Hi Mary Ann and Nick,

I was wondering if I could get a moment if your time to listen to something?
It's the title track from Terry Emm's new album. I am booking shows for Terry in 2014 and thought he might suit the music events you put on.
Terry's music has recently had airplay from legendary DJ Bob Harris on BBC Radio 2. Bob described Terry's music as 'excellent, excellent music' and has had him in for a live session. BBC 6 Music DJs Gideon Coe, Chris Hawkins and Tom Robinson have also spun his tracks regularly alongside many regional stations. Terry has recently shared the stage with the likes of; Amy Wadge, Richard Walters, Danny & The Champs, Jackie Leven, Judith Owen, Red Dirt Skinners and many others.
MOJO magazine have described his music as 'pastoral, romantic and lit musically by summer rays…no routine singer- songwriter offering but some-thing totally engaging in melody and lyric' in a 4 star review.
It'd be interesting to see what you think to his music and great if you could consider him for a show.
Thanks very much,
Theo Hall

Hi Mary Ann and Nick

I am looking for gigs for Rab Noakes ( through the remainder of 2013 and right through 2014.
Rab has been described as one " of Scotland's great songsmiths" (Herald). That's really quite an observation when you think of the large number of great writers to have come out of Scotland over the past 40 years or so.
This is Rab's entry in the Edinburgh Festival Fringe programme for his solo show at this year's Acoustic Music Centre @ St Bride's ...
'You might have been forgiven for imagining that there was a portrait in Rab Noakes's attic, because the bloke who arrived on stage here was supposed to be in his sixties. Looking and sounding about half that age, he embarked on a thoroughly engaging journey through 40 years of songwriting. All told, this was a thoroughly enjoyable evening from one of Scotland's great songsmiths". (Stuart Morrison, Herald 2012). After his great success at AMC @ St Bride's in 2012 Rab makes a keenly anticipated return solo appearance to the Fringe. One night only - don't miss it!
For a video of Rab's showstopping performance of Bob Dylan's "Mississippi", see (from Gerry Rafferty tribute concert, Celtic Connections Festival 2012, which Rab curated). This video is just one amongst the many of Rab to be found on YouTube.
I look forward to hearing from you

Hi Mary Ann & Nick

Hope you're all keeping well and busy. :)

I am looking to fill gaps in  singer/songwrter Allan Taylor's Scottish tour in November 2013.

To find out about Allan see or have a look in his DropBox folder at where you'll find his bio and some pictures.

I doubt that there have been many more 'covered' songwriters than Allan Taylor to come out of the British folk revival in the 1960's who have continued to write so prolifically and tour.  Are there any others who have been covered by such a range of performers as Allan?  I wouldn't have thought so.  Some 70-75 cover versions of his songs are listed at  The performers there range from US country star Don Williams to Nana Mouskouri (two songs) to French chanteuse Francois Hardy and from Dick Gaughan to Fairport Convention to The Clancy Brothers.  Leading the field is "It's Good to See You" covered by no less than 21 others world-wide with both Don Williams and Nana Mouskouri each receiving platinum discs for their versions.

Thu 14   available
Fri 15    Glasgow (venue tbc)
Sat 16    Benderloch
Sun 17    available
Mon 18    Stirling FC
Tue 19 and Wed 20   available    
Thu 21    Dumfries Bawbee FC
Fri 22   available    
Sat 23    Portsoy FC
Sun 24    Inverness, Bogbain
Mon 25 to Thu 28   available    
Fri 29    Gateshead

Would you be able to host a show for him on one of these empty dates?  Probably either Sun 17 or Fri 22 Nov would work best with Nov 22 best of all.  Possible?

I look forward to hearing from you

The Herald (four stars) **** ''O’Connor has one of the best voices heard in Scotland in some time, and a set of fine songs to show it off…''

The List (four stars) **** ''soulful stripped down and spine tingling. ’’

Hope you’re having a great day. Just wanted to drop you a line to tell you a little about Roosevelt Bandwagon:

Roosevelt Bandwagon's personnel currently reside in London, UK. The band comprises a fluid line-up of extremely experienced musicians who have been writing, recording and touring internationally in various guises for many years. The ethos is to play the music that comes most naturally to its members with absolutely no consideration whatsoever for the trends, fashions and formulae of the commercial music industry.

Having played house concerts many times in the States in years gone by we love the idea of the House Concert Hub – it is certainly more focused than other social networking sites and far more friendly!!!

We’re currently doing sessions for a full length album which should be ready by May of this year. In the mean time, we have put out the ‘Train Roll On’ EP. We have a limited edition of free pressings which we’re mailing out to those people who request it – hurry and drop us a line before we run out! Tracks can also be heard on our home page/ visit us on myspace: where you can download the tracks for free.

Do please drop us a line – we’d love to hear your thoughts on our music/ have you as a friend.

Best wishes & have a great weekend.

Roosevelt Bandwagon
