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.

Sunday 15th March (Mother's Day!)

Fat Suit (jazz/fusion)

If there was a day of the week that god created Jazz, it would surely be Sunday.  We know he was supposedly resting then, after a fair shift earlier in the week, but we have it on good authority he rested by playing jazz. That's why we've taken this previous Saturday night performer and slotted them into the Sunday night.  They'll be playing in the restaurant area, it will be seated, it will be very good.  Hope you can make it. 

"It’s impressive stuff... a hefty groove running throughout almost the entire evening; a nucleus around which all the instruments on the display, from 21st century electronics to wood to brass, can spin with abandon." $ stars. The Herald

Along with a 4* review in the HeraldScotland for their show at Stereo FS will be now delighted that Rave Child have also stuck up their take on the evening! Check it out at the link below!

Fat Suit were also played by Jim Gellatly earlier today on his Amazing Radio show listen again here: http://amazingradio.com/shows/JimGellatly

Salt House

Acoustic four-piece Salt House is the meeting of four distinct musical minds on the Scottish scene. Their highly current sound is earthy, deep-rooted, yet eagerly progressive, built from grassroots folk with contemporary influences. 2013 saw the release of their debut ‘Lay Your Dark Low’ described as “the multifaceted work of a significant new collective” (The Herald). Boasting previous winners of BBC Young Folk Awards, a Scottish Jazz Award and many titles at the MG ALBA Scots Trad Music Awards, they now join together to make “a seamless team” (The Guardian). Their reworking of old ballads sits alongside their own writing and the instrumental section wraps Siobhan Miller’s striking, distinctively Scottish voice in a myriad of musical colour and textures. This night will be a cosy, candle-lit affair, with the curtains drawn.

Salt House are a perfect fit for OBI's Close The Curtains Events.

Siobhan Miller: Vocals, Harmonium Ewan MacPherson: Guitar, Banjo, Mandolin, Vocals Lauren MacColl: Viola, Fiddle Euan Burton: Double Bass - See more at: http://visitcairngorms.com/?id=291&refno=1000003888#sthash.MTuPuvQR.dpuf

Cera Impala & The New Prohibition

Cera Impala is a banjo-wielding mama who oozes wild style. Her songs are unique yet feel instantly familiar, and she delivers them with a voice that melts even the hardest of hearts. Originally from Flagstaff, Arizona, Cera has performed all across the USA and Europe. Cera appears with her hand-picked band, The New Prohibition, including Dr. Dirk Ronneburg (Southern Tenant Folk Union, Viper Swing) on fiddle and Joel Sanderson on bass.

Since making a home in Edinburgh in 2012, she has also lent her voice to the notorious queens of harmony, The Bevvy Sisters.

'Graceful, eerie, tragically beautiful, it's like she's living with a backwoods secret she's determined to keep.'--Victory Review (Seattle)

'Simply stunning…a phenomenal set. Thank you Cera - it was a privilege to spend some time in your world.'?~ARRAN FOLK FESTIVAL

'The likes of Crooked Still or Nickel Creek…wreaks of authenticity, delivered with due deference, a bourbon-soaked liturgy of distress.'~FATEA MAGAZINE (UK)

“Impala drives every song with some fine banjo playing while the fiddle and bass are equally accomplished. The tunes are catchy.' ~ MAVERICK MAGAZINE (UK)
