Lynnie Carson and Hammond's Folly

EP Launch - Saturday 26th March at The Wise Monkey, Great Western Road

Having previously supported Scottish artists such as Paulo Nutini and Stephen Lindsay, Lynnie and her band are now looking to start a following in their own right. With a sound harking back to Rumours era Fleetwood Mac, they are heavily influenced by The Band, Neil Young and Bob Dylan and are hoping to join their contemporaries Midlake and Fleet Foxes in popularizing melody and harmony once again in the charts.

Hammond's Folly are also in the running to play the Q The Music - Emerging Talent Tent at this year's Glastonbury Festival.

Drummer Gordy Turner has enjoyed a varied playing career, appearing on many releases both Major and Independent as well as honing a refined, powerful and visual stagecraft as an original member of Terra Diablo.

Bass Player Jade McAleny is 21, originally from govanhill she is an ex james watt music student who's skills were honed under the tuition of bass player Steph Greer (The Silencers, Kevin McDermott Orchestra) Jade says "Lynnie and I met after I played in a tribute to the 1978 film "The Last Waltz" at The Garage - our shared passion for The Band meant we started our own band together."

Fiona Shannon adds depth to the live sound by providing lush harmonies as well as screaming Hammond organ and piano parts. She has toured and worked extensively on the Scottish music scene, most notably of late tinkling the ivory's for Colin MacIntyre (a.k.a Mull Historical Society)

Graeme Bickett completes the line-up on lead guitar. Looking like Jim Morrison and playing like Lynsey Buckingham he's been the missing piece in our jig saw.
