Sara 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.
Passionate and heartfelt vocals are the icing on the cake and it’s hardly surprising that they are no strangers to the Bothy Folk Club.” – Clive Pownseby, Organiser, Bothy Folk Club, Southport

Fèis Rois launched its acclaimed Ceilidh Trail project in 2000. The first Ceilidh Trail was coordinated by Gaelic singer Julie Fowlis who spent three years working at Fèis Rois as an Education Officer. This first Ceilidh Trail gave 10 young musicians a summer job performing across Ross & Cromarty.
