  • Ad-Lib present 'Shout! The Mod Musical' 30th June/1st July 2015

    Ad-Lib present 'Shout! The Mod Musical' 30th June/1st July 2015

    Tues 30th June and Weds 1st July 2015

    Perth's amazing equal access theatre company brought their all singing all dancing show to the Arts Club for two knock out nights! This hip comedy revue tracks the lives of five young women during the liberating days of London's Swinging Sixties, featuring hits from the divas of the decade: Downtown, Shout!, Son of a Preacher Man, Goldfinger and many more.  A hugely talented cast had the crowd on their feet dancing and for a rapturous standing ovation!

    Ad-Lib Theatre Arts is a drama and music organisation that prides itself on its 'Arts For All' ethos. The company is open to anyone regardless of age or ability.  

  • AMWF - 2nd Oct 2014

    AMWF - 2nd Oct 2014

    The release in 2014 of their double album 'Live at the Gardyne' has cemented AMWF's position as one of the finest new bands to come out of Scotland in recent years.  Their reputation has built over the past two years through appearances at festivals - including the rare ability to fill a T in the Park tent for the opening slot on a Sunday - some increasingly high-profile radio sessions such as Bob Harris on Radio 2 and a collaboration with Dougie Maclean on a new version of Caledonia.

    The live set up is fluid, with changing lead singers and each member having the ability to pick up pretty much any instrument on stage, which includes double bass, banjo, mandolin, bouzouki and harmonium.

    As a reviewer said after a live performance near Inverness "There is something inexplicably natural about AMWF ... If you get the opportunity go see them, you won’t be disappointed." 

    We saw them play at the Belladrum Festival and all anyone could say was "Just imagine that in the Byre" - and it was quite something.   The band also played a short acoustic set in the Inchyra Arts Club gazebo at Belladrum 2014. 

  • And Then Come The Nightjars - 19th/20th April 2017 - SOLD OUT

    And Then Come The Nightjars - 19th/20th April 2017 - SOLD OUT

    This nationally acclaimed touring production from Perth Theatre in association with Bristol Old Vic, Theatre By The Lake and Theatre 503, came to Inchyra for two nights, with a sold out second night.

    A soaringly emotional two hander set against the foot and mouth epidemic.  As the disease sweeps through the British countryside, communities are thrown into chaos. Michael watches, in grief stricken disbelief, the shooting of his beloved cows. He also watches his friend brandish the gun. 

    By turns heart-breaking and hilarious, And Then Come the Nightjars is a tender portrait of male friendship and a requiem to rural life. Audiences on both nights were silenced by the harrowing scenes and roaring at the very British characters laughing in the face of adversity.  

     

    'A savagely funny and sad play directed with real delicacy' The Guardian 

    'Intensely funny… a small gem of a play from a writer to watch' The Daily Telegraph. 

    Winner of the Theatre 503 Playwriting Award. 

    Fourteen ★★★★ reviews including: ★★★★ The Stage, ★★★★The Evening Standard, ★★★★The Guardian, ★★★★The Telegraph, ★★★★Time Out and six Off West End 

    nominations - including Best Director, Most Promising Playwright and Best Set Design.

  • Barbara Dickson w/support Anthony Toner - 14th June 2017 - SOLD OUT

    Barbara Dickson w/support Anthony Toner - 14th June 2017 - SOLD OUT

    In a one off special for Inchyra, Barbara Dickson and Nick Holland left a capacity audience spell bound. The pair let the words and melodies take centre stage as they performed a wonderful range of material drawing on Barbara’s folk roots, contemporary greats, and some of her classic hits.

    This true star of the Scottish music scene enjoyed mainstream chart success with hits including ‘Answer Me’, ‘Another Suitcase in Another Hall’, ‘Caravan’ and the million-selling number one single, ‘I Know Him So Well’.  As Scotland’s best-selling female album artist she has earned 6 platinum, 11 gold and 7 silver albums and cemented her status as one of the UK’s best-loved performers . Her stage career has included the roles of the original Mrs Johnstone in Willy Russell’s long-running musical, ‘Blood Brothers’ and as Viv Nicholson in ‘Spend Spend Spend,’ both of which have won her an Olivier award for ‘Best Actress’. Barbara was awarded an OBE by Her Majesty the Queen in the 2002 New Year’s Honours for her services to music and drama and she continues to record and to play to sold-out audiences.

