I’ve been interested in seeing Sylvan Esso for ages, nearly did while in the USA last year, but sunny Leith was too good to resist. Not my usual bag, but their unique quirkiness and enthusiasm is infectious. And lots of others are getting on board, hence their growing popularity resulting headlining Hidden Door festival at the lovely Leith Theatre, a memorable feature of my youth. Not feeling that well, I rolled in late and left early. Enough to see the packed house having a great time and see just how well Amelia and Nick brilliantly and charmingly work a big audience into a dancing party frenzy! I’m not a fan of so much programmed music though, however well manipulated live, so not really for me but definitely fun.
