Ted Christopher @ Hootananny
Apr 13 @ 9:30 pm

Ted Christopher

Ted Christopher is one of Scotland’s finest performers. He is a well-travelled and extremely versatile singer songwriter. He is equally at home whether singing heart-felt originals to a concert audience, belting out Scottish favourites to the Tartan Army or playing some of his huge pop/rock repertoire to a packed dance floor.

Unfazed by any size of audience, he played to 750,000 people on The Mall in Washinton DC. A week later there were 12 in Cowie Miners Welfare. How’s that for a quick reality check? And they were both great gigs!

Ted has been involved in the Scottish live music scene since he was fifteen. He is proud to be a native of The Royal and Ancient Burgh of Stirling (Stirling is now a city but he much prefers the previous description of his hometown) and was born and raised a mere claymore’s length from Stirling Castle and The National Wallace Monument.

Ted performs many solo gigs, sometimes uses a couple of musicians as “The Ted Christopher Band” and of course fronts “Bannockburn”

MOTEH PARROT & NICKY MURRAY
Apr 13 @ 10:00 pm – 11:45 pm

Born in Cameroon and given a local name, Moteh Parrott (short for Mnkongmoteh) is a Scottish artist with a distinctive modern indie-folk-rock sound, complementing reflective, uplifting lyrics with raw electric guitar and cello. His music has been described as having a sound comparable with “…a Highland wilderness with all the sweeping colour and spirit which that encompasses.” (leedsmusicscene.net). The self-produced ‘Afterglow’ Acoustic EP was released in late 2018, and Moteh is currently working towards his first album, having released three EPs with his previous band, Red Kites.52453392_2798156263531874_6714043656229093376_n