    Nick Holland joined Barbara’s touring band in the mid 2000’s playing keyboards and adding vocals on her ‘Full Circle’ album, the first to feature the style of music she now performs. Barbara and Nick recently started working as a duo with Barbara on guitar and piano and Nick on keyboards – adding harmonies to Barbara’s own wonderful vocals. They have performed this way in numerous venues including cathedrals, festivals and theatres and developed an intimate rapport with each other and the audience.

    Supporting Barbara on the night was Northern Ireland's Anthony Toner.  Anthony is one of Belfast’s most revered songwriters – an artist acclaimed as much for his insightful and poetic lyrics as for his mastery of finger-style guitar and engaging onstage patter. His first single ‘Sailortown’ – released in 2008 - has become one of Northern Ireland’s most requested radio songs, and he has followed it with a string of heart-filled songs just as memorable, including ‘East of Louise’, ‘Well Well Well’, ‘The Road to Fivemiletown’ and most recently ‘Great Big World’. Six albums into his career, he was shortlisted for the inaugural 2014 Northern Ireland Music Prize and has captivated audiences from Belfast to Toronto, by way of Nashville and Austin, sharing the stage along the way with everyone from Barbara to country music heroes Guy Clark and Nanci Griffith and blues/jazz superstar Van Morrison.

    Blues In The Byre ft. The Lewis Hamilton Band - 23rd April 2015

    Thursday 23rd April 2015    

    Blues in the Byre featured the amazing Lewis Hamilton Band - fast gaining a reputation as one of the finest young blues singers and guitarists in the country.

    Comedy in the Coo Shed - Jo Caulfield - 5th Dec 2014

    Award-winning comedian Jo Caulfield’s hilarious new show. 

    'Cut-throat wit and a razor-sharp tongue'

    THE TIMES

    Jo’s always wondered why anger is seen as such a bad thing. When life presents such irritations as vacuous celebrities, endless TV quiz shows, over friendly shop-assistants, emotionally 'challenged' men, drunken girlfriends who always pick the wrong partner, and a husband who continually quotes The Godfather, surely having a good rant - and a good laugh - is the only sensible reaction? Enjoy your anger.

    Best Female Stand-Up (Chortle Awards), star of Radio 4’s hugely popular Jo Caulfield’s Speakeasy, and seen on Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow,Mock The Week, Have I Got News For You, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, The Apprentice: You’re Fired and BBC1’s The Politics Show, this is a fantastic night out, for men and women alike.

    'Feisty, funny and wonderfully bitchy'

    THE OBSERVER

    ‘One of Britain’s smartest comics. She never fails to nail the laugh’

  • Danny & The Champions of the World - Mon 4th Dec 2017

    Danny & The Champions of the World - Mon 4th Dec 2017

    Unfortunately, due to a sudden and serious family illness Danny & The Champions of the World have been left with no choice but to cancel their Scottish shows and return to London.  Therefore tonight's show at Inchyra will not be going ahead. 

     

    We've been working towards getting these heroes to Inchyra for quite a while and we're delighted to have finally made it work.  Monday 4th December will be a day writ large in the Arts Club history books!   

    If you haven't yet heard of the Danny & The Champs, consider influences from Bruce Springsteen to Tom Petty, from Southside Johnny to John Mellencamp, and that will set the scene. Add into that great stage presence and a winning way with an audience and you'll see why they are constantly in demand. 

    This UK tour backs up the release of the band's latest album 'Brilliant Light'.

    Check out this YouTube link to see what people say about them and listen to a bit of D&TCs.

     And we're blown away that we're also bringing you the incredible William The Conqueror in the support slot. 

  • Dom Pipkin 'Smokin' Boogie - 18th Apr 2018

    Dom Pipkin 'Smokin' Boogie - 18th Apr 2018

    One of the most authentic and spirited players of blues and New Orleans piano in Europe today, Dom Pipkin has appeared live all around the world, winning and wowing fans with his electrifying live performances.

    His musical life’s journey has culminated in the creation of his solo show “Smokin’ Boogie - Tales of the Big Easy, Bourbon & Bad Boys” - New Orleans piano from its very beginnings in the brothels of the early jazz age through the joyous RnB boom of the 50s, marked by artists such as Fats Domino and Professor Longhair, into the heady drug-fuelled excesses and funk of James Booker and the “Nite Tripper” Dr John.

