Lurach are four young musicians from different areas of Scotland who met whilst taking a traditional music course in Benbecula in the Outer Hebrides. They play both Scottish and Irish music, with a particular focus on Scottish Gaelic and Scots song. Their sound is heavily influenced by time spent in the Outer Hebrides, an area rich in music and song, as well as the places and experiences they have since encountered through music.

'Yuptae'

"Yuptae are a young band, hailing from the vibrant music scene in Glasgows South Side. They play a driving mix of flute, button accordion, banjo and fiddle, all held together with a superb backline of guitar, piano and drums.

Having cut their teeth as members of the famous St Rochs Ceili Band, before coming together to form Yuptae, they have a strong sense and respect for where their music comes from, and are not afraid to experiment with their fresh, exciting and innovative arrangements of traditional, contemporary and self-penned tunes.

This is a band who show great promise, and Im sure we can expect to hear great things from them in the future especially after their triumphant win at the 2011 Danny Kyle Open Stage"

Making Hay - CD Launch from Wing and a Prayer

Partick Folk Club, Friday 25th November, 2011

"Wing and a Prayer are a guitar based duo from Scotland. Dave Dick and Jim Gilbert play original songs with a country blues flavour, occasionally wandering into the Americana/Roots or Rhythm and Blues fields. They have played together all over the UK and Europe and are also respected solo acoustic guitarists. Although having played in Soul, Rhythm and Blues and Swing Jazz bands in their early days their real roots are in the folk clubs, cafes and pubs of their native Scotland. Recorded in the rural Dumfriesshire town of Moffat at Sound Sense Studios, this is their first professional recording. A long time in gestation, it shows their all-embracing approach to 20th century American music. Even the sprinkling of "covers", show a fresh perspective on such music, with an emphasis on retaining the original strong emotions of their blues heroes without falling into the common trap of "copyism". Their original songs take some of their favourite riffs and themes and combine them in a unique Wing and a Prayer sound. With no percussion used, they show the power of acoustic guitars to drive rhythms but retain lyrical integrity. From Muddy Waters to John Martyn, from Memphis Minnie to John Renbourn they've been Making Hay all the way..."

George Papavgeris

Friday 25 October 2013

"The most prolific of creative men; the grandest of hearts and maker of songs that sear into the soul, George is unique, to say the least. His lilting accent lends a fantastic clarity to his delivery that is matched by deceptively simple guitar work. Few have written so many songs that demand your full attention and then insist, in the finest of ways, on staying with you forever. (Graham Searle)"

Travelling the world with his guitar, harmonicas, and engaging wit, he sings the traditional songs of Scotland and his own masterfully crafted songs in a style which is modern and accessible, yet utterly authentic. He is highly regarded as an interpreter of the songs of Robert Burns, and has been described as “one of the finest singers in Scotland in any style”."
