Popular singer makes a return to Stonelaw
The popular singer John Hinshelwood is set for a return to Rutherglen.
He will be playing at the latest event in the Acoustic Nights at the Meeting Place series of shows at Stonelaw Church this coming Friday (April 29).
Over the last three decades the Lanarkshire based singer/ songwriter has penned finely crafted, country tinged songs that have firmly established his reputation as a writer and as a performer.
He has worked with, among others, ex Byrd Gene Parsons and the legendary Scottish songwriter Rab Noakes, as well as sharing a stage with many distinguished artists including Roger McGuinn, Tim O’Brien, Darrell Scott, and Kate Campbell.
His live appearances have included Celtic Connections, Highland Festival, Wembley Country Festival, Perth’s Southern Fried Festival, and the Summertyne Festival in Newcastle, in addition to headlining at most of the main folk clubs in Scotland and many other venues across the folk/ country/Americana music scene.
He has released the CDs Holler til Dawn in 2002 and Shattered Pleasures in 2009, the latter a collaboration with Canadian singer Sandra Gellatly, and both received widespread critical acclaim.
His latest recording, Lowering The Tone, released in April 2014, has also met with similar universal approval, with the track What’s Left Is What’s Right, reached number 4 in the British/ Irish Independent Country music chart.
The current line- up of the John Hinshelwood Band is John Hinshelwood on acoustic guitar and vocals, Tim Black on acoustic and electric guitars, mandolin and vocals and Ed McGlone on bass, Chapman stick and vocals.
Support comes from the Mairs Family Band.
Doors open at 7pm and the show starts at 7.30pm.
Entry is a £5 donation, with tea, coffee and home baking included.
