Skirlie to play at acoustic session
A band that performs an eclectic mix of musical genres will take to the stage at Stonelaw Church on 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 said: “This is how we approach our music. Fundamentally Scottish with other things thrown in: Scots traditional, Celtic, transatlantic and roots.”
Skirlie will perform a mix of traditional and contemporary Scottish and Irish songs plus a few American tunes and some songs written by their guitarist Joe Howley.
Joe will be accompanied by whistles and percussionist Rab Ferris, slide guitar and mandolin player Kevin Patrick and Katherine Macleod, who plays flute, whistles and melodica.
The Mairs Family Band will be one of the support acts when the doors open at 7pm.
Tickets cost £5, includng home baking.
