Skir­lie re­turn to Acous­tic Nights

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

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.
