Today, cinch Presents Edinburgh Summer Sessions announce the addition of Simply Red to the incredible festival line-up that takes place between 7th and 14th August 2022 within the beautiful setting of Princes Street Gardens.

With over 50 million albums sold worldwide, 4 of which were no.1 in the UK and not to mention conquering the US charts…twice, Simply Red are the true champions of blue-eyed soul. 

Singer and songwriter Mick Hucknall was described by Q magazine as having “the most prodigious voice this side of Motown” and there is no denying the emotion he conveys in his captivating performances.
