The Slim Panatella's play home grown hand rolled Highland Hokum original Blues on Guitars and violins made from wine boxes and cigar boxes, banjos made from warming pans and dog bowls, and bass guitars made from bicycle parts formed the focus of an exhibition at Ig:LU in Inverness and was the venue for Cigarbox Dons first album "The Very Dab" (available below). Artist and musician Don Jack, otherwise known as Cigarbox Don, makes and plays these unusual instruments. These have led Don into magical adventures, playing with Rob Ellen on tea-chest bass (and an ever changing number of guests) as The Slim Panatellas. The Slims play in some unusual venues from a cigarbox guitar festival in France to The Scottish Parliament. The exhibition ran for 2 weeks in November 2013 and featured live music events with some of our friends (we have posted photos and posters.

Whetherman (USA) touring in the UK this May

Hello Folks! I was directed to this website by way of a very talented UK singer/songwriter named Emily Maguire, whom I did a month long European Tour with earlier this Summer. I'll be taking my first leap to the UK this coming May for tour, and I've booked 4 gigs so far in the 23 days I plan to be there. I'd love to incorporate house shows, as intimate concerts have become my favorite environment to perform in, it suits my music beautifully! And what a way to really meet new folks.
