Kirkcaldy Aciustic Music Club has dfone more than anyone to keep live music in the town.

it has hosted many great nights at the Polish Club, and played host to some of the biggest names too.

As part of the FP100 we invited the club to pick its own memorable gigs from through the years:

St Andrew & the Rare Wee Helps

The support band, the Rare Wee Helps were Michael Marra and Kevin McFarlane.

Siobhan Miller

Twice Scots singer of the year. Young, beautiful, steeped in traditional music yet modern and edgy.

Dennis Alexander

Gone, but certainly not forgotten. Dennis’ gigs always pulled in a crowd in Fife. His mix of folk and fun was hugely entertaining.

Michael Marra

The late, great superb, gentle and unassuming, gravel voiced songwriter. One of Scotland’s finest.

Scalded Cats

The Fife favourites have been consistent crowd-pleasers, with a superb mix of bluegrass and folk music.

Session A9

Incredibly we managed to cram them all into the Polish Club! They tour the world and play huge festivals. Every one a virtuoso.

The Wilders

The American super band who only came to the Polish Club because their bass player’s grandad was originally from Poland.
