On 22nd May – The Brothers are back! Yes, it’s true. Returning to Letham Nights on another UK tour, commissioned especially for us, the Black Oil Brothers from Chicago USA are coming back to Letham Nights. Get it in the diary!
The stunning Luva Anna are coming to Letham Nights bringing their unique blend of sea shanty-folk-punk to shake things up. From Dundee, they forge folk-tinged 4-part harmonies with catchy melodies and riffs, to deliver one of the most incendiary live shows currently on the circuit to both amuse and beguile fans and critics alike.
In little more than two years, the band has played over 200 gigs, taking in the Academy tour with The
View(1500 + Capacity venues) and several Festivals including T in The Park, Rock Ness, Belladrum, The Wickerman Festival, Live at Loch Lomond and Connect.
They will be joined by the magnificent Bum-Clocks, Edinburgh-based 3-piece band whose
show combines the energy of Iggy Pop with the inspiration of Rabbie Burns. It’s post-punk
wi’ a touch o’ folk.
BUM-CLOCK, A humming beetle, that flies in the summer evenings. (from Jamieson’s
Scottish Dictionary -Edinburgh 1867). You don’t believe what you are reading?
For those of you who missed the Chloe Hall Trio on Saturday 12th September, commiserations! For those of you who came, thanks and have you still got that warm, happy glow that Chloe’s songs induce? It was an exceptional night with top quality music and a great Letham Nights atmosphere. Chloe, and the boys were delighted with Letham and Vivienne Bern excelled as support act. A full review will be posted on smartcommunityfife and letham.org.uk just as soon as we get ourselves organised but in the meantime, you can see some great clips by following these links:
