Show Information

Saturday 8th April

A brilliant double header, from SUNJAY and HUSH HUSH

Sunjay

Here, for a much sought-after return visit is SUNJAY, a blues / folk guitarist and singer of remarkable versatility and skill, with an eclectic mix of standards, covers and self-penned songs that shows a performer that is just getting better and better.

With a relaxed and confident manner, vocal style and mastery of his instrument he walks onto a stage and addresses the audience as though he is sitting down to play music with a group of close friends; a completely natural approach for a young man who picked up the guitar when he was just 4 years old and hasn’t put it down since.

Along with Sunjay are a heavily blues soaked group of some of the finest roots musicians in Scotland.

HUSH HUSH is a trio from The Borders. Seoras Ashby is an accomplished singer and guitar player. Frank Usher is a world class guitarist who has worked with artists such as Tam White, John Martyn, Mike Heron and Fish. Bill Muir is a stunning harmonica player who played with many of the American blues greats touring London in the 1960s. They combine to deliver a beautifully crafted blend of roots, blues and indie-folk music.

Saturday 3rd June

Heidi Talbot and John McCusker

heidi-talbot-19

Making a rare appearance as a duo, especially for St Boswells Live! Heidi Talbot and John McCusker are performers of prodigious talent, charm and musicality borne of decades immersed in traditional and contemporary music.

Heidi Talbot came to prominence as lead singer with the Irish-American super group Cherish the Ladies. She has since attracted wide critical acclaim for her album “In Love and Light”. Heidi was born in Ireland but now lives in Scotland, where she is married to John McCusker. With a background like that, it’s hardly surprising she should develop a style that switches easily between Celtic and Americana

Celebrated fiddler John McCusker formed his first band, Parcel O’Rogues at fifteen, and later joined top Scottish folk act the Battlefield Band. In celebration of his 25th Anniversary as a professional musician, John McCusker released “Hello, Goodbye” in early 2016. John has been a member of Mark Knopfler’s band since 2008, playing arenas around the world including a double bill with Bob Dylan at The Hollywood Bowl & 21 nights at The Royal Albert Hall.
