Glenfarg Folk Club first met on 3rd April 1978 and over the intervening 41 years has developed into one of the premier folk clubs in the country. Having been centred in the village of Glenfarg since its inception, the Club was forced to move to Kinross on 9th November 2015 due to the closure of the Glenfarg Hotel; happily, we have remained at Backstage in the Green Hotel, Kinross since that auspicious date. We meet every Monday night and offer a wide range of musical acts as well as providing an opportunity for budding performers to "have a go". Over the course of any year's programme you can enjoy both traditional and contemporary folk music from both home and abroad and can hear blues, country, jazz, ragtime, story-telling and poetry, always performed in a welcoming, friendly and relaxed atmosphere. We are renowned as a "singing club", which is particularly obvious when we are treated to any chorus songs; the Glenfarg Audience Choir is always eagerly awaiting the chance to participate! As well as our "choir", we are fortunate to have several members who are accomplished "floor" singers in their own right. In addition to our valued guest artiste nights, we also host our own "Singarounds" on a monthly basis, events which permit any attendee to perform amongst "friends" who offer both encouragement and craic.

Scottish & Finnish musicians won’t let Brexit spoil their plans

Tel: +44 (0) 1360 870248

 

BREXIT or no Brexit, deal or no deal – whatever the outcome of the tiresome fiasco, Scottish bluesmanDave Arcari and his Scandinavian counterpart Ismo Haavisto, from Finland, won’t be letting it scupper their plans for a series of Scottish shows together in late November.

The two musicians became firm friends after a they played a series of shows together in Finland earlier in the year. Plans were quickly put in place for Haavisto to make his Scottish debut as Arcari’s special guest at shows at Sneaky Pete’s, Edinburgh (Wednesday 27 November)Backstage at the Green Hotel, Kinross(Thursday 28 November)The Blue Lamp, Aberdeen (Friday 29 November) and The Hug & Pint, Glasgow(Saturday 30 November).

Indeed, Arcari’s thoughts on the political climate are documented in his latest single Brexit Blues – a song, he says is nether pro-, nor anti-, Brexit adding: “...the song is more a reflection on the clusterf*ck around it.”

Arcari has just returned from his third USA tour of 2019 – a series of trips which have seen him cover the west – which included the summer launch of the ‘Dave Arcari signature model' guitar from California-based National Reso-Phonic Guitars, the mid-West and, on this latest jaunt, the east coast.

The signature guitar project began earlier in the year when Arcari made his California debut demonstrating instruments on National Reso-Phonic’s booth at the NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants)Show in Anaheim as well as performing a string of dates in and around Los Angeles.

One of the UK's most successful Genesis tribute bands makes a return visit to Kinross, the ever popular Mama.

Mama faithfully reproduce the sights and sounds of a high octane, contemporary Genesis rock concert with fantastic musicianship from acclaimed musicians.

Mama will take you on a journey from Genesis' early Peter Gabriel years, through the Phil Collins' era of the 70's and 80's and right up to their final studio album, 'We Can't Dance'. As an additional bonus, the bands Kinross shows enable Mama to incorporate elements of solo works from Peter Gabriel, Phil Collins, Mike & the Mechanics and Steve Hackett.

Expect to hear Genesis classics, In The Cage Medley, Mama, Los Endos, Home By The Sea, The lamb Lies Down On Broadway, Ripples and many more, with bonus tracks such as Follow You Follow Me, In The Air Tonight, Sledgehammer, No Son Of Mine, The Living Years, Land Of Confusion and Suppers Ready.

Lead singer, John Wilkinson, delivers the Phil Collins vocal sound with power, passion and precision. On keyboards, the band benefits from the technical wizardry of John Comish. Guitars are provided by Jon Vatikiotis, backed up with the rock solid technical playing of James Cooper on drums and Dave Jones on bass, 12 string guitar and bass pedals.

When asked about the Kinross shows, John Wilkinson said, "We have played there many times over the past four years and the audiences have all been superb. They know what they like (pun intended) and we look forward every year to having a two night Genesis party with them!"

Fascinating stuff” – Cerys Matthews, BBC 6 Music

A band name on everyone’s lips” – fRoots

Best Emerging Artist 2019 - Wales Folk Awards

 

The remarkable rise of double BBC Radio 2 folk award nominees The Trials of Cato on the UK folk-scene has been the subject of massive critical attention. Dubbed "the Sex Pistols of folk,” (J Davis) they pay clear homage to the tradition whilst twisting old bones into something febrile and modern, with stomping tunes and captivating stories. 

Originally from North Wales and Yorkshire, The Trials of Cato formed whilst living in Beirut, and spent a year boiling down the roots of their sound into a hybrid of traditional influences that intrigued Lebanese audiences in the country’s biggest venues. Returning home from Beirut in the winter of 2016, they have since torn a shape very much their own into the canvas of the UK folk scene.

Back in the UK, they set to performing tirelessly up and down the country, leading to BBC Radio 2s Mark Radcliffe hailing them as “one of the real discoveries on the folk circuit in recent times.” Musical development in the run up to their debut album proper was swift and sure, with Hide and Hair, "one of the most impressive debut albums of the year," (Songlines ★★★★) winning acclaim and receiving repeated national airplay on BBC Radio 2 and BBC 6 Music.

Lindisfarne first appeared out of Tyneside in the early '70s with an instantly recognisable style - their hit records: Meet Me On The Corner, Lady Eleanor, Fog On The Tyne and Run For Home have achieved classic status. Whilst this mainstream chart success did not stay with them, Lindisfarne remained as popular as ever on the live circuit. 

The '90s saw a resurgence of interest in their music and albums Here Comes The Neighbourhood 1998 and Promenade 2002 have been received as enthusiastically as anything from the band's past.

Edinburgh-based 5-piece The Wynntown Marshals formed in 2007 and have been described by the Metro as “arguably Scotland’s strongest band” and regarded by The Herald as “the best Americana band outside North America”. 
 
With three studio albums, several EPs, and a 10-year retrospective collection under their belts so far, the Marshals have recorded sessions for ‘Whispering Bob’ Harris’s BBC Radio 2 show, as well as BBC Radio Scotland sessions on ‘Another Country with Ricky Ross’ and an appearance on 'The Quay Sessions with Roddy Hart' in 2018.
 
Their debut album “Westerner” was released in 2010 with the Belgian website RootsTime proclaiming it “the best alt.country album from Europe ever”, with the follow-up (“The Long Haul”) being placed at number 10 in the Sunday Herald’s list of the ‘Top 50 Scottish Albums of 2013’. Their next album, 2015's “The End of the Golden Age”, was awarded 8/10 in Uncut, who referred to the band as “colonising the shadowland that lies between Tom Petty and Teenage Fanclub”. 
 
In 2017, the band marked a decade together by releasing a 16-track retrospective entitled “After All These Years”, with Louder Than War awarding the compilation 9/10 and declaring that “The Marshals have been crafting songs of such high quality that they're surely a national treasure”, and that they are “miles above the competition at this sort of thing”.
 
The Wynntown Marshals will play their first headline shows in over a year including a special afternoon show at Backstage at the Green Hotel in Kinross on Sunday 15th December, where they will debut their new line-up as well as previewing material from their forthcoming studio album which will be released on Blue Rose Records in the spring of 2020.
