Peter Nardini is an artist truly befitting of the word. A singularly talented musician and songwriter, Peter is also a superb painter, well known and respected on the Scottish Contemporary Art scene and beyond.
At the end of this month, twenty five of Peter's original paintings will made available in an live broadcast online auction hosted by the BBC's Natasha Raskin Sharp, founder and auctioneer of the new Exhibit Auctions platform.
We're very pleased to say that the winning bidder for each painting will also receive a complimentary vinyl LP of Peter's 'is there anybody out there?' album, courtesy of Temple Records - another artwork for the collection!
The auction takes place at 3pm BST on Sunday 27th June and you can register and view the paintings online now at Exhibit Auctions, or see them in person at the Arti San Toi Gallery (73 Moncur Street, Glasgow, G40 2SL) between the 25th-27th June 2021.
The long running Girvan Traditional Folk Festival launched over its usual May Day weekend, and nearly all events (apart from the Late Night Extras) are available online throughout the month of May. The main concerts are only £5 each to view, and there are also several free events available, with more being released as the month progresses.
A superb bill this year includes: Gatehouse, Crows, Alan Reid (pictured), Nick Dow, Jock Tamson’s Ideal Band, Heather Yule, Jane Cassidy & Maurice Leyden, Dougie Mackenzie & Brian Miller, Derek Williamson, Peter & Barbara Snape, Creel, Rosie Lindsay, Bob Knight, Graham Carter and Bill Adair.
If you enjoy the free events, and can afford it, please consider supporting the festival via the donations button on the website.
We're changing the way we send out CDs to countries in these Royal Mail Zones: Europe, World Zone 1 & World Zone 2 (basically everywhere that's not UK or USA).
We're now shipping the artwork & CDs in a heavy duty PVC sleeve. You can either store them this way, or repackage in a plastic jewel case if you prefer.
From an ecological point of view this reduces the weight & volume that we send by air, and also makes it more affordable for us to carry on shipping all over the world, so we hope you agree that it's a good move.
Here's some good music, for a good cause; as part of the Acoustic Music at the Meeting Place series, ex-Battlefield Band man Alan Reid has recorded a few songs for a 30 minute video, which you can find here: video link
Viewers can leave donations, which will all be used to raise funds for food banks in Alan's local area
Ex Battlefield Band member Alistair Russell, has written a book! And having led a fascinating life, it should be well worth reading. It's a light-hearted gallop through a life on the road as a musician touring the world, and more besides.
Written in a relaxed, conversational style which reflects Alistair's natural humour, the book comes with enthusiastic endorsements from the folk world, and it's already selling fast, so don't hang around if you want one for Christmas!
'...crammed full of beautifully recounted, mostly hilarious, tales from tour and beyond. A must read for everyone who loves traveling & loves music….. in fact, a must read for everyone!' Kate Rusby
