In the hotel’s long history we have witnessed many unscheduled, surprise performances. Somewhere along the way the idea to film them surfaced. First unofficial Artbreak Jam was recorded in 2010 and in next three years about 20 more short sessions took place. Today, Artbreak Jam is being rebooted and we’re looking forward to more live shows in the near future.
The latest jam took place on March 20, 2016 with our art residency alumni artist Hope London taking to a
stage hotel lobby.
Hope London (aka M Contraband Esq) started writing and performing songs after too many whisky-fueled jam sessions in pubs in rural Scotland where she moved 11 years ago, and recently recorded her first album ‘Aim Low’. She took part in this year hotel’s art residency program transforming room 1D into a story “If These Walls Could Talk”.
You can catch her playing at the Eden Festival in Scotland in June, at Rabbie’s Tavern (naturally).
