Evening of bluegrass at Montrose venue

Bluegrass Band, Blueflint, will be appearing at Montrose Folk Club in the Links Hotel, Mid Links, Montrose, on Friday, October 14 at 8pm.

The Blueflint concert is on a Friday evening rather than the normal Folk Club night of Tuesday. This is to accommodate the Launch Tour for the new Blueflint CD entitled “Maudy Tree” which was released on October 10.

Since the Band was formed in 2008, Blueflint have steadily developed a reputation as the new sound of Bluegrass Music in Scotland. The members of the Band are Deborah Arnott on Vocals, Banjo and Ukulele, Hugh Kelly, who is also a member of Longway, on Double Bass, Clare Neilson on Vocals and Claw Hammer Banjo, and finally, Roddy Neilson, who is a member of the Peatbog Faeries, on Fiddle and Vocals. The sound of Blueflint is defined by the sublime close harmonies of Deborah Arnott and Clare Neilson whose voices, both ethereal and warm, interweave in ballads and songs full of both melancholy and charm.

Intertwining Banjos, Fiddle and Double Bass accompany the Singers in beautifully-crafted songs which swoop from buoyant Americana-Tinged Ballads to dark Folk Songs.

Despite their Bluegrass Roots, the fresh and original sound of Blueflint does not sit in any one genre, but is gaining them fans from across the musical spectrum.

Blueflint released their debut CD “High Bright Morning” in 2009, produced by renowned Composer and Producer, Jim Sutherland, formerly of The Easy Club. The Album was acclaimed for its fresh and imaginative take on Americana traditions. Blueflint are appearing at Montrose as part of a UK October Tour which will include launch nights in Edinburgh, Dublin and London to mark the release of “Maudy Tree”.

Everyone is welcome at Montrose Folk Club on Friday to enjoy a great night of good time Bluegrass and Americana Music. The doors at the Links Hotel will be open at 7.30pm with Blueflint on stage at 8pm.
