Coming Up

midweek, we CLOSE THE CURTAINS

outside of the weekends, we close the curtains and dim the lights, for a series of intimate, candle-lit gigs in our conservatory.  A limited number of tables are available for dinner during these shows (unless otherwise stated), for which booking is strongly recommended.  Doors at 8.30pm, show starting at 9pm.

weekends mean LATE NIGHT LIVE

Late Night Live comes at the weekends, where the music gets a bit louder, the drinks flow a bit faster and things go on a bit later.  A band plus DJ continues to be the format of these nights, often with one of the band themselves spinning for the night, offering an insight into the musical influences that go into the bands own sets, but more importantly keeping you dancing either side of the band being on stage. Entry to all Late Night Live gigs remains free, with things kicking off about 10pm.

AS GLASGOW WELCOMES THE ATHLETES OF THE COMMONWEALTH, WE WELCOME THEIR MUSICIANS

Jinski (England)

JINSKI is a duo featuring the work of songwriter Steve Wegrzynski and guitar player Dave Kennedy http://l.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.jinski.com%2F&h=dAQEzxtnU&s=1.

Steve Wegrzynski (aka Steve Jinski solo performer) shared the bill with many artists including David Gray and Richard Thompson. His songs come from everywhere and are inspired by the trials and tribulations of everyday life. His music speaks from the heart.
Dave Kennedy was a founder member of the band 21 Strangers managed by the late Chas Chandler (The Animals and Jimi Hendrix fame) and signed to Charisma Records alongside Peter Gabriel.
Other history facts ........... Steve has toured all over Europe and Scandinavia appearing in all kinds of venues from intimate folk clubs to the Reading Festival and Hackney Empire. 
Dave’s first love is his guitar, but he is also a multi instrumentalist and an accomplished producer/arranger.

Pacific Curls (New Zealand)

With a cornerstone of backbeat Pacific rhythms, vivacious fiddle playing and evocative Maori instrumentation and lyrics, Pacific Curls have pioneered a fusion sound that seamlessly blend their indigenous roots of Pacific, Maori and Celtic cultures. 

Tuesday 29th July, 8.30pm

The Mae Trio (Australia)

With their roots firmly planted in folk tradition, Australian award-winning band The Mae Trio are a breath of fresh air on the contemporary folk scene.

Incorporating stellar three-part harmonies, complex arrangements

and lyrical sophistication, these youngsters are on a rapid rise.

Recipients of the Folk Alliance Australia Youth Award and the prestigious Maton Class Act Award, this year has seen The Mae Trio make a colourful splash with international performances from Celtic Connections to Folk Alliance International in Kansas City and MIDEM Festival in Cannes, not to mention a string of shows at Australia’s leading festivals from Port Fairy Folk Festival to Blue Mountains Music Festival and the National Folk Festival.

Maggie Rigby (banjo, ukuleles, guitar, marimba and vocals), Elsie Rigby (violin, ukulele and vocals) and Anita Hillman (cello, bass and vocals) started playing together in 2011, and the last year has seen the band burst onto the international scene.  

It is a rare treat to experience such unique instrumentation and spine-tingling harmonies, and The Mae Trio promises bucket loads of both.

Thursday 31st July, 8.30pm

Cairngorms Ceilidh Trail (Scotland)

The Cairngorms Cèilidh Trail, now in its seventh year, offers training and performance opportunities to musicians aged 16 to 22yrs. 

Some of them may be considering a career in traditional music and the tour gives them a supported taste of life on the road at the same time as sharing their skills and enthusiasm with a wide audience. Working with local businesses and promoters to develop cultural tourism throughout the National Park, the Cèilidh Trail offers a unique experience.
Auditions are held in March and the eight successful musicians attend a training weekend at the beginning of June, then a further week in Plockton at the beginning of July.
The band tours the National Park and surrounding area for two weeks in July then a week between Christmas and New Year. The tour is co-ordinated by Fèis Spè and the band is accompanied on tour by a Leader and a driver.
The Cairngorms Cèilidh Trail is funded by a number of organisations including Fèisean nan Gàidheal, Creative Scotland, Highlands & Islands Enterprise and Scottish Natural Heritage.
