Just Announced :Richmond Fontaine side project
Our 10th Anniversary year is going from strength to strength. The Delines, a side project of Americana favourites Richmond Fontaine, will play Oran Mor as part of the Glasgow West End Festival on Friday, June 20th.

Headed by vocalist, Amy Boone, the band’s debut album Colfax comes out in April, with all songs written by RF frontman and now successful author, Willy Vlautin. He loves Amy’s voice so much he spent a year writing songs for her to record.  The Delines line-up is certainly handy as it features Jenny Conlee (The Decemberists) on keyboards, as well as fellow Portlanders drummer, Sean Oldham (RF), Vlautin himself and, on pedal steel, Tucker Jackson (Minus 5).

Just Announced:  Zoe Muth & The Lost High Rollers.
We are delighted to announce a show in October for Zoe and her band. Zoe is a real special talent, and you can see her perform at The CCA on Friday 31st October.
