Lewis Capaldi Joins Band For Song On Stage At Edinburgh Pub

Lewis Capaldi Joins Band For Song On Stage At Edinburgh Pub

Lewis Capaldi gave visitors to a particular pub in Edinburgh something of a surprise treat when he clambered up on the stage to join in after a band started playing one of his hits.

The band playing that evening was The Jordan Murray Band and they managed to grab a new member for a short while when - after a bit of egging on from his mates and the rest of the crowd - Lewis climbed up on stage to join them.

Putting his arm around the group's regular singer - the eponymous Jordan Murray - he belted his way through the song accompanied on the guitar and piano.

Jordan and his bandmate and girlfriend, Hannah Cockburn, couldn't believe their luck and - by the looks of it - neither could the crowd at the pub.

Afterwards, Jordan told LADbible: "When we arrived for our gig Lewis was in drinking with his friends. We played around 40 minutes of our set and decided to play a cover of his song 'Somebody You Loved'.

"As soon as we started his mates were cheering him on and to everyone's surprise in the bar he appeared at the front of stage and took some photos with fans.

"I then asked him if he'd like to join us on stage and he did. He sang away and got the crowd to sing along and then finished up and took some more pictures with fans. Totally out the blue and nothing was planned.

"Right place right time."

You're not wrong there, Jordan mate.

He continued: "Myself and Hannah are big fans of Lewis so it was a great opportunity and experience to have and it's a moment we'll never forget. He's a top lad and very humble."

Suffice to say, there are worse things that could happen to you as an aspiring musician than to have one of the hottest properties in pop music join you on stage for a track.

Even if Noel Gallagher isn't that keen on him.

The pub in question, Cold Town House, also commented: "It was a great surprise to have Lewis Capaldi join us ‪on Saturday night. He was in having a few drinks and enjoying the music with his mates when the band played one of his songs and asked him if he'd like to join them on stage, which he did."

"Just like the rest of Scotland, we're big fans of Lewis so it was an amazing experience! A huge thanks to Lewis for an unforgettable Cold Town House party and we hope to see him again soon."

Weirdly, Lewis has a bit of form for this. Before his recent performance at BBC Radio One's Big Weekend in Middlesbrough, he showed up to serve pasties to customers in a Greggs near to the venue.

He then treated fans to a couple of songs and took a few pictures. At least if the music bubble ever bursts, he'll have something to fall back on.

Everyone always needs pasties.
