Bearpit Brothers

Although heavily influenced by early 60s ‘beat’ sounds they are a ‘thoroughly modern’ group – with a literate, quirky approach. Think early Beatles having a fight with Richard Hawley.

Exquisite guitar duelings with twang and reverb battling away.” Blabber ‘n’ Smoke.

A rare chance to see the hugely entertaining Bearpit Brothers perform live, simply not to be missed with Larry Alexander, Jim Byrne. Robert Ruthven and Angus Ruthven.

Support – will be from the super talented singer songwriter Ryan Morcombe and poet Stephen Watt.

Ryan Morcambe

Scottish Songwriter from West Lothian. Playing dustbowl blues with some wailing harmonica and jangling guitar. With a helpful dose of folk and pop. Influences include Donovan, Bert Jansch, Dylan, The Stones and of course, The Beatles. Recent tours have taken in gigs in Amsterdam, London, Liverpool and a performance at the Isle of Wight festival 2014.

“Ryan, a 26 year old whose muse seems to be an old bluesman from the 1940’s, Bleeding dry is his best tune – a country guitar, rumbling Animal’s style ryhthm and bass, and a bitter lyric: ‘Death you can save me from this life.'” Rick Fulton, Daily Record.

Stephen Watt

Stephen Watt was born in Dumbarton in 1979, and is a Scottish poet and spoken word artist. He is the author of the poetry collection ‘Spit’, and was crowned the Poetry Rivals Slam Champion in Peterborough in 2011 after beating 8,000 entrants. Since then, Stephen’s online video “Rubik” collected the StAnza Digital International Poetry prize, the Tartan Treasures award, and a clutch of titles both on the page and stage. Performances at Doune The Rabbit Hole, Eden, Wickerman and the Edinburgh Festival have introduced Stephen’s work to audiences across the country, while his written work continues to be published in countries as far as New York and Mexico.

In 2012, Milton Keynes Poet Laureate Mark Niel described Stephen as “an exciting new voice on the poetry scene who sees beauty where others see grit and grime”.

In April 2015, Stephen made his debut in Ireland as part of the unofficial Cuirt Literature Festival fringe show ‘Far From Literature, We Were Reared’ at the Roisin Dubh in Galway.
