Playtime are a musicians collective started in 2014 by Martin Kershaw and Graeme Stephen, the core group also features Mario Caribé and Tom Bancroft.

For nearly 6 years we were a bi-weekly music event at The Outhouse, Edinburgh, featuring the very best of the vibrant Scottish jazz and music scenes. Then COVID19 has drove us online in 2020 and we started live-streaming and improvising online. Then we went back to the Outhouse and now we are going to start live-streaming again from the Outhouse - just for the hell of it.


If we are live you will find the livestream at: on or via our Youtube channel at
