Beth Nielsen Chapman and March Treats

March has been a very busy month for us with some great shows by Beth Nielsen Chapman, Caroline Spence, The Handsome Family and Jason Ringenberg. Thanks to all came out and supported the shows. Beth Nielsen Chapman pictured played our biggest ever Glasgow show in The City Halls on Tuesday the 6th March.




Jill Jackson SOLD OUT.

Jill Jackson’s Album Launch for, “Are We There Yet” in Saint Luke’s on the 18th May is now totally sold out. Apologies to those of you who couldn’t get a ticket.

Produced by Boo Hewerdine (Eddie Reader, Emily Barker), Are We There Yet? combines innovative, playful arrangements that would not sound out of place in Lindy Hop, Harlem or the heart of the deep South. With an unabashed embrace of gleeful, melodic choruses delivered in Jill’s unmistakeable warm and heart-wrenching voice.

Toy Tin Solider will open up the show which is sure to be a special occasion for all involved.



Aidan O’Rourke & Kit Downes

A new duo that brings together two of the UK’s foremost folk and jazz artists, a sparse and emotive exploration of contemporary folk music formed by multi award winning Scottish fiddler/composer Aidan O’Rourke (Lau / Kan / Blazin Fiddles) and Mercury Music Prize nominated, BBC Jazz Award Winner harmonium and piano player, Kit Downes (ECM Records).

“Few contemporary musicians in any category can match either his artistic ambitions or his achievements in bringing them to fruition” (The Scotsman on Aidan O’Rourke)

“Downes makes – difficult music sound natural – even inevitable” (The Guardian on Kit Downes)