    A mixture of stories, humour, and unfiltered raw blues piano, the show was a  massive hit with an enthusiastic Inchyra audience.  Pipkin is an engaging performer and held an appreciative crowd spell bound with his obvious love of the genre and his consummate skill on the piano. 

    "I can't hold a candle to this guy!" JAMIE CULLUM

    "When Dom plays, magic happens."  PALOMA FAITH

     

  • Double Bill: Ben Glover and Angel Snow 5th March 2015

    Double Bill: Ben Glover and Angel Snow 5th March 2015

    Ben Glover has been hailed as the new David Gray.  From his roots in a small coastal village in Northern Ireland, Ben traded a degree in law to pursue music.   Now living in Nashville, he has been called "one of the finest writers in Ireland today".

    In the past year he has garnered rave reviews for both concerts and albums and played in Belfast, London, Glasgow, Copenhagen, Oslo, Edinburgh, Dublin, New York, Turin and Brussels as well has dates at the famed Hotel Cafe in Los Angeles and the legendary Bluebird Cafe in Nashville.

    His new album, 'Atlantic', bring him back to his Irish roots and bear fruits from collaborations with Gretchen Peters and Mary Gauthier.   The result is his finest offering yet.

    'Ben Glover's new album Do We Burn The Boats? is an absolute triumph' THE IRISH NEWS

    '.. hints somehow of Paul Simon, KT Tunstall, Villagers perhaps, and even, gulp, Coldplay.   It's a strangely satisfying mix.' THE DAILY MIRROR

    "... shades of an on-form Ryan Adams." THE TELEGRAPH

    Listen here

     

    Rising Nashville star Angel Snow has persevered with her music waiting, like many, for the break.   Meeting acclaimed star Alison Krauss brought that break and an introduction from Alison to her brother Vik resulted in a 'cool creative chemistry' and some wonderful songs.   Three ended up on the new Alison Krauss & Union Station album and eight are on Angel's own sophomore album.

    If you caught Peter Bradley Adams, Robby Hecht and David Berkeley at the Arts Club earlier in 2014, then Angel is an artist for you.

  • Dougie Maclean and The Mae Trio - 5th November 2015 - SOLD OUT

    We were delighted to have been chosen as the venue for this amazing show.   With their roots firmly planted in folk tradition, Australian award-winning band The Mae Trio are a breath of fresh air on the contemporary folk scene.

  • Dr John Cooper Clark - 9th June 2015

    Dr John Cooper Clark - 9th June 2015

    with special guest Mike Garry

    The legendary Salford Bard visited Glencarse and gave an epic performance. With a mixture of his classic verse, extraordinary new material, hilarious ponderings on modern life, good honest gags, riffs and chat, this was a chance to witness a living legend at the top of his game.

    John Cooper Clarke shot to prominence in the 1970s as the original people's poet, and emerged as one of the leading voices of youth culture.   Thanks to his biting, satirical, political and very funny verse, delivered in a unique rapid-fire performance style, he became a seminal influence on the punk movement.    His impact far transcended that cultural moment though, and John became the world's leading alternative literary figure, whose work is loved and recognised on a global scale.

    His book "Ten Years in an Open Neck Shirt" is one of the most successful poetry books of all time.   His words have been indelibly inked into the minds of millions of teenagers thanks to his poetry being place on the UK GCSE syllabus.   He was awarded an honorary doctorate from Salford University and his words were chosen by the makers of the Sopranos as the soundtrack to closing scenes of the penultimate episode.

    His career has spanned cultures, audiences, art forms and continents.

  • Earl Okin - 3rd May 2017

    Earl Okin - 3rd May 2017

    He's a joy! He is classic! He is a must!"  RUSSELL HUNTER

     

    Jazz and cabaret legend Earl Okin performed at Inchyra during a short tour celebrating his 70th birthday.  He first learnt his stagecraft in folk clubs and when they were replaced by comedy clubs, Earl moved effortlessly from one to the other and has been a headline act on the unforgiving UK alternative comedy circuit for decades, highly respected by all his fellow performers, young and old.  Expect jazz, cabaret and definitely a few laughs as this highly regarded and seasoned entertainer struts our stage.  

