OBT or 'Oakes, Bews, Thorpe' is a Scottish power trio consisting of Tom Oakes (Ross Couper + Tom Oakes, Auvo Quartet) on guitars and wooden flute, Jon Bews (Malinky, James Yorkston, Cantrip) on 5 string fiddle and Daniel Thorpe (Young Traditional Musician of the Year 2010, Malinky, Tyde) on fiddle. Drawing on the music of Scotland combined with world music influences and new composition, OBT’s dynamic performances work as well in an intimate acoustic setting or on a packed festival dancefloor.

FRIDAY EVENING

For over a decade Sheelanagig have brought their foot-stomping folk tunes to audiences across the globe. Guitar, fiddle and double bass combined with the rhythmic energy of flute, drums and a bagful of joint-jumping tunes, means this quintet from South-West England create a real dynamic inherent in both their furious dance medleys as well as their interestingly arranged original pieces. Prepare yourself for “a completely top night out.” Mike Harding - Radio 2

Friday EVENING

 

To celebrate 21 years in the musical melting pot of Glasgow Findlay Napier released his new album Glasgow in October 2017. The album features self-penned songs written with collaborator and album producer Boo Hewerdine and songs plucked from Glasgow's past and present. Folk Radio UK said "laced with sadness and joy, melancholy and anger, this is a magnificent piece of work that both celebrates the city and underscores Napier as one of the finest songwriters and storytellers of the contemporary Scottish folk scene." 

SATURDAY EVENING

Free One is the much anticipated debut album from Kinnaris Quintet. The album was released in September 2018 to rave reviews. The Herald said it was “a great example of musicians moving the tradition forward…” All vigorous, driving, high spirited musicians in their own right Fiona MacAskill (fiddle), Laura Wilkie (fiddle), Aileen (Reid) Gobbi (5 string fiddle), Laura Beth Salter (mandolin) and Jenn Butterworth (guitar) have all come together to form the brand new quintet that is taking the Scottish traditional music scene by storm.

SATURDAY EVENING

 

 The coach house

The Coach House was one of four venues in Scotland on the shortlist for the Sunday Herald Culture Awards Venue Of The Year 2018, and it’s easy to see why. Great sound; unbeatable atmosphere; a massive woodburner…what more do you need? Oh aye; top quality acts! Check out what we have on offer for you this year as part of The Coach House’s programme.
