Avocet support Jim Malcolm at Tron Theatre (Celtic Connections)
January 19, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 10:20 pm
With a true focus on penning original and evocative songs, Avocet have been met with critical acclaim since they joined forces. Recently signed to Glasgow/Amsterdam-based label Mink Records, the Glasgow-based trio draw influences from both the blues and psychedelic folk scene of the 1960’s and 1970’s and contemporary folk and trad. Avocet will release their first single later this month ahead of their highly anticipated debut EP due in early March 2018, recorded at The Abbey Road Institute, Amsterdam.
A former Songwriter of the Year in the Scots Trad Music Awards – and three-time Scots Singer nominee – Perthshire’s finest Jim Malcolm has steadily built on the acclaim he won while fronting the Old Blind Dogs for seven years, with the ensuing dozen firmly cementing his reputation as a captivating interpreter of traditional songs, a master craftsman of original material and a glorious singer. “Quietly, unforcefully and undeniably stunning” (Mojo)
