Bute ukuleles set to play live alongside Martin Stephenson

The Rothesay-based Argyll and Bute Ukulele Ensemble will share a stage with The Daintees’ frontman Martin Stephenson at what should be a memorable gig in Rothesay this weekend.

The ukuleles, who are attracting a growing local following, return to the stage at St Paul’s Church Hall in Deanhood Place this Sunday, August 19 after a hugely successful performance at a local music showcase last month.

Martin Stephenson, their special guest on Sunday night, is also well known to Bute audiences, with his combination of huge musical talent, honed alongside the likes of The Bluebells, Aztec Camera and John Martyn, and a wicked sense of humour ensuring a warm reception any time he returns to the island to play live.

Sunday’s gig is unlicensed but you’re welcome to bring your own drinks - tickets are priced £8 and are available in advance at Musicker and Rothesay Post Office, and at the door on the night.

What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.
