CHARITY, Shelter Scotland, is ending the Edinburgh Festival in style with an evening of indie and acoustica at an one-off Sunday Shindig.
The charity is set to benefit from the generosity of Fringe-goers attending the event at the Below Stairs Club.
Sets include acoustic folk rock from Rossco Galloway and alternative rock from Volitantes.
Edinburgh-based singer-songwriters, Hailey Beavis and Nina Nesbitt, will also put in performances.
A Funky Doodle Do club night will follow from midnight until the early hours, with big drums, bass and soaring horns.
There is no set entry fee to the event, but music fans will be asked to donate what they can afford, with all proceeds going to Shelter Scotland.
Graeme Brown, director of Shelter Scotland, says:
“This promises to be a great evening of live music and entertainment, and the perfect way to end the festival season. We would like to thank all of the talented musicians and organisers for their dedication and generosity.
“The donation from the Sunday Shindig will help Shelter Scotland to continue our vital work and provide services for everyone facing housing and homelessness difficulties.”
Sunday Shindig | Sunday 28 August | 8pm – midnight, followed by Funky Doodle Do midnight – 3am | No.12 Picardy Place, Edinburgh
