Mike Silver – Sat 19th October

 
Sat 19th October – Mike Silver, Doors – 8.00,  
Ticket – £10

It’s the voice that you can’t miss, right from the get-go – a warm, seasoned instrument in its own right that brings to life each of the fourteen songs on this latest album by the voice’s owner, time-served roots and acoustic singer-songwriter, Mike Silver. A regular and long-time performer on the English folk scene for many years, Silver has always been known for his self-penned songs, solo performances and, more recently, acclaimed concert and album collaborations with Johnny Coppin – always with the emphasis on home-grown songs; so this departure into performing the works of others is a major change.

Jim and Susie Malcolm – Sat 24th Aug

Jim and Susie Malcolm. Appearing upstairs at the Bothy on Sat 24th August. Doors open 7.30pm, Tickets £10. Call 07968 82217 email bobphilips25@live.co.uk

For the past 30 years and more, Jim Malcolm has been a Scots troubadour, taking the traditional songs of Scotland and his own prizewinning compositions to all corners of the UK, and around almost every state in the USA.  His voice is one of the finest in Scotland, accompanied by meticulous guitar playing and mouth organ. 

This year he has another trick up his sleeve!  With their children off to pastures new, wife Susie, an award-winning traditional singer herself, has broken out of the Malcolm office.  She sings songs from the North East and has a penchant for ballads. 

Together they offer harmonies and humour, tales from the road, the riverside and from the home front, and are not to be missed.

“One of the great Scottish voices of our time”
Frank Hennessy, BBC Radio Wales

“Quietly, unforcefully and undeniably stunning”
Mojo

“A master of well chosen words and melodic inventiveness”
Rock ‘n’ Reel

“One of the finest singing voices in Scotland in any style”
Living Tradition

“Persuasive vocals and sheer, irrepressible rhythm”
Cencrastus

“Jim Malcolm will just melt you in your seat.”
The Scotsman
