Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Staff re­porter

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.
