Frieda Morrison in Concert – Morning Discovers the Dew with Sarah Beattie and Delane Morrison


Sara Grey and Kieron Means. Sat 7th November

tSara-01Sara Grey and Kieron Means are appearing at the Bothy on Saturday 7th November 2015


“Sara Grey and her son, Kieron Means, play American music, as distinct from Americana – theirs is the real deal. Old-time ballads, cowboy songs and Primitive Methodist hymns are all grist to their individual mill.


Sara’s unique frailing banjo style and Kieron’s blues-inflected guitar are in perfect harmony and this, instinctive, family symbiosis is what sets them apart.
