Join us at Lodge at Lochside Wee Bear Café for a show celebrating the launch of THE WYNNTOWN MARSHALS' spectacular fourth album "BIG IDEAS" (release date 2nd September 2022).
Championed since their earliest days by legendary British broadcaster ‘Whispering’ Bob Harris, the band signed to Europe’s leading roots/Americana label Blue Rose Records in 2013 and have racked up universally stunning reviews for each of their albums – “Westerner” (2010) was called “the best Americana album from Europe ever” by RootsTime in Belgium, and its successor “The Long Haul” was placed at number 10 in the Sunday Herald’s list of the 50 top Scottish albums of 2013, ahead of new releases from big-hitters like Texas, Travis and Biffy Clyro.
The Wynntown Marshals’ lyrics are never throwaway, the subject matter often obscure. World-weary yet uplifting melodies are channelled via strident guitars and gorgeous vocal harmonies, offset by beautiful keyboard parts and driven by a rock-solid rhythm section. There’s something for everyone on this collection - nostalgic lyrics collide with jangly guitars and killer pop hooks powerhouse guitars, plaintive pedal steel guitar, and washes of Hammond organ.
Don't miss this chance to see The Wynntown Marshals perform tracks from the new album, plus old favourites on Friday 9th September, in the intimate setting of the award winning Lodge At Lochside Wee Bear Café.
There will be a licensed bar selling alcoholic and non-alcoholic refreshments.
