Book tickets


Xylouris White is a collaboration between legendary Cretan lute player George Xylouris and Jim White, an icon of the underground music scene and founding member of The Dirty Three. While coming from different parts of the world and from vastly divergent musical backgrounds, the connection between the duo is palpable from the first note of their debut LP, Goats (produced by Guy Picciotto of Fugazi). Their most recent release, Black Peak, on Bella Union, sees the duo expand their rich and inventive instrumental playing and further foreground Xylouris’ haunting baritone voice.



Still House Plants 

Still House Plants are a three piece from Glasgow. 

'Post-modern power ballads meet free jazz in an emotional territory that touches upon such diverse figures as Robert Wyatt, Ornette Coleman and Elysia Crampton. Fragments of guitar, melismatic vocal mantra, saxophone, bass, and percussion combine in a spirit of glowing minimalism to create something truly wonderful.'





Bamya are an emerging Glasgow based trio who play loose, post-punk/world influenced music. 

Their gigs are a feast of dark rhythms dug up from cemeteries where there was no good digging in the first place.’
