The Hot Seats – what a show !

Hot Seats
Well all I can say is You Should Have Been There !
Fresh ( relative term) from their appearance at HebFest in Stornaway, we were very lucky to get this band as they made their way back south. Their blend of old time, bluegrass, Appalachian, and country all driven at blinding pace was mesmerising both to hear and see.
Come back soon boys – we had a ball.
Video up soon.

Pete Coe – The one man folk festival.

Appearing at the Salmon Bothy on 8th December

It’s a few years now since Pete Coe celebrated 30 years on the road, and though not unique among many of the singers of his generation, he is distinctive. Nowhere do you find all the threads of song, dance, musician, caller and organiser woven together into such a rich tapestry. The tag of ‘one man folk festival’ is well earned!
