Ted Christopher @ Hootananny
Sep 21 @ 9:30 pm

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”

In January 2014 at The Eagle Bar in Inverness they competed against 18 other bands and were crowned as the winners of the Highland Battle Of The Bands 2014.

The band has been together for three years and comprises of Lewis Goodwin on vocals, Mark Savage on guitar, Nick Laidlaw on guitar, John Murray on drums and Stewart McArthur on bass guitar.All five members of Seed Of Sorrow are self taught musicians and Lewis G (Seed of Sorrow) says ” Our songs cover subject matter ranging from punching the f*** out of people to the pointlessness of existence to the destruction of the earth by the very people who claim to be improving it”

Appearing in magazines such as Terrorizer, Firebrand After Dark and radio stations Metal Nation Radio, Threat Con Radio, Rock N Wrestle Radio and Moray Firth Radio throughout 2013 led to ending the year on a high point as they were filmed at Les-Festive 2013 in December performing their track ‘Death F*ck Ritual’ for Metal Outlaw TV. They have a five track E.P. named Vice Like Grip which was released in August 2013. Tracks are on Soundcloud, live videos are on their Facebook page and Youtube.
