. This underground sensation, heavily supported by Gilles Peterson,  presents an infectious fusion of Afro-beat, bass, house, jazz, funk and soul.
