The group pay tribute to our favourite mod group, The Jam, playing us chart-toppers as well as taking us back through some of the band's earlier punk discography. A gig that will get everyone jumping, from old generations to new, that's certainly entertainment! The group will be there August 3rd, 10th, 15th and 24th. 2. Nick Harper - 58 Fordwych Road Starting off with some folk/acoustic music, Nick Harper is one of the most highly anticipated music acts of the Fringe Festival 2019. Son of English folk musician Roy Harper, Nick's soaring vocals promise to take us on a journey through 60s London. He impressed once before at the Fringe, playing back in 2016, where he was well received. The set will consist of notable tracks from acoustic legends and will take place at The Jazz Bar on Chamber Street from August 10th to 17th. If you are a lover of robust folk music or just want to come along, have a couple of cocktails and sing along to some classics, then Harper's 'Fordwych Road' set is for you.
