Karine Polwart  Sunday 16 October at Faw Kirk : Tickets £16 

“One of the finest singer-songwriters in Britain” (The Guardian)

Folk fans will already be familiar with Karine Polwart, one of Scotland’s greatest contemporary musicians.Born in Banknock, the multi-award winning, singer draws from folk music’s long tradition while keeping pace with the ceaselessly changing times. Her talent for crafting unique, enduring melodies, her gift for saying just enough without overstating her case, the range and dynamism of her arrangements, all come together in songs of powerful contemporary relevance.

Rose Room + Swinging Gypsies at Faw Kirk  Friday 14 October  Tickets £12.50

One of he hottest tickets in Scotland right now! Gypsy jazz and swing, played by a band that combines passion and verve with brilliant musicianship and a warm personality. Fronted by the “dazzling” fiddle playing and sophisticated singing of Seonaid Aitken, they recreate the excitement of Rive Gauche Paris in the 30s and 40s with Stephane Grappelli and Django Reinhardt.

“Stupendous gypsy-jazz, a superb singer” – The Scotsman

Swinging Gypsies open the show. Young musicians with a new perspective on swing, gypsy jazz and jazz standards.
