Caro Bridges - live downloadable mp3s!

Hello there everybody, how's it going?

Welcome to the first of my Edinburgh Unlimited blog posts. I'll be blogging about good music that comes my way. A lot of it will be from Edinburgh, but not all. Similarly this blog is for ANYONE in the WORLD who likes good music, so please tell all your friends to subscribe to this blog, if they like music. That should add up to a lot of people i'm thinking.

So why should you come back every week and check out the blog? Well because every week i'm going to be GIVING AWAY some free music, usually EXCLUSIVE to Edinburgh Unlimited (ie: unavailable anywhere else online or otherwise!). This week i've got two tracks for you by Caro Bridges, with Matt Norris on mandolin, recorded live at The Listening Room. Click here to download. I *strongly* recommend you check out Caro Bridges' officially released EP as well, it's very good.

Speaking of The Listening Room, it's an open mic night plus featured performer that happens every week at The Blue Blazer on Bread and Spittal Streets in Edinburgh. It's free, and it's on Sundays at 8pm. More information available here (click).

Now the other thing i wanted to mention to you is 5090, it's an online songwriting challenge. Anybody that wants to can challenge themselves to write up to (or more than!) 50 songs in 90 days, and the best part is there's a web hub where the participants give each other comments on their songs and co-write songs together etc etc. Honestly if you're a songwriter it is VERY fulfilling, and it's a great kick up the bum to get some songs written as well. I do know a lot of songwriters who would really benefit from this challenge, but sadly they are the ones most scared of actually getting involved. Overcome your inhibitions! More info about 5090 here (click)

Hmm, yes. Well, i'll be back next week with some more exclusive downloads, and more info for people who love music. Till then, take care and i'll see you out there in Musicland!

Hi everybody and welcome to Edinburgh Unlimited.

What is Edinburgh Unlimited? Well it's a live music showcase event, held on the second Wednesday of each month in Edinburgh, HOWEVER it is now something else as well.

Edinburgh Unlimited is now an online music blog, written by me, Calum Carlyle. I'll be sharing my thoughts about music, listing upcoming gig details, and posting links to music pages and exclusive downloads.We should be adding podcasts at some point as well.

And it's not limited to Edinburgh's music scene either. If you live anywhere in the world, subscribe and stay tuned for some interesting and exciting new music, and if you'd like your music to be featured on the blog, please get in touch with links, details, fan mail, whatever! It's:

See you out there in Musicland!
