The Tannahill Weavers!!

click to see a performance

Traditional Celtic music at its best! With fire-driven instrumentals, topical songs, haunting ballads and a good dose of humour! 

 

Born of a session in Paisley, Scotland, and named for the town's historic weaving industry and local poet laureate Robert Tannahill, the Tannahill Weavers have made an international name for their special brand of Celtic music, blending the beauty of traditional melodies with the power of modern rhythms.  As one of the world's premier traditional Celtic bands, their diverse repertoire spans the centuries with fire-driven instrumentals, topical songs, original ballads and lullabies, and humorous tales of life in Scotland.

 

As they celebrate the nomination of their 18th recording, Òrach (“Golden” in Gaelic) as album of the year, and themselves as band of the year, they are firmly established as one of the premier groups on the concert stage.  From reflective ballads to footstomping reels and jigs, the variety and range of the material they perform is matched only by their enthusiasm and lively Celtic spirits.

 

“The music may be pure old time Celtic, but the drive and enthusiasm are akin to straight ahead rock and roll.”  - Winnipeg Free Press

"An especially eloquent mixture of the old and the new."    - New York Times

He's  back!

Otis Gibbs is a Songwriter, storyteller, painter, photographer and planter of 7,176 trees! He once wrestled a bear, and lost. He has been described as “The best unknown songwriter in music today.” If you ask him, he’ll simply say he’s a Folk Singer. A modern day Woody Guthrie, his songs based in people experience and their struggles,put Gibbs in the company of Bob Dylan, The Clash, and Chuck Berry.

"Gibbs is a natural born storyteller with a wealth of words at his command and the precision knowledge on how to use them. His music is soft and gentle, washing over you like a fine rain. It leaves a personal and deep connection that Gibbs forges with each and every listener. His thoughts, his feelings; his hopes and fears – they are all yours to share and revel in. This is the mark of a truly great storyteller." artree folk and roots mag.

 

Miss him at your peril!

Returning to "The Birch"!

 

Whalebone is an acoustic guitar duo who have their roots in the Celtic Folk music of the British Isles, interwoven with strands of rock and Americana, focusing on strong melodies and harmony, with the delicate interplay between two guitars at the heart of their sound. Alongside original compositions, Char & Steve have also arranged & recorded many classic rock tunes as instrumentals using the two acoustic guitar format. Prepare to be entertained with high energy acoustic music alongside haunting atmospheric tunes, played on acoustic and electric guitars. 

 

“..instrumental music of high sophistication…skilled musicians and imaginative arrangers” (Living Tradition)

“..can be enjoyed by non folkies who can quite easily pass it off as classic rock and there are enough folk elements to keep the best finger in the ear traditionalist happy too” (Folkall)

John Otway and

Wild Willy Barrett!!

click to see a performance

It is impossible to pigeonhole John Otway and Wild Willy Barrett. Indeed, many have tried and failed. Now's your chance to try! They are back on the road. Over Forty years have passed since their "Hit" Really free and they are still going strong. The contrast between the dead pan humour of Barrett and mad onstage antics of Otway are still hilarious to watch. If you've not seen them before be prepared for anything from bare-chested theremin playing to wah wah wheelie bin as the duo jump from one hit and forty near misses to another. Don't miss this  amazing and irreverent performance by two master entertainers.
