Nick Mercer Jr @ Hootananny
Mar 5 @ 9:30 pm

Nick Mercer Jr

For most upstarts the fantasy of being a budding singer songwriter is often de railed rather quickly by the reality of itture and existence of struggle and uncertainty, but not for this young Scotsman. Having recently moved to the capital Jr is content with just singing his songs to anyone who is around to listen and is well aware that the use of his voice and melodies are the only thing he has to feed mouthes and pay bills.The situation he is in doesn’t bring him despair but creates a sense of hope that there might someday be another crowning of the poor. The fact of the matter is that these songs are strong and if you wrote them you would be a fool if you didn’t drop everything and walk with them down the very path he has chosen.

Andy Duncan @ Hootanannny
Mar 9 @ 9:30 pm

Andy Duncan is a well known face on the Inverness circuit. With over 20 years worth of gigs under his belt, you could say he was an accomplished musician in his own right, with many playing styles in his repertoire, not least for his rhythmic hand drumming on the Djembe.

His passion, however, lies in traditional Scottish folk songs and music and accompanied by the very talented local fiddle player, Rachel Campbell, you will hear some fantastic traditional jigs and reels sure to get the blood pumping.

Hò-rò @ Hootananny
Mar 11 @ 9:30 pm

Hò-rò: A phrase used as a movement in playing music before the development of written music; a form of “canntaireachd”.

 A young group incorporating new, innovative ideas from our own unique experiences and influences from our very own, cultural Scottish Trad music. Although the foundations of their music are to their national roots, they bring many styles and genres of music into their band: traditional Gaelic songs, their own material, Scottish tunes and they may even surprise you with a few tracks that you may recognize!
