Showcase Spotlight: Ded Rabbit

The final act playing our Electric Circus showcase this Friday are Edinburgh’s own Ded Rabbit. The four brothers, originally from Yorkshire, moved to the Highlands, and through the isolation and a developing love of music, started playing together ten years ago. We were extremely happy to have them take a break from recording their third EP with Rocket Science Studios to answer some of our questions and take the Wide challenge.

Wide Days Crowdfunder - Jannica Honey Prints

Posted by Michael Lambert.

Our Wide Days 2015 Crowdfunder campaign is off to a flying start with just over 60% of our target raised – massive thanks to everyone who’s pledged so far! However, we’ve a long way to go yet… 

We’ve got some amazing rewards available so I thought I’d write a wee blog to about some of my personal highlights - today I’ll focus on Jannica Honey’s print packages.  

For those who don’t know, Jannica is one of our favourite photographers. She’s been shooting our events since 2012, and has also taken press shots for many who have showcased at Wide Days.

Last year, Jannica hosted an exhibition in partnership with one of Edinburgh’s best record stores, VoxBox, where she presented some of the amazing photos of artists we have featured at our events. Check them out...

For £75, you can own one of these mounted, one-off A3 prints, along with a ticket to attend Wide Days. And each of the house gigs also comes with a print of the act. You can’t say fairer than that! 

To buy this package, just visit our Crowdfunder site and make your pledge, then head over to our website where you can choose the print you want.
