Ryan supports Supermoon and Rally & Broad

January 12, 2015

Next Friday, 23 January, I will be participating in not one, but TWO great nights out in Edinburgh, supporting the launch of Supermoon, the band ‘rising from the ashes of Meursault’, and reading a collaborative piece with Rachel McCrum at the January edition of Rally & Broad, which is headlined by the outstanding performance poet Francesca Beard in a rare Scottish appearance.

These are both going to be amazing shows, both of which cost an unbelievably economical five pounds, both of which will change your life in small but indelible ways. Hope to see you at one or maybe even both!

What: Launch of Supermoon

Where: Henry’s Cellar Bar, 8 Morrison Street, Edinburgh

When: Friday 23 January, doors at 7pm

How Much: £5

 

What: Rally & Broad: The Apology Shop

Where: The Bongo Club, 66 Cowgate, Edinburgh

When: Friday 23 January, doors at 7.30pm

You Are The King

December 14, 2013

Lach made his name in New York City as founder of the legendary anti-folk movement. With a few simple rules and an open stage, a community of artists arose including recognisable names like Beck and Regina Spektor. Since moving to Scotland, Lach been growing a community of musicians and artists through three weekly events at Henry’s Cellar Bar in Edinburgh. We sat down to talk about the open-stage ethos and what might bring a man from the the Big Apple to Scotland’s capital. A talented songwriter himself, we also feature a track from Lach’s most recent musical offering, ‘Ramshackle Heart’ which is available on his Bandcamp.
