There will be a choice of two vegan dishes for supper, one spicy and one that isn’t!

We look forward to welcoming you there!


Xan Tyler and Dusty Stray

With an album out this year on cult US indie label JoyFul Noise and another on London's legendary dub label Ariwa, Fife based singer songwriter Xan Tyler is having a BIG year. Xan's live set includes songs from all her releases which span electronica through alt-folk to dub.

As luck would have it Texas born Amsterdam based folk-noir artist Dusty Stray, is in Scotland for few gigs and the pair are going to perform a few songs together. Dusty Stray's mesmerising songs, described by one journo' as 'dreamy freak folk songs' portray whimsy, pathos and deliciously dark humour in equal measure.


Hokey Pokey comprises Helen and Andy Pay, the former coming from a strongly jazz-based background and Andy having cut his musical teeth in the world of folk music. These days they perform songs by such diverse artists as Steve Earle, Karine Polwart, Richard Thompson and Fats Waller, as well as a few written by Andy and some of their friends on subjects which include hoverflies, grouse moors, cowboys and psychopaths! For this gig they will be joined by Jonny Lipsham on bass guitar.


David Latto is a singer-songwriter from Kirkcaldy, Scotland. Channelling his love of American and Scottish indie and folk music he has built a reputation as a thoughtful and emotionally literate songwriter. David's warm and engaging voice recalls Taylor Goldsmith and Jackson Browne. His latest e.p Show Me How To Feel was released in October 2019.
