Have your say

The son of Hollywood legend Clint Eastwood is bringing his band to this year’s Edinburgh Jazz and Blues Festival.

The Kyle Eastwood Band will play a mixture of “modern jazz, blending swing, bop and soulful funk” at the Festival Theatre next week.

The bass player has composed tracks for several of his father’s films.

Seventy acts are due to perform in the city from July 20-29.

Award-winning New Orleans band The Stooges will debut at the festival on its opening night with a mix of jazz, funk, hip-hop and RnB.
