Siskin Green live (with afternoon tea)

2:00pm Tickets £8.50 from Eventbrite

Siskin Green perform songs from their upcoming debut album live for the first time.

Since getting together in early 2021 to arrange and perform four songs for BBC Scotland's 'Reflections at the Quay', Siskin Green have been writing and arranging songs and are delighted to finally play live!

Jane Bentley (percussion and vocals), Suzanne Butler (fiddle and vocals) and Margaret McLarty (guitar, banjo, piano and vocals) weave close harmony singing with evocative folk instrumentation in songs of faith, feminism and justice.

Join them as they play music from their forthcoming debut album, which they are recording later this year and enjoy sharing tea and cake afterwards. CLICK HERE FOR TICKETS FROM EVENTBRITE

(You will be able to donate to help produce the album - any amount will be a huge help in moving the project forward.)

Saturday July 9th 2022. "The Well"

Presented by "Safer by Sound" & "Inspiring Leith"

A place for anyone to come and enjoy an evening out in a safe environment with a warm welcome. There is live music and spoken word with refreshments.

From 7pm until back of 9pm - Donations welcome


Safer by Sound and Inspiring Leith set up The Well as an opportunity for performer who would normally not get the chance to show their creativity in a public setting.

This is not just any old open mic night. Safer by Sound run creative workshops in performing disciplines to give folk confidence and mix with other creative people we then give folk the chance to perform if they wish to. There is no pressure. Its always a joy to see people's faces light up when they receive the applause and support of the audience. Please support us in this endeavor. Big thanks to St James.

Phil.

Future dates:

Saturday August 6th.
