 March  24     Kishmul                                               Mar 31   Jim King

Formed in mid 2018, Kishmul is

comprised of four musicians who,

all having very different musical

backgrounds, met on the Edinburgh

session scene.

All multi- instrumentalists, they

started playing together by attending each other's

sessions and quickly became good friends. Taking

influences from Ireland, Scotland, the Isle of Man, and

continental Europe, their music is a unique blend of

many folk music traditions, complimenting one

another to make a rich inimitable flavour. The

reception to their sell-out debut gig, at the Edinburgh

Fringe Festival in August 2018 was phenomenal, with

one folk club's review stating that the band "promises

to be one of Edinburgh's best exports over the coming

Years." This will be their first gig with newest member,

César Joughin.

April 7     Awry

AWRY is a band based in Scotland who make

fine, mirthy original music that fuses traditional

Acoustic  instruments (mostly made from wood

and metal) with powerful soundscapes (mostly

made from electric) and the Gaelic language

 (mostly made from sound and sometimes paper)…

AWRY have a reputation for being able to make people whirl like

a dervish and dance like loons but also dream, drift and doodle…

Jim started playing the guitar in the

60's and by the beginning of the 70s he

was playing around some of his local

folk clubs and pubs. By 1981 he was

fronting the Boston Folk Club in

Lincolnshire and earned a reputation as

a competent and entertaining compére.

In 1985 he moved to Glasgow. He was introduced to the Star Folk Club at Carlton Place and became a regular there for the next few years and it became a 'musical home' and a source of some great friendships.

April  14  Wildwood Jack

After selling their home to hit the road

the acoustic duo Wildwood Jack spend

large parts of the year touring across

the UK, Europe and New Zealand.

Their stories and adventures are deeply

rooted in their music and their songs

speak of amazing journeys both real and imagined.

'Wildwood Jack' is their name for the independent spirit of music that knows no boundaries and their wide repertoire draws from an eclectic songbook as well as instrumentals and heartwarming original songs.

April 21st.      George Machray

George is a fine and recognised singer/songwriter

from the old fishing and mining village of Port

Seton in East Lothian.

He writes about what he knows: the people

and places found along the Firth of Forth coastline. Their themes

meander from the humorous to the serious, from the ridiculous to

the romantic. George is a three-time winner at the Glenfarg Folk

Club Song Contest and has been the audience vote winner twice in

the annual Edinburgh Folk Club Song Competition. He has opened

for artists such as Adam McNaughtan, Isla St Clair and Barluath.

April 28     The Ian Walker Band


comprises Moe Walker, Jimmy

Scott and Ian with additional

musicians and singers joining as the

events dictate. The Band plays at a

very wide variety of venues and the response has been very positive. The Band released an album called “JUST ONE MORE CHORUS” in late 2017 and it has been receiving warm reviews including “Album of the Week” status on radio. John Graham of The Clydesiders supported the Band on the album with fiddle, bass and mandolin and Ken Russell also contributed with Northumbrian Small pipes on one track.
