Skirlie return to Acoustic Nights
A band that performs an eclectic mix of musical genres will take to the stage in Stonelaw Church next Friday.
Skirlie is a four-piece band that will perform in the next session of Acoustic Nights@ The Meeting Place on October 28.
The band takes its name from the Scots dish Skirlie, a mixture of oats and onions fried in butter which is normally added to a main course.
They say: “This is how we approach our music. Fundamentally Scottish with other things thrown in: Scots traditional, Celtic, transatlantic and toots.”
Skirlie will perform a mix of traditional and contemporary Scottish and Irish songs, plus a few American tunes, and some lovely songs written by Joe Howley, their guitarist.
Joe will be accompanied by whistles and percussionist Rab Ferris, slide guitar and mandolin player Kevin Patrick and Katherine Macleod, who performs flute, whistles and melodica.
The Mairs Family Band will be one of the support acts when the doors open at 7pm.
Tickets cost £ 5 and includes refreshments and homebaking.
