There are fresh Scottish jazz sounds too from fast-rising trio Strata and the award-winning Fergus McCreadie Trio. US talent added to the bill includes saxophonist Melissa Aldana, fiery Chicagoan trumpeter Jaimie Branch and electronics man Damon Locks (both on the iconoclastic International Anthem label), while hyper-talented LA drummer Louis Cole’s barnstorming Big Band should be a humour-laden highlight. Acclaimed New York-based trumpeter Avishai Cohen also brings his heavy-hitting ECM-signed project, Big Vicious, to the festival. 

Further names include Tunisian oud maestro Dhafer Youssef; a new project from drummer Yussef Dayes and guitarist/singer Tom Misch; Michael Janisch Band; Quentin Collins Sextet; Neue Grafik Ensemble; Yasmin Lacy; Greentea Peng; guitarist Rob Luft; Harold Lopéz Nussa; Snowboy and the Latin Section; Brand New Heavies; Mamas Gun; Georgia Cécile; Kathrin Windfeld Sextet; Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio, zany US jazz-funk man Cory Wong and a Sunday night headline slot from iconic hip hop band The Roots.
