The latest acoustic gig organised by Bute promoters Transclyde Music sees Jonny Boyle and Gary Hall take to the stage at Bute Shinty Club on Saturday, June 13.

Jonny Boyle has been making and playing music for the last twenty years, playing guitar, bass and a bit of drums - though his voice is something really special.

He has just finished recording and producing Radio, his latest album of self-penned songs, featuring some of the country’s most sought-after and seasoned pros, including Roxy Music’s Paul Thompson on drums and Alan Clark and Chris White from Dire Straits on Hammond organ and sax respectively.

Gary Hall is a long-time troubadour whose first album was released to much critical acclaim and voted second best album of the year in a ‘Folk Roots’ poll.

After living in America for a few years, sharing the stage with the likes of John Prine, Guy Clark and Townes Van Zandt, Gary returned to the north of England where he set up the Voodoo Rooms studio.

Tickets for Saturday’s gig are on sale at Musicker cafe in Rothesay’s High Street (tel 01700 502287) and Macqueen’s butchers in Bishop Street (tel 01700 502067).
