Glenfarg Folk Club Present…
To close our first Feast at Backstage at the Green, we are honoured to have the brilliant Dougie MacLean as our headline act. He needs no introduction to any audience in Scotland apart from stating that for many years he has been the country’s pre-eminent singer songwriter and can truly be recognised as a national treasure. Internationally, he has carried the flag for Scottish folk music throughout the World and, having closed the Commonwealth Games ceremony in Glasgow in 2014, tonight he is closing our Feast! Sit back and enjoy one of the great performers “at work”.
The Crazy Gang are in town tonight! Roberto Cassani, Owen Nicholson and Dave Clelland, three very nearly middleaged goons, will display a dazzling array of male-pattern baldness, sartorial disgrace and hot musicianship for your entertainment. And we expect a huge dose of banter into the bargain. There will be banter with swing, swing with songs, songs with a smile and smiles on your faces! An act you will remember for some time, hopefully for the right reasons! Sit back and get your laughing muscles ready for this one.
A first-time visit to the Feast for this talented husband and wife duo who wowed the audience at a Club night two years ago with their brilliant musicianship, voices and stage presence. Dave Wilson’s outstanding songwriting and vocal ability are beautifully complimented by the powerful and emotional vocals of Kip Winter to give them an ever-increasing reputation throughout the British folk scene. Those vocals, combined with Dave’s guitar playing of the highest quality and Kip’s multi-instrumental skills, will provide us with a display of contemporary acoustic folk music at its very best, and always delivered with a smile!
We are delighted their appearance is also the official launch in Scotland of their new album “Ashes and Dust” which was released in March.
Sunday Children’s Show
ARTIE’S TARTAN TALES
A real coup for the Feast! The Singing Kettle’s creator and former star, Artie Trezise is back in town with his exciting new production, Tartan Tales, featuring traditional songs and stories with a Scottish accent. The show will include action packed, enthralling and interactive songs such as Three Little Pigs and The Train To Glasgow, all delivered in a unique, charming and engaging style. There will be lots of joining-in and singing for all the audience, children and adults alike. A must show for the weekend!
