Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Jonathan Ged­des

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.
