Stephen Still & Al Perkins

I would certainly recommend the new Stephen Stills CD 'Live at the Shepherds Bush' It is a glorious new release from the Legendary Guitarist that he clearly is! If nothing else show some support and buy it......and if you have'nt ever bought that double album 'Manassas' then go and buy that as well. That is an album that would accompany me to a desert Island! That Band could do anything. I had the honour of meeting Al Perkins on more than a few occasions and I love it when he talked about that Band! They could do anything....just listen to it and you will see what I mean.

John Sebastian & Amos Garrett

Great GIGs at Mundell Music

Well the New Year has started with a bang so to speak! We may have a chance of having the legendary John Sebastian here at the Inn at Lathones (St.Andrews in Scotland) during the Summer. I have never seen him live and I'm sure it would be an experience not to miss. The Stories that He could tell would be worth it alone. Stories from the Lovin Spoonful through to Woodstock through to Crosby Stills Nash & Young! Bring it on I say!
Next up for a possible date is the wonderful Amos Garrett. He has played for me before when I was at the FBI. He gives a great show and I would really recommend him to anyone. He was the Guitarist on Maria Muldaur's 'Midnight at the Oasis'. He is comming in October & it makes me wonder if he will find time to go Fly Fishing this time!

Robby Hecht in Scotland 2010

Robby Hecht will be playing Live here at the Inn at Lathones near St.Andrews on Sunday 31st January.

Robby Hecht is one of Nashvilles leading lights and has quickly established himself as a truly original voice of new America with thoughtful songs blended with glorious melodies.

The music of Robby Hecht represents a return to the early 70s golden era of acoustic pop where thoughtful, well-crafted lyrics were blended with timeless melodies to impact mainstream music and culture. His debut album Late Last Night, produced by Lex Price (Mindy Smith) and mixed by Roger Moutenot (Yo La Tengo, Roseanne Cash), was released in May of 2008 and features an impressive list of guest performers including Mindy Smith, Jeff Coffin, Thad Cockrell, Jill Andrews of the Everybodyfields, John Deaderick (Patty Griffin), Andrea Zonn (James Taylor) and more.

With a capacity of only 50 people this really is the venue to come to! Check the Website for full details

Mundell Music 2010

A Happy New Year to one and all!
Lets hope that it will be a good one and a peaceful one.
We have been selling quite a few Tickts over the Festive Period and we have very few Tickets left for 'Paul Jones & Dave Kelly', 'Snowy White' and a couple of others which escape me! Please check out the WebSite and you all can expect a few changes to the site within the next few weeks. The weather has not been good has it!!!!!! Snow and more snow...just as my vintage Land Rover decided that it needed a new tyre and of course has been out of action just when I needed it! Jaguars are never very good in the snow I'm afraid.
Charlie & Billy enjoyed their Christmas down in Yorkshire where they had the run of the House so to speak.......formed a 'gang' with their host 'Hector' and so we had three mad Cairn Terriers on the loose! Life will start to become 'normal' again during the next week when the business world will rear it's head after a long lay off for the Christmas Holidays and we will soon see how many casualties there will be with different Businesses going bust due to a sustained hard and tough period of trading.
