Lee Patterson: Stella Maris

ONE of our very favourite Scottish artists is a bit of an unsung hero. Stella Maris is the last album from Edinburgh singer/songwriter and although not a new release by any stretch of the imagination, it’s a fantastic collection of songs. Patterson’s vocal and instrumental skills combined with incredible songwriting talent man this album the perfect showcase for his work. Standout tracks for us are Coffin Belle and Winter...

Duncan McCrone: Colourblind

BASED just outside the G63 area, Scottish folk singer/songwriter Duncan McCrone and his band are no strangers having played well-received shows at Buchanan Memorial Hall.
