Kenny Speirs has been a well-known figure on the national and international folk circuit for over twenty five years ever since the John Wright Band burst onto the scene in the early nineties. From his beloved homeland of the Scottish Borders the band propelled Kenny from the pubs and clubs of his local area to some of the biggest festival stages throughout the U.K. and Europe. Turning professional in 1995, Kenny released seven albums with the JWB, earning a deserved reputation as a sensitive guitarist, singer and arranger, also finding time to release two solo albums to wide critical acclaim.

Kenny is also one of the leading figures of the Borders folk scene, from his early days reforming Peebles Folk Club and presenting the weekly folk programme on Radio Borders to the founding of Denholm Folk Club in 1993 which he still runs today. He is also Director of Denholm Folk Festival and the Scottish Borders Hogmanay Festival, The Land The Light The Locals.
Since losing his late partner Judy Dinning, Kenny decided to carry on with Real Time, and the band continues to enjoy huge success with Eilidh Grant taking on the main singing duties. It is only now, after a very emotional period of reflection, that Kenny has been inspired to write and release his first solo CD of wholly self-penned songs. 

Eilidh’s stunning voice beautifully renders both classic folk songs and original material. With a love for traditional and contemporary folk alike, underpinned by a passion for Burns, Eilidh has made a considerable impression on the British and European folk scenes. Her vocal style, with shades of a Caledonian Joni Mitchell, won her the Danny Kyle Award at the 2004 Celtic Connections festival. Her first solo gig was at the Star Folk Club in Glasgow and since then has gone on to perform at some of the best venues in the country and has shared the stage with some of the best and most well known musicians of today.

Tickets: members £5.00 and Guests £10.00.
