Gus Munro
With support from Blind Jeremy

Gus returns to the Craigmore Bowling Club to take the audiance on another  incredible musical journey off raw vocals and perfect slide guitar.
If you missed Gus last time this is the time to get along a hear this musical genius highly recommended.

Gus Munro is one of the most exciting live solo acts in Scotland’s current and thriving music scene. The singer-songwriter effortlessly combines a variety of musical genres, underpinned by his imaginative lyrics.

He has also combined his love of Scottish traditional music and his passion for the blues, creating a genre often described as Scottish-Folk-Blues. His songwriting manages to retain the feel and emotional expression of the deep-rooted blues, while pushing through his Scottish roots in a modern context.  

The emotional depth of his voice often displays a real sense of vulnerability. He is an artist who is not afraid to show his emotions and convey them through his music.  His singing and songwriting are complemented by his imaginative and melodic slide guitar work, which adds to the emotional impact of his live performance. A genuine warm and engaging performer, Gus will draw you into his world and compel you to listen.

With support from Blind Jeremy this will be a night of music to remember

Tony McManus & Julia Toaspern

Support TBC

Tony’s music is beyond beautiful, it’s perfect” – Tommy Emmanuel “Julia’s bell like voice and her filigrane fiddle playing are thrilling. She moves effortlessly from fiddle to guitar, her solo is impressive.” – SalonFestival Tony McManus is the leading celtic guitarist worldwide and has just been listed as one of the 50 transcendental guitarists of all time by Guitar Player Magazine. While Tony is known as a soloist his frequent collaborations with diverse musicians have always been a significant part of his work. Julia Toaspern is a multi-talented musician from Berlin who combines classical training on violin and voice with a wide interest in genres such as jazz, baroque and traditional music. She has released two albums of original songs and has performed in both classical and singer/songwriter modes on both sides of the Atlantic. On top of all this her skills as a guitarist are prodigious and make an exciting fit with Tony’s work. Their twin guitar treatment of traditional music is unique and each supports the other in exploring the harmonic possibilities of these old, and not so old, tunes. Each of the pair both flatpicks and fingerpicks at the highest level but always at the service of the tune rather than a display of technique. Her violin can effortlessly morph into a fiddle as she weaves from Italian madrigal to Scottish reel. Julia’s songs go to the heart of love and loss, hope and survival and are inflected with musical input from a wide and eclectic experience of musical life. Tony’s and Julia’s arrangements are rooted in deep musicality and heartfelt expression. Having met over a conversation in Berlin about JS Bach, together they play and sing music that speaks to them and hopefully through them to a wider audience.
