Live Review: Tinderbox Orchestra @ The Hidden Door Festival, Edinburgh (04/06/17)

Tinderbox Orchestra brought the Hidden Door Festival to a close with a phenomenal performance. The grass-roots collective consisting of a wide range of ambitious, creative young musicians, artists, youth workers, community activists and volunteers, launched their debut self-titled album with the performance on 4th June. This year’s festival took place in an exceptionally atmospheric building; the old Leith theatre had not been used for 28 years prior to this but the team managed to carry out a DIY-style renovation, providing an impressive, large and enticing space. First song, ‘Aftermath’, the first piece written by one of the orchestra’s own members, cellist Graham Coe, skilfully combined Arabic melody with Western harmony, joined by a rather large sprinkling of heavy rock that came across in perfect measure on the night.