    He began, however, at the Comic Strip, alongside, Rik Mayall, French & Saunders, Nigel Planer et al. Among his admirers are such names as Billy Connolly (who likewise began his career in folk-clubs), Sacha Baron Cohen and Eddie Izzard (at whose clubs Earl headlined when they were both starting out).

    Among his American admirers are such established names as Emo Philips and Rick Overton. Earl has probably performed more ‘encores’ than just about anyone around and his blend of comedy and music (Tom Lehrer was one of his influences) is in demand literally around the world.  Earl has performed at such festivals as Juste Pour Rire in Montreal, the Adelaide Fringe in Australia and Humorologie in Belgium with equal success.  He regularly performs in Sweden, Germany, Austria and Holland…and at such famous US clubs as The Comedy Store, Caroline’s, The Improv. and The Ice House.

    For 18 years straight, Earl performed at the internationally famous Edinburgh Festival Fringe,consistently coming away in profit…a major achievement, as any Edinburgh performer will agree!

    Last but not least, Earl is in high demand for both corporate and private parties, having entertained not only Queen Elizabeth II but the king and queen of Sweden, too.

    As with everything else he does, Earl Okin’s show is unique!
     

    "The Festival is really under way. Earl Okin is back for his 11th consecutive year. He is, if anything, funnier than ever, just as amazing on both guitar and piano, and his 'trumpet' style is still mind blowing. To a most appreciative audience he exercised his magic again. Age does not matter for he appeals to all from 17 to senility. This year's show is 'Nothing To Do With Sex Whatsoever' and if you believe that you'll believe anything.  For much of the time you think he's only ad-libbing, but slowly realise that you are in the presence of a master of the art of cabaret. The man is unmissable as singer, songwriter, Jazz musician, comedian and, possibly my favourite this year, as a dance-track singer. He's a joy! He is classic! He is a must!
    Russell Hunter, reviewing Earl Okin at the Edinburgh Fringe

    Far, Far From Ypres - 9th Nov 2017 - SOLD OUT

    A largely amateur cast received a standing ovation for this poignant sell out evening of song, poetry and music dedicated to the memory of those who fell in the Great War 1914-1918 and told through the story of a Scottish Everyman.

  • Gangstagrass (w/support Rodney Brannigan)- Sat 19th November 2016

    Gangstagrass (w/support Rodney Brannigan)- Sat 19th November 2016

     

    Gangstagrass can be found ripping up stages and blowing minds wherever they appear. Their explosive live performances have created a buzz at the world famous SXSW, New York's CMJ and on tours across the USA. Now they are coming to Europe with emcees R-Son and Dolio! and we were unbelievably stoked that they came to the Byre.

    The Gangstagrass sound reached a huge audience when Long Hard Time To Come became the theme tune for hit TV series, Justified, now in its fourth season. "There are a lot more people out there with Jay-Z and Johnny Cash on their ipod playlists than you think.” says Rench, mastermind behind the genre breaking sensation.

    The same live bluegrass band approach was used to make Lightning On The Strings, Thunder On The Mic, a full length album with T.O.N.E-z, the emcee featured in the Justified theme song. The second album, Rappalachia, featured multiple rappers and country singers, laying the ground work for the 2014 release Broken Hearts & Stolen Money.

    Having no desire to simply coast on the success of previous releases, Gangstagrass released their fifth official album, American Music, in April 2015.  Featuring a collection of standout original cuts and traditional fo9lk anthems - with a twist of course! - American Music once again finds the artists breaking new ground, while also playing tribute to their cast of American songwriting heros.

    • Gretchen Peters - Sunday 5th April 2015 - SOLD OUT

      Gretchen Peters - Sunday 5th April 2015 - SOLD OUT

      It gave us the very greatest pleasure to welcome two time Grammy nominee Gretchen Peters, fresh from being inaugurated into the Nashville Songwriters Hall Of Fame this October, to the Arts Club on Easter Sunday.

      Since the release of her “career album" (NPR), 2012’s Hello Cruel World, Gretchen Peters has been in near-constant motion, touring for the past two years and releasing a live DVD and CD, Woman On The Wheel, in early 2013. Since 2012 she’s appeared at the Glastonbury, Isle of Wight and Cambridge Folk Festivals; and in addition to headlining her own sold-out tours, she’s supported country and folk legends Guy Clark, Arlo Guthrie and John Prine (duetting with the latter at several shows).

