On Friday (October 26) the Cromar Folk Club will welcome guest singer/songwriter Aberdonian Bob Knight.
Bob has spent his entire musical career playing in bands in Aberdeen, but it was only when he stopped playing regularly in 2001 that he started writing songs in late 2003 using his native, “Scots,” language.
As Bob explained: “I’d been playing in bands for over thirty years, and due to the type of material being performed, had always sung in an American accent. When I started writing my own songs, I was determined right from the outset, before writing even one single word, that this time I would be singing in my own voice.”
Bob wrote more than twenty songs between 2003 and 2004 in the traditonal Scottish folk style and has added many more to his repetoire since.
The Cromar Folk Club meets on the last Friday of every month at 8pm in The Aberdeen Arms in Tarland.
Entry is £5 on the door and all singers, musicians and listeners are very welcome.
