And boy do we need it! Baby it’s cold outside, but the Bevvy Sisters will be on hand in a very short time to warm the cockles of your heart with their delicious vocal harmonies, together with a set from the silky jazz guitar of David McGregor. And just in case you needed more persuasion to make the journey on a cold winter’s evening, we wanted to let you know that….
The car park around the hall has been heavily salted and gritted and is now safe for parking and walking.
The new black stage curtaining has been fitted, greatly enhancing the performance space.
A beautiful new Letham Nights sign has been created and donated by local artist Claire Heminsley whose other work you can see at her website Incahoots.
Claire has also designed a new Letham Nights T-shirt which will be on sale with all proceeds for hall funds.
craftscotland will be there with their delightful pop up shop of gift items selected from local makers for all your last minute Christmas shopping needs. Letham Hall Fund receive a commission on all purchases
The Bevvy Sisters will have their own range of new Bevvy merchandise too…

here is how we hope the Fife Herald will report on our Christmas Bevvy
The next Letham Nights – the music venue in the Howe of Fife claiming to put on ‘The best small gigs in the world’ – is on the 18th December, featuring the return of the fantastic Bevvy Sisters. The Bevvy Sisters played Letham Nights back in May. Such a fabulous night was had by the sell out crowd and the sisters that they suggested a “Christmas Bevvy” we couldn’t refuse. Click here to see a review of the show.
The Bevvy’s have appeared and wowed the audiences at Glasgow’s Celtic Connections festival and all over Scotland. They have collaborated or appeared with the likes of Eliza Carthy, Bert Jansch, Kathryn Williams, Cara Dillon, Michael Marra, Tam White, Capercaillie, and Juliet Turner to name a few. All their shows have been rapturously received and Letham Nights is delighted to feature in their pre Christmas show schedule.
Supporting The Bevvy Sisters will be Dundee’s jazz guitarist extraordinaire, David McGregor, he will treat us to a spell-binding set of his own tunes and jazz covers.
I hope a feature in the Fife Herald will let more local people into the Letham Nights experience. We should have online ticket sales set up in a day or so, at this link http://letham.org.uk/lethamnights/. If not, people can still make a reservation using this page.
This show will be our 15th since December 2008, each one has been incredibly well received by our band of loyal supporters and many new faces. Over a thousand happy punters have paid to see some incredible talent. We hope to continue to bring you fantastic music and a relaxed atmosphere next year and for many more.

It is an exciting prospect to have the Bevvy Sisters back at Letham to delight us with their sublime, sultry, snazzy and superlative singing. If you have not got a ticket yet well now is the time to let us know and get on the reserved list. Last time it was a sell-out and there is no reason to suppose this is not going to happen again. So get yer skates on!
David McGregor, jazz guitarist extraordinaire, will open for the Bevvy Sisters and treat us to a spell-binding set of his own tunes and jazz covers.

The Clap and Tipple Bar will have its usual selection of rather classy but reasonably priced – and where possible organic, local or fair trade – fine wines, beers and soft drinks. Might even be a mince pie or two…. Scrumptious!
