 Plaidsong - 12th March at 7.30 pm

Nicky and Syd live in Bankfoot, near Perth, Scotland and have collaborated musically for several years, before forming PlaidSong in 2017. They combine historical research interests with traditional, original singing/songwriting drawing on the age-old tradition of finding and learning songs from the many cultural sources of Scotland, adapting and reworking old tunes and new words. Syd started playing guitar with friends aged 14 and progressed through various bands, duos and solo performances, often featuring his own compositions. Nicky has sung since the age of 9 when she entered Scots song competitions. She has sung with various groups and operatic societies as well as singing solo. They have performed around Scotland, as well as in London, Ireland, France, and, most recently, in New Zealand.
