Findlay Napier- Glasgow-based singer-songwriter whose writing nestles neatly between the parallel world of folk and Americana. His most recent album VIP was #2 in The Telegraph’s top folk albums of 2015 and Maverick Magazine describes it as, “A brave, creative and smashing listen.” Findlay’s shows are about storytelling.
Otis Gibbs – Otis has been a favourite of ours since he first appeared in Glasgow with Sam Baker in 2007. His song writing is of a very high standard, and his 2007 album One Day Our Whispers is a hidden gem. Otis played Glasgow Americana in 2008. His latest album “Souvenirs Of A Misspent Youth” went down a storm with Billy Bragg, he said: “Souvenirs of a Misspent Youth has been a constant co
mpanion on my headphones over the past few weeks.”
Roseanne is a 23 year old singer-songwriter from Edinburgh, she was named as one of the four nominees for the 2015 BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award, and one of her songs was subsequently played on the Mark Radcliffe show. This also led to a live performance on Radio 2 on the Simon Mayo show. In the summer of 2015, Roseanne was selected by Steve Earle for a Scholarship at his song writing camp in New York. He selected her for a Scholarship again in 2016.
Mary Jean Lewis- Mary Jean draws on a range of country, blues, and rockabilly to create her soulful style based on her powerful voice and intimate connection with the lyrics. This night promises to be an intimate occasion as MJ, Tim Davidson, & Martin Barrett perform some of the bands original material for us. Up close and personal with this Southern Belle and two Low Men 🙂
