Jessie Ware is set to make a one off appearance at the first instalment of Cutty Cargo.
A blended Scottish whisky, Cutty Sark is named in honour of that most musical of poets, Robert Burns. In keeping with The Bard's legacy, then, the brand have launched Cutty Cargo - a new series of events mixing bespoke cocktails and cutting edge music.
The first instalment comes to London's Brick Lane on September 12th, with Jessie Ware set to headline. One of the most acclaimed figures in British pop, Jessie Ware's Mercury nominated debut album has sparked lengthy spells of international touring.
However the Brixton girl knows that home is where the heart is, and has been tempted back to London for a one off performance at Cutty Cargo. Joining the 'Running' singer on the night will be Duke Dumont, providing a no doubt spectacular DJ set.
Elsewhere, The Shanty Theatre Group will perform while Meat Liquor will be on hand to unveil some of their famed meat sliders. Performing inside an enormous re-production of a wooden cargo crate, this looks set to be a spectacular way to launch these globe-spanning events.
Cutty Cargo returns to London on September 12th.
