It’s a Sell-out!

April 28th, 2011

We are delighted to announce that once again, before even a sweet Bevvy note has been sung or guitar tenderly plucked, the Bevvy Sisters have attracted a full house to Letham Nights for a ‘Right Royale Bevvy’ on Friday 29th April, kicking off at 8pm and opening with a set from virtuoso jazz guitarist, David McGregor. If you did not manage to book your ticket we are truly sorry but wish you a fine Friday evening.  If you are still keen to come, please still contact us in case we get some call-offs.

If you DO have your reservation, here are a few wee reminders….

  1. There is a licensed bar – the wonderful Clap & Tipple, with cheery (sometimes buxom) staff on hand to help you quench your thirst with a fine range of beers, wines, soft drinks and snacks as far as possible locally sourced and organic…
  2. We will be having a raffle to support AGLIT- Adolescent Girls Literacy Programme in Malawi with truly wonderful prizes…
  3. The craftscotland pop-up shop will be on hand to offer you a range of products from local makers
  4. There will be prizes – yes PRIZES! – for the best tiara or crown worn on the evening (following from the Right Royale Street Party at the Well Tree in the afternoon)

So we’ll see you there – bring a happy smiling face and your tiara!

The Bevvy Sisters Return – By Royale Appointment!

March 31st, 2011

29th April – A very special day!  Why?  Well, dontcha know?  The Bevvy Sisters are coming to Letham Nights by Royale Appointment for a Right Royale Bevvy!

The Bevvy Sisters: Powerhouse harmony trio. Radio-era chic, now retro cool.
Three sassy lassies. Reinventing the genre and covering all the exits.

Mixing classy original songs, vibrant vintage folk and artful contemporary covers into the headiest of musical cocktails, Scottish harmony outfit The Bevvy Sisters unites the richly seasoned voices of Heather Macleod, Lindsey Black and Roberta Pia, with Shooglenifty percussionist James Mackintosh and David Donnelly (ex-Salsa Celtica/Finlay Quaye) on guitar, mandolin and backing vocals. With sell-out shows at Glasgow’s world-famous Celtic Connections festival for the past two years, they have won a string of glowing reviews and extensive UK radio play. Check out songs from their album The St James Sessions.

And take a look at what the experts think:

‘I feel it’s my calling to be an understudy Bevvy Sister’ Eddi Reader

‘Luscious. Lovely. Tuneful. The Bevvy Sisters can mix the dirtiest martini in town, then sing it.’ Eliza Carthy

‘The only thing better than getting to listen to The Bevvy Sisters, is getting to sing with them’ Dick Gaughan

David McGregor, who we first met at a Haiti benefit gig in Dunbog, is a virtuoso jazz guitarist with a huge talent – and he has agreed to open for the Sisters.  His intricate and delicate picking on his own compositions and some classic jazz covers, is captivating.  After many years living in Scotland working in bands, recording and tutoring guitar, David is now living in Paris in the heart of the European jazz scene  …but he was not going to miss the chance of playing at Letham Nights with the Bevvy Sisters!
