A BBC radio music award nominee is the latest act to come to Rutherglen to perform.
The latest Acoustic Nights at the Meeting Place in Stonelaw Parish Church will see Cup O’Joe performing on Friday, June 12, starting at 7.30pm.
This is a special event at the Meeting Place as part of their UK tour.
Cup O’Joe, from County Armagh, Northern Ireland, are 2015 BBC R2 Young Folk Award nominees.
Made up of two brothers, Cup O’Joe comprise Benjamin, Reuben and their sister Tabitha, who play an energetic style of bluegrass and gypsyjazz music.
They’ve been brought up attending music festivals and concerts from a young age. Reuben (18) plays guitar and mandolin, Benjamin (20) plays upright bass, and Tabitha (15) plays banjo and fiddle. Close family harmonies can be heard throughout their music.
They have released a first album Rough Terrain, and play at festivals and events throughout the year, and share their music with many different people.
A spokesman for Stonelaw said: “This is a night not to be missed.”
After appearing at the Open House Festival in Belfast, one reviewer said: “Even though they are still in their teens, their musical skills and prowess will make even the most seasoned musician take notice.
“Reuben, Tabitha and Benjamin Agnew could be mistaken for American-bornand- raised, but these three Armagh locals have merely caught a musical wind from the West and made it their own.”
Cup O’Joe will be supported by the Mairs Family Band on the night.
Entry is £5 (donation), and children go free. Coffee, tea and cakes are included.
