We are delighted to welcome Curmudgeon back to West Street Arts Centre for the first concert of our Arts Festival. It is 2 years since they last played for us and that is 2 years too long.
Curmudgeon in Scots means a bad-tempered, cantankerous or difficult person. None of the members of this band lives up to that reputation. On the contrary, their music making and stage personalities are lively and engaging. Expect an evening of traditional tunes and song. Just the thing to get the toes tapping and to get in the mood for the rest of the festival.
The members of Curmudgeon are:
Andrew Macintyre is a well known figure on the Edinburgh folk scene. He plays small pipes and a variety of whistles as well as providing vocals , but not all at once!
Donald Gorman is an Edinburgh-based fiddle player specialising in traditional Scottish music. Donald also plays mandolin and mandola and adds backing vocals.
Laurie Brett hails from Essex but is now based in Port Seton, East Lothian. He is lead singer with the group and is a fine guitarist..
Tickets are £10 (£8 for PCAA members) from the cafe at 4 West Street or on line click here
