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.

European blues awards nominees the Starlite Campbell Band is husband and wife Suzy Starlite and Simon Campbell working as a four piece with some of the world’s finest musicians.
The band is steeped in British blues – think early Led Zeppelin, The Faces and Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac. With contemporary original songs inspired by real life and real people, they have a sound and vibe reminiscent of the mid 60’s to early 70’s - the halcyon days of music.
Starlite and Campbell, who married after a whirlwind musical romance, released their debut album ‘Blueberry Pie’to rave reviews worldwide and a prestigious nomination for Best Album in the European Blues Awards.
"Unquestionably Blueberry Pie is a stunning debut" | 5* - Morgan Hogarth, Rock n Reel Magazine
With extensive international radioplay charting top 10 in the UK, Australia, The Netherlands and American Blues Charts and over 50 four and five star reviews worldwide, the Starlite Campbell Band leave an indelible impression on audiences of all ages and musical backgrounds.
From Suzy’s addictive, fun-loving bass groove and thunderous tone to Simon’s explosive vocals and fretwork, the band is joined by keyboard maestro Jonny Henderson on Hammond/Wurlitzer (Robben Ford / Matt Schofield) and shuffle-master Steve Gibson on drums (Chris Farlowe / Larry Garner).
“Just as the Rolling Stones are making huge waves with their 30th studio release, Blue & Lonesome, along come a couple of seasoned musicians who bring back the sound of early UK blues, to near perfection.” | JD Nash - American Blues Scene, USA
The art of the song is everything and Starlite and Campbell fly in the face of disposable music - writing, recording and producing their work and then releasing on their independent label Supertone Records.
"Blueberry Pie is a great album" | Cerys Matthews, BBC Radio 2 & 6 Music
The band recently headlined the Saturday night at Wangaratta festival of jazz & blues in Australia where they were joined by guest keyboard player Clayton Doley and quickly followed by a successful two week tour in the UK to great reviews.
Billy Bremner started out in Lulu's backing group The Luvvers. After joining Neil Innes in the band Fatso he recorded some solo singles under the pseudonym 'Bill Murray' before joining Nick Lowe and Dave Edmunds in Rockpile.
Billy Bremner sang lead vocals on the 1980 Rockpile single 'Heart'. He then wrote 'Trouble Boys' which became a hit for both Dave Edmunds and Thin Lizzy. Bremner then released a few solo singles on Stiff Records before becoming a full time member of The Pretenders where he played the lead guitar on their 1982 hit 'Back on the Chain Gang'.
The band continued through the 1970s, never capturing the Gram Parsons front man dynamic, until 1979 when singer/ songwriter & multi-instrumentalist Greg Harris was ‘discovered’ by stalwarts Kleinow, & then Burritos members (Byrds’) bassist Skip Battin & Gib Guilbeau. Greg’s performance of classic Parsons’ material was uncanny. This era of the band, mostly intact, continued into the 1990s.
Greg Harris, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and vocalist arrived in LA signed to RCA Records in 1977. He worked a short stint in the infamous Palomino Club house band. He did session work for everyone from The Everly Brothers, Alabama & Gene Parsons, joining The Flying Burrito Bros. in 1979 and recorded two projects, Live in Tokyo in 79’ and The Burrito Bros “Live In Europe” in 86’.
Jeff Pevar, sought after guitarist, multi-instrumentalist, vocalist - is possibly best known for his touring & recording work with sixties music icons, David Crosby, CSN, Phil Lesh & Friends, Joe Cocker, Ray Charles, Jazz is Dead & Jefferson Starship, with whom he played bass for the Woodstock 40th Anniversary Tour. He also supported Bette Midler, Rickie Lee Jones and many others.
Tony Morley, bassist - has amassed such a heady range of credits, it would be impossible to list all of them. Notably, he has toured/ recorded in the U.S., Japan, Germany, Italy, France, The Netherlands, Luxembourg, Scandinavia with Jefferson Starship and Live Dead ‘69
Richard Newman,drummer/percussionist is one of Britain’s most in demand musicians. He recently completed a massive tour with Paul Rogers & Jeff Beck. He has also toured late greats Alvin Lee, Rory Gallagher, Jefferson Airplane’s Paul Kantner in Jefferson Starship, and he continues with Deb Bonham and Live Dead ’69.
A full band tribute that covers the full range of the duo's career together, as well as drawing extensively from Paul Simon's solo career. From the early harmonies of 'Wednesday Morning 3am' and 'Homeward Bound' to the later beauty of 'Bridge Over Troubled Water', this is live entertainment at its finest.
Paul and Art are played to perfection, bringing in elements of their famously fractious relationship, as well as replicating the beautiful harmonies flawlessly.
It was so inspirational playing Free material with Deborah Bonham's band when we played charity gigs that I promised myself someday we would tour with this band.
PAUL RODGERS 'Free Spirit'
‘Wow is all I got to say after that, and boy can Deborah Bonham sing’
Johnnie Walker BBC Radio (October 2018)

Deborah and her powerful soul infused band, featuring players who have themselves played and recorded with Paul Rodgers, Robert Plant, Steve Marriott, Freddie Mercury and Rory Gallagher, have recently returned from a 2 month USA 'Stars Align' Ampitheatre Tour with Paul Rodgers, Jeff Beck and Ann Wilson (Heart), where Deborah opened each show with a mesmerizing set to standing ovations and her band backed Paul Rodgers for a selection of Free & Bad Company classics.
