Sunday 28th August
LES JOHNSON & ME
‘Les Johnson and Me’
The musical manifestation of the hopes, dreams and thoughts of Kenny Macdonald. His baritone voice, much his trademark, has oft been compared to such as gentleman Jim Reeves, Johnny Cash and Tennessee Ernie Ford, while interestingly unique, with a distinctly Glaswegian twang.
The songs, of tragedy, triumph and near redemption evoke real senses of finding, losing and finding again, things, feelings and images. Difficult to pin down in terms of a specific genre, the music of Les Johnson and Me has been variously described as urban country, folk blues, rockabilly, rock ’n’ roll and tragic- comedy.
Tonight, Kenny will be accompanied by the fabulous Harry and The Hendersons.
Hailing originally from Saltcoats in Ayrshire and based at the moment in Aberdeen, Dean Robinson is a fabulously bearded 22 year old singer-songwriter of great merit. He, albeit modestly, describes his songs and their presentation to you this evening as ‘dreamy folk songs coated with a rich blend of cello, djembe and flamenco guitar, channelled through a rag tag trio of musicians from all over Scotland’. His up to date compositions, delivered with a more traditional folk feel, will indeed delight any listener.
Megan Airlie is a 22 year old singer-songwriter from Glasgow. Her songs have been described in the likes of melancholic, romantic, folk tunes entailing stories of the people and the world around her. Megan, who possesses a truly unique, if at times somewhat haunting, vocal talent, which tonight she will accompany with guitar and ukulele. If you have not heard or seen Megan perform, tonight is the night you must.
