Wow! We made it happen! Austin, Texas Musician of the Year is coming to the village hall! Not only that but we have actually assembled 4 truly extraordinary female artists for an evening of exquisite entertainment – a joyful celebration of women in music and of equal rights. We are BURSTING with excitement!

Ever since we saw Gina Chavez on NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert series (now approaching 650000 views!!), we were determined to bring her to Letham Nights to share her beautiful Latino infused songs and rhythms. And she was determined to come to Scotland. Gina is an award-winning, bilingual, Latin-folk singer/songwriter who expertly blends the sounds of the Americas with tension and grace. She has received national recognition from NPR’s “All Songs Considered” and “Alt.Latino” for her debut SXSW performance as one of the new Latin artists to watch. She won Austin Music Awards for two years running, including three Austin Music Awards for “Best Female Vocals, Best Latin Traditional, and Best Latin Rock”.
 

So we are going to have a massive party. With dancing.

 
Delightful Squalor joins the seasoned talents of singer song-writers Lake Montgomery of Paris, Texas and Cera Impala of Flagstaff, Arizona. These ladies provide honeyed harmonies you can hope to taste delivering an authentic Americana duet project, unique in its charm. Guitar, 5 string Banjo and ukulele in hand, they craft songs that feel timeless, songs to help you forget a world gone mad. A taste of country blues, gospel, folk and old-time jazz, they take from a range of influences resulting in a sound that comes across as quite it’s own.
 
The prodigiously talented young Glasgow singer-songwriter, Zoe Graham completes the quartet. Zoe has an impressive maturity and attention to detail in her music that sets her apart from her peers. On stage, she is masterful with new tech, fleshing out the instrumentation with loop pedals, but she can also tear you apart with a simple acoustic ballad like the soon-to-be iconic Anniesland Lights. The last time Zoe played Letham, she blew us away.  Prepare to be amazed.

Now surely that’s enough to get you battering down the door for tickets!

Letham Nights…

Letham Nights began in December 2008.  Our vision was to bring high quality music to our village hall and provide a stage for local talent.  At the same time we wanted to work towards creating a zero carbon village hall. 8 years and over 80 acts later, we have drawn in an audience which now averages nearly 100 in our 120-capacity hall.  We have supported hall improvements so that we now have double glazing, better insulation, renewed wiring and a new efficient boiler.  The events are renowned for their high quality music and the unique, warm and friendly atmosphere.  We really do put on THE BEST SMALL GIGS IN THE WORLD!
