Ewan McLennan this Thursday

Ewan McLennan appeared upstairs at the Mount Pleasant in Southport last October, since when he has gone on to win the prestigious Horizon Award at the BBC Radio 2 folk awards.  He is a young Scottish performer who is definitely going from strength to strength; I rated his last performance in Southport very highly.  His website describes his music as "contemporary and traditional folk".

You can see him upstairs in the Mount Pleasant this Thursday 21 April 2011 at 8.00pm. Tickets are £7-50. Contact for information and tickets: Richard on 07801 849635 or e-mail him - click here.  The venue serves Tetley cask bitter.

Here is Ewan singing the Jute Mill Song at a BBC Scotland concert.

  1. I think I may have mentioned this last time around, but it bears repeating anyway that this young man is the best thing I've heard in a month of many Sundays! No bells, no whistles, no hype - just an honest ability to convey the essence of a song without swamping it with an essence of self - now that's what I call Folk!
