With much excitement, we can announce our new bi-weekly folk session is now underway. In addition to the excellent work done by Russell (fiddle) and Rhuaridh (guitar) in sessions gone by, we're doubly excited to welcome Ewan MacPherson and Lauren MacColl to both the area and our session.
Ewan and Lauren are about as prolific as it gets in Scotland, touring and recording with many a band and in their own names also. Ewan is on guitar and mandolin, while Lauren will warm your heart with her fiddle. Shooglenifty, Rachel newton, Salt House, RANT and Ewan MacLennan are just a few to regularly feature our players.
If you can play, or sing a bit, don't be shy. Come and grab a seat by the fire and get involved.

OBI IS 7 years old! With The Little Kicks, support from Lional and Dirty Hearts Club DJs
Yes, an other self-indulgent, it's all about me affair, as we continue to celebrate the anniversary of the day we (re)opened the OBI doors and made our new home here. Seriously, though, we were starting to feel a bit self conscious about this annual knees up, but after missing last year (due to the Storm Desmond enforced closure), we thought what the hell. Plus, who really need an excuse on the Saturday before Christmas (eve)?The Little Kicks are a 4 piece band based in Scotland who have a reputation for their own distinctive brand of heartfelt electronic indie rock music. The band have a new record set for release in early 2017 which they can’t wait to let the world hear.
The band’s last album, “Put Your Love In Front Of Me” (released in late 2013) was part funded by Creative Scotland and met with critical acclaim both in the UK and further afield in Europe. Several album tracks including the lead single “Girl” and it’s B-side (“a cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams”) have enjoyed national radio airplay on BBC 6 Music, BBC Radio 1, Radio Scotland and XFM. Following the album’s release the band completed three successful headline tours of the UK & Europe to a great response and also toured as main support for Public Service Broadcasting and We Were Promised Jetpacks in the UK. The band and their music is connecting with more and more people and the future is shaping up to be bright for The Little Kicks.

Once those of you who have booked for dinner have all finished, we'll clear the restaurant out for a night of top tunes, from our all star DJ line up. The smoko area will also have it's own scene going on, again with our DJs, outside bar, a couple of small ho-bo style fires dotted about and general good times. Dinner is now fully booked. There's no charge to mill about outside, round the smoko and outside bar (we'll have a porta-loo there too), but only those with wrist bands will be allowed inside.
