Jamie Button – Live
Wednesday 29th May from 9pm in the Ferry Inn bar
Glasgow based musician, singer and songwriter Jamie Button will be bringing us an intimate gig in the Ferry Inn bar. If you’ve been with us for live music before you may know him as one half of the ‘Button Boys’ who’ve graced the Ferry Inn bar serval time with their fab music. Jamie will be back with some of his own material this time – and bringing along fellow musician Scott Forsyth also – always a great night to be had when these two are playing!
“This May I’ll be heading out on the road to the highlands to do some intimate gigs. All shows will feature my buddy Scott Forsyth on lead guitar. Can’t wait for this!”
Thursday 25th July from 9pm in the Ferry Inn bar
Indie folk duo JINSKI are back fro the second time at the Ferry Inn! Based in Newcastle Upon Tyne, they are song writer Stephen Wegrzynski and musician Dave Kennedy, a partnership forged from acoustic roots and the love of a strong melody. Their music touches the borders of folk, country, and pop, keeping alive the song writing tradition whilst remaining resolutely modern.
Playing ‘live’ with just two voices and two guitars JINSKI have been touring the UK, honing their craft, chalking up the miles and making new friends wherever they play. They have built a reputation for delivering music for the head and the heart that is full of passion, meaning and originality
SEALL Festival of Small Halls:
The SEALL Festival of Small Halls is an eight-day multi-artform winter festival bringing big music to small halls around Skye and Lochalsh with the emphasis on civic celebration – everyone is welcome. Part of the international network of Small halls, it is the first of its kind in Europe.
“We bring the best traditional musicians to our remote rural townships, using Scotland’s national day – St Andrew’s Day – as a reason to celebrate our unique Highland culture in the traditional way.
People, place and performance are the curatorial themes of the project which focuses on “family bonds” in the wider sense and promotes the relevance of Scotland’s traditional culture to present and future generations.
The project will take some of the country’s greatest trad musicians, a writer, visual artist and videographer to public spaces in remote rural areas, helping to join communities to each other and the rest of the world through celebration of civic pride and place, our Gaelic heritage, hospitality and friendship.”
