Boots for Dancing, James Brown Is Annie… what next in our Year of the Funk at Letham Nights? Well, we’ve only gone and booked what we think is probably the hottest funk-soul outfit going in the UK at the moment: Glasgow-based Tom Maguire & The Brassholes!

Tom McGuire & The Brassholes are an eclectic, modern soul-funk, 8 piece band from Glasgow, headed by lumberjack-attired soul bearer, Tom McGuire. The funky collective of “killer animals from hell”, consists of a colourful, hilarious bunch of wonderfully talented, animated young men. They provide energetic, bombastic funk and soul, imbibed with meaning. Their debut self-titled album is out now and you can come and see them LIVE in the village hall.

Take a wee listen to this and then imagine that going down in our fabulous village hall! The place is going to be jumping!

…And announcing our opening act – the one and only Fraser Ross

‘New Zealand’s best kept musical secret’????

It must be nearly 5 years since we first saw Fraser Ross live. He played a beautiful, quirky, heartwarming, funny and captivating opening set at the Gardyne Theatre, supporting Anderson, McGinty, Webster, Ward and Fisher (soon to become the inimitable Sinderins). And how we have missed him! That night we offered him a slot at Letham Nights but the dates never quite worked out before he  returned to New Zealand in 2015 after three years of living and touring in Europe and the UK.

And how we have missed him! That night we offered him a slot at Letham Nights but the dates never quite worked out before he  returned to New Zealand in 2015 after three years of living and touring in Europe and the UK.

On his return he toured his debut LP, Mongrels (Home Alone Music, 2015) throughout New Zealand, supporting such bands as Phoenix Foundation, French for Rabbits, The Nudge, and Nadia Reid. 

His first two EPs, And Birds Do Sing (HAM, 2009) and To Places (HAM, 2012) established him as a serious talent and a brilliant, loud-shirted presence within the New Zealand underground.

And now he’s back! And we’ve booked him! So all is well with the world.

Ross has played at numerous arts festivals, including the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, LitCrawl Wellington, the Hamilton Gardens Arts Festival, Wellington City Summer Sounds, and the Christchurch Nostalgia Festival.?

He released his second LP ‘Life is Magic, Where is my Rabbit?’ In late 2018 through Home Alone Music.

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!
