18 Oct Ragged Glory
The band met several years ago at Nitten Folk Club in Newtongrange and
made their debut appearance in 2010 at the Acoustic Music Centre, as
part of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. That debut appearance at the Fringe
sold out. And Ragged Glory have repeated that feat every year since. The
band has also been involved in the immensely successful ‘Far Far from Ypres’.
Ragged Glory have always said that their purpose was to have fun, and they
found that singing good songs with strong harmonies helped towards that end.
25 Oct Jim King
Jim King has been singing folk songs since the sixties and writing songs for a good
years. These days he mostly performs his own stuff along with a handful of songs
wishes he had written. He likes to put stories into his songs. Sometimes the stories
sad, sometimes they're angry and sometimes they're fun.
Jim King is difficult to pigeon-hole and although he would happily accept the soubriquet
'folk singer', his performances are so much more wide ranging than that title can
