Cupar Blues and Beyond Club is to build on the successful start to its autumn season by hosting another two acclaimed bands.

The club’s next session, on November 7, will feature gigs by Hot Tin Roof and Fraser John Lindsay’s Blues Incentive , both well-known on the Scottish blues scene.

The evening kicks off with an acoustic set from Hot Tin Roof, an Edinburgh-based trio formed three years ago, who’ve made their name playing original, ambient bluesy tunes about life and the world we live in.

Gigging regularly around Scotland, mainly in Edinburgh and Glasgow, they have a distinctive sound that’s been well received by music fans throughout Scotland.

To see Fraser John Lindsay’s Blues Incentive live on stage has been described as ‘ a truly energetic and vibrant experience, during which slow burning ballads, ‘southern comfort’ grooves and meaty, good ole blues all come together at the devil’s crossroads.’

A Glasgow-based outfit, they interpret blues classics by the likes of Robert Johnson, Freddie King, Howlin’ Wolf and T-Bone Walker in their own unique style.

“Everything about the band is pure dynamite,” says Cupar Blues and Beyond Club’s Charlie Milne.

“The excitement is further emphasised by guitarist Fraser John Lindsay’s mean riffs, and blues-soul vocalist Charlotte Marshall’s fiery performance.”

The gig will be held at the club’s usual venue, Watts in Cupar, at 8pm.

Tickets are on sale at the venue or from www.onfife.com
