Duncan McCrone Band
Born in Glasgow, Duncan knew from a very early age that music would dominate his life. A milestone was his first song writing credit, in 1982, when the big-selling Scottish singer Valerie Dunbar released a single of 'Always Argyll', written by Duncan and a friend, Jimmy Jamieson. The song went on to be covered by over thirty artists in Scotland, Ireland and Australia, and Duncan has recorded it himself for the first time on this new album. The Clydesiders guitarist decided to call it a day in 1982 and Duncan stepped in, beginning an eighteen-year career with the band, during which he recorded seven albums and several singles with them, and appeared in many concerts and TV programmes around the UK and Europe. In 2001 he accepted an offer from a small Glasgow independent label to record his first solo album 'Just a Glasgow Boy ', a mix of studio tracks and songs from his live show.

Fil Campbell and Tom McFarland
This quote says it all. "Beautifully contrasting vocals, a unique mix of guitar and inventive percussion, original and contemporary songs, engaging choruses and the Irish gift of chat and craic – little wonder the distinctive sound of County Down based Fil Campbell and Tom McFarland has won fans around the world" We are excited to have them back as guests at our club.

Mile Roses
Born out of a musical interest in both British folk and the transatlantic connections to new country and Americana, this trio are now fast gaining a reputation across the UK folk scene. Their original songs and close three part harmonies are accompanied by guitars, fretless bass, cittern, mandolin and fiddles. Kate Bramley, Simon Haworth & Kari Macleod are three singer songwriters with eclectic and diverse roots yet somehow they seamlessly come together to create an utterly original and joyful sound. From haunting ballads to swinging country, celtic roots to driving folk choruses, this band are guaranteed to show audiences a good night out.
From 1st November The Club is moving to a new home!
Thistle Hotel, Milnathort
We are pleased to say we have now found a new home for the club. From November 1st our venue will be the Thistle Hotel, Milnathort. This hotel has a long history of folk singing and many will remember it from days gone by. The new owner Richard and his partner Susan have done a great deal to upgrade the interior but have aye been hankering for the return of folk music. The club will meet in the upstairs restaurant which is a swish and comfortable space with its own bar.
