Friday 14th March              Brian Peters
An outstanding singer, guitarist, melodeon & anglo-concertina player of
energy and passion. Brian believes strongly in the power and relevance of
the old songs and ballads  but he’s no diehard and covers the works of
writers from Leon Rosselson to Lyle Lovett as well as contributing witty
and hard hitting songs of his own.
 
                                       With the  Pigeon English Band
 
 
Friday 4th April           
Elizabeth Stewart with Alison McMorland
A unique opportunity to hear two of Scotland’s most renowned ballad singers.
Elizabeth Stewart learnt her art from her Traveller family, the Fetterangus
Stewarts, especially her aunt, Lucy Stewart. She also plays Scottish dance
music on the piano.
 Alison McMorland, producer of Elizabeth’s CD “Binnorrie, has long been
admired for her beautiful voice and her insight into the ballads.
 “..unites scrupulous traditional fidelity with versatile and creative artistry.
(Hamish Henderson)                                                 With The Rakes

This year we focus on another of his loves - American music -  plus the usual mix of Irish and English guests.                      
Also we hope that many of our previous guests will join us again, along with Musical Traditions  residents who give the club its special quality. Keith co-founded the club with us in 1990.