      The latest accolade for the Nashville-based singer-songwriter will be her induction into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in October 2014. There she’ll join the list of 192 existing inductees which includes Johnny Cash, Rodney Crowell, Don & Phil Everly, Woody Guthrie, Merle Haggard, Tom T. Hall, Harlan Howard, Kris Kristofferson, Dolly Parton, Jimmy Webb and Hank Williams.

      Peters has risen to the top of her craft by writing and recording songs that explore the deep corners of life with empathy and integrity. She has accumulated accolades as a songwriter for artists as diverse as Etta James, Bonnie Raitt, The Neville Brothers, Patty Loveless, George Strait, Bryan Adams and Faith Hill. Of her own recordings, the Associated Press said, “this is not jukebox music - the stuff that exists to fill in the pauses in conversation. This IS the conversation.”

      Her own peers may be her biggest fans, though; Rodney Crowell (her duet partner on Hello Cruel World) called the record "beautiful, brave and poetic", while her frequent collaborator Tom Russell, called it "the best record I’ve heard in many, manyyears." A recent review of her 2013 “Woman On The Wheel” UK tour called her live performance “glorious, uplifting, heart-rendingly beautiful... an affirmation of positive human experience through endured pain.”

      Her much-anticipated new album, Blackbirds, was released on 9th February to rave reviews.

As part of American Sound Studio’s legendary house band The Memphis Boys, Gene Chrisman and Bobby Woods provided the chops on such pivotal records as Dusty In Memphis, In The Ghetto, Suspicious Minds and Dark End Of The Street, cutting their teeth in sessions with Wilson Pickett, Aretha Franklin and Dionne Warwick.

        “They’re old guys but they’re amazing,” Jake says. “It was ten to five and then that’s it. They'd pack up and we’d done two or three tunes. It was a mad vibe being from England and meeting these absolute legends and then cutting some tracks with them.”

        To coincide with the album’s release Jake stepped out for this intimate solo acoustic tour in November.  We were delighted to welcome him to Inchyra for one of only four Scottish dates on the tour.  The Byre welcomed the largest audience to date for a truly memorable night - with support from rising star Georgie.

        Jeffrey Foucault - 29th January 2015

        Celtic Connections came to Inchyra as Jeffrey Foucault played the Arts Club ahead of an appearance at the UK's premier Celtic music festival earlier in the week.

        It would appear that in Jeffrey Foucault, the Inchyra Arts Club has found yet another well-kept secret from the world of Americana. The world weary troubadour entertained a large and responsive crowd to a humdinger of a show encompassing Country, Blues, Gospel and Soul, expertly accompanied by the man on the ‘suitcase drum kit’ - Billy Conway. Foucault is an immensely expressive singer with some impressively personal material. The Byre is an intimate space, ideally suited to Jeffry Foucault’s style of storytelling, made even more intimate when he stepped out from behind the microphone to perform entirely unaided.

        We'll leave it to our audience members to give you an idea of what a success it was:

         

        "I just had to write to tell you how much we enjoyed Jubovski and the whole evening at The Byre.  Wow!  Peter, Liz and Jub were outstanding.  For sheer exuberance, vitality and musicality  they were an absolute joy to listen to and what a privilege and surprise to find such a performance on our doorstep in Perthshire!  At the time I wondered whether your introduction might have been slightly overblown but the half was not told us;  thank you both so much for finding and bringing such an amazing performance.  A subsequent look at their websites, including the Goldfinch Foundation made fascinating reading too.  What an impressive trio.

        The whole Byre experience was a treat from start to finish with a wonderful atmosphere and I loved your informal and relaxed layout.  Supper was delicious, beautifully presented and was just right. Your staff and helpers were so friendly and smiling too which added greatly to the atmosphere.  All in all, one of the best evening’s entertainment [we] have had in a long time."

        Job done!

         

         

        NY5A0147-X2

        And from another guest:

         

        "Just to say what a great evening you organised last night at The Byre.  Jubovski oozed excellent, stirring music with a entertaining and varied programme delivered with style and charm throughout.   Dinner was most welcome and good.    Looking forward to the next one!"

         

        NY5A0182-X2

        The programme finished with a standing ovation and cries for 'More!' - and the 

        trio duly obliged with a wonderful encore.

        We might be biased but we think there is a strong argument for sayign that the Arts Club is the most beautiful venue in Scotland!

