DESCRIPTION:

Paired-back, storytelling songs by songwriter Adam Ross. Adam will be supported by Man of the Minch – multi instrumentalist, pop folk act – Pedro Cameron.

Songwriter Adam Ross’s paired-back, storytelling songs have been compared to that of John Prine and Loudon Wainright III due to his knack for wordplay and humour. His critically-acclaimed debut solo album, Staring At Mountains was recorded in the unusual settings of Delgatie Castle and Todhead Lighthouse and features guest appearances from Jenny Sturgeon and Pedro Cameron. Adam is a seasoned performer, having toured the UK solo and with his indie band Randolph’s Leap.

“Sheer class” – BBC Radio Scotland

Man of the Minch is the alias of Glasgow based queer galactic folk pop act and multi-instrumentalist Pedro Cameron. Drawing on lyrical themes of life and loves as a member of the LGBT community, the Man of the Minch sound blends sparkling electronic elements with rootsy Americana and traditional Celtic sounds, virtuoso fiddle playing and catchy as hell pop hooks for something both unique and soaringly anthemic.

Man of the Minch won the Up And Coming Artist of the Year award at the 2019 MG ALBA Scots Trad Music Awards and his music has been described as “forward-thinking folk music” by Rolling Stone magazine.
