20 October: Hector Gilchrist: Songs from North and South of the border, beautifully sung by an understated craftsman

Tickets £9 on the door or £7 + booking fee if booked online

Ayrshire born and raised Hector Gilchrist has sung from an early age. The songs of his Home Country together with a wide range of traditional and contemporary material forms the core of his repertoire.
Though a regular performer Hector was never a full time professional but retirement from the ‘day job’ has recently allowed him to increase appearances at folk venues and festivals throughout the UK and beyond.

Acknowledged as a fine and sensitive interpreter of the Songs of Robert Burns and always in demand during the Burns “Season”, he conveys the Bard’s (and other’s) songs and ballads, a depth of beauty and faithfulness the envy of many a balladeer. The storyline and melody of these songs never fails to engage audiences, enhanced and supported with a refreshingly uncomplicated guitar technique.

He has recently boosted his catalogue of recordings on the renowned Wild Goose label, with the release of his fourth CD “Gleanings” details of which can be found on his website.

At TwickFolk, Hector will be accompanied by Hazel Richings, member of the recently resurgent duo Hissyfit.