        And they're off!   Kicking things off with 'Night In The Box', the set list ran on to 'Traveller', 'Take Another Ride', 'Oh My God', 'War', 'Waking up Sideways', 'I Don't Know', 'Gambler', 'Panic Day', 'Secret Tells A Lie' and 'Betrayal'.   It didn't disappoint a crowd who knew all the words to every one of the band's great songs and anthems.

        A fabulous night at Inchyra as Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman performed in the intimate surroundings of the Stable Room at Inchyra.  The duo have long established themselves as one of the UK folk scene’s most rewardingly enduring partnerships and this performance only served to underline that. Twice recent winners of the BBC Radio 2 Folk Award for Best Duo – 2016 & 2013 – the couple’s intimacy and strength of passion on stage have won them many fans and an enviable reputation as ‘Songwriters par excellence’- (fRoots), whose greatly varied original songs cover such subjects as wicked mermaids, Norwegian legends and a lonely whale.

         

        The duo also performed for an Inchyra Arts Club Tree Room Session which can be seen on Vimeo.

        KT Tunstall chooses to live and create in the moment. This impulsivity courses through her catalogue and performances, defining classics like the GRAMMY Award-nominated 'Black Horse & The Cherry Tree', 'Suddenly I See', 'Hold On', 'Saving My Face', and many more. This urgency also drives the Scotland-born adn now Los Angeles-based songstress' forthcoming fifth full-length studio album - to be release this autumn on Virgin Records UK.

        American roots rock band Larkin Poe, fronted by sisters Rebecca and Megan Lovell, released their latest album Venom & Faith in November. Featuring strong southern harmonies, heavy electric guitar riff and slide guitar they are often touted as "the little sisters of the Allman Brothers".  The band performed at the 2014 and 2016 Glastonbury Festival and were voted "Best Discovery of Glastonbury 2014" by the UK's The Observer.  We are delighted to be bringing this standout band to the Byre in 2019. 

        "One of Rolling Stone's '10 Artists To Watch 2018' Larkin Poe established themselves as a singular new sound in roots rock, blending Haim-esque vocal harmonies with thick, gnarly guitar riffs that leave no doubt as to how they found a fan in someone like Costello." ROLLING STONE

          Leo Moran and Anto Thistlethwaite brought their two man show to Glencarse with songs from the Saw Doctors and the Waterboys, stories, laughs and more!

          The Saw Doctors need no introduction having been one of the country's favourite live bands for over 20 years.   The band have been having a bit of a 'time out' for the last two years and last year founding member Leo Moran and saxophonist, current Saw Doctor and founding member of the Waterboys, Anto Thistlethwaite took to the road as a duo - what started as a bit of fun has taken them as far as the US and Russia - and we are thrilled that they will be playing at the Arts Club on three date Scottish tour in March.

          Lucy Spraggan - 18th Oct 2017

           

          For Lucy Spraggan, 2017 had already been a year to remember. The singer-songwriter has already netted her fourth top 40 album and followed that success with a huge tour across the UK and Europe.  There was an amazing atmosphere in the Byre with nearly 400 ticket holders experiencing a fabulous show on the first night of the Scottish leg of this tour. 

          Described as ‘a triumph’ by The Sun, I Hope You Don’t Mind Me Writing was released in January 2017, charting at number 12 in the Official Top 40 Album Chart. It was the second release under her own label, CTRL Records.

          Frequently recognized as one of the leading lights in the LGBT community, Lucy has managed to build her fanbase to a new high, with more than 12,000 tickets sold for her recent Dear You tour. Lucy’s festival season was equally busy with shows confirmed at some of the UK’s leading festivals.

          Lucy appeared on the X Factor in 2012, since then her audition video has been viewed more than 40 million times. She achieved the unprecedented success of securing a top 20 single (Last Night) and top 40 album (Top Room at the Zoo) while still competing on the TV show. She was also the most Googled musician of 2012.

          Lucy immediately signed to Columbia and her debut album Join the Club was a top-ten success. Her next record We Are was released on her own label, after Spraggan opted to take the independent route. The album just missed out on a top twenty position.

          Lucy’s music-writing career began with Don Maclean and Kirsty McColl as her major influences, embellished with the folk riffs of Peter, Paul and Mary and taking on the punchy riffs of traditional R and B.

