About this Act

Edinburgh based bluegrass band The Banjo Lounge 4 do innovative funky bluegrass and swing mash-up versions of songs to suit all ages from Louis Prima's 'Just a Gigolo', Nirvana's 'Smells Like Teen Spirit', Michael Jackson's 'Dont Stop Til You Get Enough' to Beyonce's 'Crazy in Love' and Dizzee Rascal / Calvin Harris's 'Dance Wiv Me'. Also thrown in there are a bunch of other classics they have tinkered with to make their own including New Order's 'Blue Monday', a blistering version of Blur's 'Song 2' and Punjabi MC's Knightrider re-mix of 'Mundian to Bach Ke'.

With a lineup of banjo, guitar, double bass, drums and 3 part harmonies, over the last few years private clients and festival-goers alike have been dancing to their brand new brand of acoustic mash-ups!
