Gig on Thursday evening Cotton Candy Music Club at The Dram, Woodlands Road, Glasgow

Added on Tuesday 20 Aug 2013

I'm playing a gig on Thursday (22nd August) at The Cotton Candy Music Club, in The Dram on Woodlands Road, Glasgow.

I'll be on the bill with Mark Copeland, Diane Jardine and Safetynett Flett. Big talents - I'm already a fan. More info.

Bearpit Brothers get ready to bite

I've been a bit quiet on the gig front for a while but I'm still busy making music; primarily working with Robert and Lawrence on the soon to be released Bearpit Brothers EP.

Here's a date for your diary; we will be launching The Bearpit Bothers EP on November 23rd at the Glad Cafe in the South Side of Glasgow. We're awfy bleedin' exicted about it. - and we're not planning a conventional gig; so if we manage to pull it off - it should be something a bit different to come along to.

About that gig

Hope to see you on Thursday if you can make it.

All the best, Jim