          Her name is now synonymous with the cross-border sound she calls AFLOP; the melodic middle ground where pop and acoustic folk meet, the toe-tapping interpretations of classic sounds and the harmony-heavy ballads that she pulls from modern rhythm and blues, turning the rattle of rap into sing-along folk-style numbers that are hard to forget.

          After releasing four albums in five years Lucy is probably due a rest, but she refuses to let up and the writing process is already underway for album number 5. Her live calendar is looking busier than ever and we were delighted to be a part of her Autumn tour.

          ***** The Herald ‘The most well-crafted and poignant comedy turns at this year’s Fringe’

          ***** The Mirror ‘Interesting, engaging and funny’


          What a night of class comedy in the Byre when Mark Steel brought his latest show, Who Do I Think I Am to Inchyra. This was a comedy tour de force as Mark kept the audience in rapt attention from kick off at just gone 8pm until the end of a rapturously received encore at nearly 11! 

          "It never really bothered me that I’d never met my mum.  It never occurred to me I needed to meet her to ‘find out who I was’, as it didn’t seem likely I’d discover I was someone different to who I thought I was. Could it turn out I was three stone lighter than I thought, or I spoke Italian or supported Arsenal or had a fear of Liquorice Allsorts?  But after the birth of my own son, I realised it’s quite an event to have a child, and she may well remember giving birth to me, and maybe even the adoption."

          **** The Guardian ‘he has got an amazing tale to tell’

          **** The Independent ‘essential viewing’

          Previously, Mark has written and presented Mark Steel’s In Town on BBC Radio 4 and toured it live around the UK. Mark has presented the BAFTA nominated Mark Steel Lectures for BBC2, is a regular on BBC One’s Have I Got News For You and Radio 4’s Newsquiz. He’s also appeared on BBC2’s QI and Room 101.

          Martin Harley & Daniel Kimbro - Tues 7th March 2017

          Martin Harley is quite simply one of the best blues guitar players around at the moment, with a burgeoning global reputation. Martin played at Inchyra in 2015 and anyone who was there that night will tell you that it was something very special. 2017's return was no less impressive and the added bonus of the accomplished bass playing of Daniel Kimbro only added to the experience. 

          Since last visiting us, Martin has released the widely acclaimed album 'Live at Southern Ground' in a collaboration with Daniel (Jerry Douglas, Larkin Poe) on upright bass. This tour celebrated the release of their latest collaboration - 'Static in the Wires'.

          Martin Stephenson & The Daintees - 17th May 2017

          Martin Stephenson has been one of the UK’s best-loved musicians for 30 years. Stephenson’s “must see” live performances are an exuberant tour-de-force combining heart-in-your-mouth intimacy with playful humour and warm self-deprecation.

          The Daintees’ critically acclaimed 1986 debut Boat to Bolivia opened up an always interesting story. It showcased Stephenson’s songwriting, poetic romanticism and spiritual depth – so marking him out as a soulful cream of the leftfield crop during the self-obsessed 1980s. (A celebratory tour of the 30 year anniversary of this phenomenally successful album toured the UK at the end of last year). Never pandering to a particular scene, Stephenson’s lightness of touch on a varied mix of musical styles was immediately apparent. His path was destined to be a lifelong journey through the music he loved: folk, ragtime, jazz, rockabilly, show tunes, punk-pop and country.

          The NME said of Martin’s song craft that he “builds bridges between love and hate, cradle and grave, folk and pop, past and present.”

          Stephenson’s restless troubadour spirit has amassed an extraordinary catalogue of some 40 albums and he is a gifted, entertaining and much-loved performer.

          Patsy Reid & Friends - 17th Sept 2014

          Perthshire fiddler and singer Patsy Reid is one of the most admired musicians in the UK.  We were thrilled to welcome Patsy to the Arts Club following the release of this year's highly acclaimed solo album The Brightest Path.

          In the last couple of years, the former Breabach fiddle player has performed extensively with BBC Radio 2 Folk Award 2013 winners Kathryn Tickell and Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman, The Cecil Sharp Project and Zakir Hussain's Pulse of the World.  She also contributed violin, viola and cello to albums by Duncan Chisholm, Bella Hardy, the Treacherous Orchestra and Tim Edey, to name just a few.

