Crafts & Things - News and Events

Crafts & Things Coffee Shop music nights.

Next Concert here in the Coffee Shop, Crafts & Things, Glencoe.

We kick off our Autumn and Winter concert series with something very special. On Wed Oct 25th, Ross Martin and Eilidh Shaw will be making their first appearance at the Coffee Shop, Crafts & Things, and once again, a wonderful evening of traditional music is guaranteed.

 

Eilidh Shaw and Ross Martin have embarked on a long awaited duo project. Both are probably best known for their work with two top traditional bands; Eilidh with The Poozies and Ross with Daimh, although some may recall the early 2000s when they made up two fifths of the cult folk explosion that was Harem Scarem. Between them they have been at the heart of the Scottish Music scene and over the last 20 years have toured the world both with their own groups and performing as guest artists with a vast array of top performers, clocking up over 100 album appearances with names as diverse as Gaelic Superstar Julie Fowlis, Alt-Country legend Bonnie Prince Billy, Classic Crooner Tony Christie and World Music/ Jazz Fusion impresario Arnaud Ciapolino.

 

Tickets are on sale now in the Craft Shop. If you would like to be included in the Concert e-mailing list, email david@glencoe.plus.com

 

The owner of the business David Cooper has written a book, called "A Gap Life"

Capturing the spirit of the 60s, this is the story of one man’s physical and spiritual journey through those extraordinary years.

Starting in Aberdeen, finishing in Glencoe, David Cooper travels across Europe, North America, and Asia. From a commune in California to the rooftops of Istanbul, traversing the deserts of Iran and Afghanistan, crossing the Karakoram on foot, staying in Tibetan monasteries and remote Sumatran tribal villages, travelling alone, he encounters many iconic 60’s figures.

From R.D. Laing, John Lennon, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and Allen Ginsberg, the acknowledged founder of the Beat Generation, David’s travels and meetings give us a unique insight into a fascinating era, one that changed the world.

Its avilable at the shop.
