picture of McBlues
  McBlues are four experienced musicians exploring the jazz and blues roots of traditional Celtic Music and Songs, seriously? McBlues best described as jazzed up, bluesy, traditional Celtic music. These four multi-instrumentalists bring over 200 years of musical experience to the stage. They play a highly entertaining mix of ballads, jigs and reels on bagpipes, mandolin, fiddles, harp, harmonica and guitar. A truly unique band, playing the tartan blues like you've never heard them before.

Information for Prospective performers
Due to limited time and popularity the Stage Manager cannot guarantee a slot to all aspiring open stage performers so it is best to arrive well before a concert starts to be in the running for a slot. The Stage Manager may give preference to acts that did not appear the previous month. Time is limited to 8 minutes total stage time and all performances are un-plugged, that is no mics or amps. Acts pay normal admission and need to have good audience rapport and ability in order to add value to a concert.
If a support act is scheduled they are generally allocated 25 minutes. Supports acts are paid a set fee and we can help sell your CDs and promote your act.