          Patsy now takes centre stage - accompanied by an equally accomplished band - to bring us tunes and songs from The Brightest Path, her first solo recording since 2008's rapturously received Bridging The Gap.  The album features freshly  recovered traditional Scottish melodies from the Atholl Collection, alongside self-penned and contemporary material that demonstrates Patsy's ability to virtually sing through her instrument.   Combining skills and techniques from both folk and classical disciplines, Lau's Aidan O'Rourke describes her as having "an accuracy and tone that many fiddlers only dream of.  She has truly mastered her instrument."

          Patsy will be joined by Matheu Watson on guitar and mandolin, Alistair Iain Paterson on piano and Signy Jakobsdottir on percussion.

          Peatbog Faeries - 26th Oct 2016


          Skye's great Peatbog Faeries returned to Inchyra as they celebrated an amazing 25 years in the business

          We were delighted that great Peatbog Faeries chose to return to Inchyra as they mark this incredible milestone with a country wide tour.  The Faeries were last here in the autumn of 2014 when they produced a performance that was definitely one of the best nights in the Byre and this was the first return show for a headline act at Inchyra.

          Hailing from the Isle of Skye, the Peatbog Faeries are the figurehead trailblazers of the Celtic Dance Music renaissance. Drawing upon a dazzling myriad of influences from traditional jigs and reels through jazz, hip hop, reggae and more, they take traditional Scottish music and bring it fresh-faced and breathless into the 21st century.  They have toured the world taking their inventive and unique brand of music and light show to audiences far and wide, never failing to fill the floor and delight the crowd.

          This was high octane Celtic dance music as you’ve never heard it before and the crowd danced ... and danced!  One guest emailed us to say thanks for the gig - and for adding 9,000 steps to her Fitbit!

          The Peatbog Faeries are Peter Morrison (pipes and whistles), Ross Couper (fiddle), Tom Salter (guitar), Innes Hutton (bass, percussion) Graeme Stafford (keyboards) and Stuart Haikney (drums).

          Peatbog Faeries - 8th Nov 2014

          Based on the Isle of Skye, the Peatbog Faeries are one of the best known names in Scottish contemporary folk music.  

          In 2012 they were a nominee for "Best Live Act" at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, having already twice won "Live Act of the Year" at the Scottish Traditional Music Awards.    They've taken their own individual brand of Scottish tunes to audiences around the world, from European Festivals, to Asia, Africa, America, Canada and Australia.  The Peatbogs have recorded six studio albums.   From headlining the Avalon Stage at Glastonbury to representing Scotland in Sri Lanka for the Commonwealth Games bid, the Faeries are an intrinsic part of current Scottish culture.  

          Their music embodies many styles and influences, including folk, electronica, rock and jazz, - but their main influence is traditional celtic music. The band's unique sound is created through a mix of programmed effects and traditional celtic arrangements, played on bagpipes, fiddles, and whistles.   One thing is for sure - there's never a dull moment in a Faeries show!

          Peatbog Faeries - Tues 23rd October 2018

          Skye's legendary trailblazers returned to Inchyra by popular demand making for a record-breaking THIRD appearance on the Byre stage.  We were absolutely delighted that the band chose to play Inchyra as one of a limited number of shows during 2018.

          “Nothing prepares you for the high octane music of the Peatbog Faeries. Powerful melodies are dextrously pumped out with a smart degree of techno attitude, while cross-rhythms ricochet over a heavy bass that hits you forcefully like a massive heart beat.”  The Scotsman

          Police Dog Hogan - 13th Dec 2014

          The Sunday Times has described them as “wonderful”; the Telegraph named them one of its ‘favourite new bands”; Radio 2 called them “a band to watch” and veteran DJ Johnnie Walker praises their gigs as “just a really good, fun time”.

          Their literate and superbly crafted songs veer from the wistful and poetic to flat-out, foot-stomping tales of doomed barbecues, French mustard and falling in love on a Tennessee highway.

          Founded in 2009 in, if they're honest, a bit of a bucket list moment, over the last year the band have suddenly found themselves very  popular indeed - which is no surprise as they are VERY good at what they do (incidentally, they are also VERY good at what they do when they're not playing in the band as the members include a Guardian columnist, a barrister and the MD of a highly successful advertising company!)   PDH is now gigging in earnest, and finding themselves sold out at shows across the south.   Buoyed by a rapturous reception at festivals last summer, with appearances at Cornbury, Camp Bestival, Larmer Tree and Kendal Calling, among others, this year sees them on a full festival schedule through the summer and then a UK tour to promote a brand new album being released this autumn.
