Singer-songwriter Nick Harper left a capacity Bute audience spellbound after a stunning live set at Craigmore Bowling Club in Rothesay on Saturday.

Harper, a former bandmate of Glenn Tilbrook in Squeeze, showed off his distinctive, soulful voice, his mesmerising guitar playing and his ability to capture almost any mood in his writing, from light-hearted whimsy to blistering anger and declarations of love, at a gig which was over all too quickly.
