Festive greetings and thanks to all the Medicine Show supporters for 2014

The compliments of the season to one and all, please find our Festive Collection Gift (courtesy  of The Medicine Show Family Fold of artists and Medicine Show Records) to all our members, readers, and independently minded music supporters everywhere. 

Its been some year for The Medicine Show (who supports this website) and our small country of Scotland where we are based. It has felt like we have been at the heart of things here in this amazing year, particularly with the huge internet and radio success of Dumb Instruments "Suffering From Scottishness" mirroring our small nations roller coaster political ride and proving to provide a Devo Max soundtrack to 2014.

It feels we have increasingly had our finger on the pulse of this vibrant independent music movement across Europe (and beyond) as well with some great national, international airplay, successful tour's festival appearances and chart places for our family of artists.

Thank you everyone for all your support and camaraderie in 2014.  

Our year started with Fraser Anderson and The O's shows at Celtic Connections in Glasgow, the O's playing the new Hydro Arena and touring with old friends Del Amitri. Then Fraser going on to tour Scotland with we me in a 2cv, (thanks to 2cv Hire Lochness) with the finale at a Medicine Show Revue for Trad Fest Edinburgh in May. 

We established our own Country Roots Festival at Perth Race Course with Americana Cavalcade.

The Medicine Show Summer Revue this year introduce the amazing Moscow Fish to audiences in England and Scotland and at Y-Not Festival where with The David Latto Band and The Wayward Ellen Boys we headlined the Sunday night in The Saloon Stage.  Again The Potting Shed Stage artists took Belladrum Festival by storm with record, regular and loyal crowds, for our blend of local national and international roots music artists.

We took the Medicine Show Revue out across the Highlands and helped organise a hole day of music here in our home town of Dingwall to highlight food poverty here in the Highlands and collected food for The Highland Food Bank.

Our home venue listening rooms at The Argyll Hotel UllapoolThe Greenhouse Dingwall and The Crystal House Strathpeffer have steady and growing audiences and just the right atmosphere for the music and artists we love, and we again thank our friends and non corporate sponsors Steve and Clancy at Square Wheels Cycles in Strathpeffer for the support and friendship (I could not do this all without your help folks) particularly for The Mekons and Robbie Fulks who we brought to Belladrum, toured the Highlands and Islands withand did possibly the best House Concert I have ever been to at their wee hoose in Strathpeffer  in August  .

Then we closed out this remarkable year with a Revue Tour of Portugal and a House Festival appearance  at Vincent McCallum's JDO Festival at Tomar in December. 

The House Concert Hub is well over 2,000 members and over 100 people a day use both the Hub and Flyinshoe Review for information on the artists and music we love in every aspect of keeping the music makers on the road.

I do sincerely feel humbled by all the support we get and am delighted to report that we seem to be carrying this huge wave of goodwill into the season of peace & goodwill, and am delighted to thank everyone of you for your contribution to our peace and harmony. 

2015

I am delighted to announce that the lovely and talented Mairi Maclennan  is joining The Medicine Show Family Fold as Admin Manager (and adopted Mother). Mairi brings an intimate knowledge of the business and love of the music. She has experience of band and label management, booking and is adept with all modern media and promo. I am very very excited at what we can all achieve in 2015. 

Together we will be even better equipped and seem set to surf this huge wave of support into 2015 in some style.

We again will be at Celtic Connects in January this time with Dumb Instrument who are at The Tunnels on Jan 17th and have just had the news Suffering From Scottishness will feature in the BBC TV documentary on The Commonwealth Games, 'When The Games Came To Glasgow'. They are slowly melding into the Scottish consciousness where they belong. 

Then the Medicine Show is heading to The States for a month for Folk Alliance in Kansas and SXSW in Austin, visiting and playing with some friends along the road February and March. We will be back for Americana Cavalcade in Perth in June, Belladrum of course and have some exciting news about a return to Portugal brewing in August. So the coming year is already building up to be an equally exciting one musically at any rate.

From all at Medicine Music.

A very Merry Christmas to one and all , and please do join us for a guid New Year in 2015.  

Rob Ellen
