Festivals and beers and one-night-onlys

Todays ever-tardy blog post is brought to you by craft beer, festivals, and one-offs. 

Hello folks, once again I’ve left a lamentably long gap between blog posts. I’d apologise but I know many of you subscribe via e-mail and have probably enjoyed not having me clog your inboxes with my rambles every other day. Leaving big gaps does make for a more jam-packed-with-news-and-brilliant-things sort of post, so with that in mind, lets look at what I’ve got coming up.


I’m really excited to announce that I’ll be playing at a couple of festivals this year! First up is Brew at the Bog which takes place at Bogbain Farm in Inverness on Saturday the 4th of May. I’ll be sharing a stage with some awesome bands, including Olympic Swimmers, Kitty the Lion, This Silent Forest, Michael Cassidy and many more. Check out the full lineup here. In case you haven’t heard of it before, this festival is brought to you by craft beer revolutionaries BrewDog! So if you want to support great beer and local talent, get yersel to Inverness for this festival. You can book tickets from this lovely link.

Just announced is the line-up for Doune the Rabbit Hole which I’m incredibly happy to be playing at this year. I’ll be playing on the Saturday (that’s the 24th of August) alongside the likes of Panda Su, Washington Irving, Beerjacket, The Pastels and headliners, Clinic. There are loads of great acts across the whole weekend and I’m really excited to be part of this festival so I hope to see lots of you there! Check out the festival website for more details and to book tickets.

A one-off open mic night!

You might remember that I used to host a peculiar little open mic in the basement of city centre bar Vespbar (formerly O’Henry’s). It had music, poetry, at one point a bearded hula girl, and a couple of times an artist friend of mine drew what was in your minds. Well, I’m reprising my role for one night only at Broadcast on Sauchiehall Street and I want it to be awesome. Lots of great musicians and artists came to play at Vespbar and I want to get all of them (and more) to Broadcast for this one night. It’s this Sunday, the 21st of April and I really hope you’ll come and join us. There’ll be beer for performers and a night of great free entertainment for all. Whether you’re a musician, singer, poet, comedian, bear-wrestler, lion-tamer, or artist formerly known as the artist formerly known as Prince, I want to see you at Broadcast this Sunday. All are welcome.

As always, I’ve got other things in the pipeline which I’ll update you on quick sharp, but I think that’ll do for now. Hope to see you soon.

Til next time,

love Shambles
