A late start… but worth it!
COVID-19 has of course put paid to all our plans below. While we are gutted not to be able to bring you this show, we know that the important thing at the moment is to stay safe to save lives. Can we ask that you consider supporting the musicians who would have been playing? Letham Nights as a venue can carry on as before. We are all volunteers. But it’s so hard on the artists… You can sign up to Devon Sproule’s Patreon here >> to get regular downloads of her latest music – and from the amazing Paul Curreri, her partner. And Marker Starling’s music is available here >>
2019 was our Year of Funk and we hosted 3 funkalicious acts in post-punk funk outfit, Boots for Dancing, Edinburgh-based funksters James Brown is Annie and finally, Glasgow’s finest funkateers, Tom McGuire and the Brassholes. It was a blast!
Plans for 2020 have taken a while to fall into place but we are now delighted to announce our next 3 acts for April, June and September…
Thursday 9th April – Devon Sproule and Marker Starling – 7pm CANCELLED
Devon Sproule returns to Letham Nights after a gap of 7 years and we are excited to hear her new stuff and maybe some old favourites too. We also welcome, from Toronto, the excellent Marker Starling. This is our very first show on a school night! It was just too good to miss. Please note the earlier start time of 7pm. More information here >>
Saturday 27th June – Neil Sutcliffe and Friends – Dirt Road to Lafayette
Ever since the success of our 50th celebration collaboration with Letham Lights, when we did a film/gig thing, we have hankered after the perfect film/music combo to repeat it. And so here it is, the beautiful Dirt Road to Lafayette in the afternoon, Q&A after the film with director Kenny Glenaan and accordionist Neil Sutcliffe, who acted the main protagonist in the film. Then in the evening, music from Neil and friends. What a scoop! Just perfect. More information soon >>
Saturday 12th September – Sarah Jane Scouten and band with Scott Cook
An all-Canadian line-up seeing the return of troubadour Scott Cook and the inaugural Letham Nights performance of Sarah Jane Scouten with her awesome ambient indie americana sound. More information soon >>
