The Magic Lantern is the moniker of singer-songwriter Jamie Doe, an artist blurring the boundaries between folk, jazz and contemporary music.

Born in Australia before moving to the UK at 12, The Magic Lantern has toured the UK, Europe and Australia alongside This Is The Kit, Sam Lee and Alabaster Deplume.

Performing with an ensemble drawn from London's thriving alternative jazz scene, The Magic Lantern comes to the Traverse to launch his joyous and devastating fifth album ‘To Everything A Season’, written and recorded in the months following his daughters birth and his fathers death six weeks later.

The Magic Lantern's live show captures a rich emotional immediacy through spirited improvisation, taught ensemble writing and Jamie’s arresting vocal lyricism to craft songs examining the limitless depth of the human experience.

Support from Finn Anderson, one of Scotland's most enchanting songwriters.

The Magic Lantern is part of the Traverse's £1 Ticket Project.

The Traverse Theatre is funded by Creative Scotland and The City of Edinburgh Council.
