April   28     The Ian Walker Band

“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.

Folk/Rock singer-songwriter Bob Knight's lyrics

are heartfelt and incisive, yet often infused with

Having grown up in a musical family, Rona was introduced to traditional music as a baby, and grew up being simultaneously trained in both Highland fiddle style and classical music. She became interested in singing when she attended Gaelic Medium Primary School. Rona led fiddle group Gizzen Briggs for several years performing at the opening of the Scottish Parliament in front of the Queen and First Minister in 2004. She has taught at several fiddle camps in the USA and has played alongside many wonderful musicians such April Verch, Brian Wicklund and Brad Leftwich in cross-genre performances. Rona is currently studying for a Masters Degree at Newcastle University and, with the performance aspect, aims to fuse Highland music with that of the Americas, drawing particularly on Appalachian melodies

May 26    Hoolet

Having performed recently to rave reviews at venues around the country, there is a definite buzz around this

rooted in traditional folk music. Helen is a classically trained violinist but with the beating heart of a fiddler.

Three disparate strands that, when woven together, create music that is uplifting, exhilarating and often

deeply moving. Featuring a blend of traditional folk songs, classically influenced pieces and Ronnie's stunning
