THE ‘home of King Creosote’ is due to host the first Scottish performance from one of Down Under’s best buskers.
Newly arrived from Australia, Jenny Biddle has five albums under her belt, the title of Melbourne’s Best Busker 2010-2012 and will be performing at Crail Folk Club next week.
Club spokesperson, Tony Kingsbury, said: “Jenny will capture your heart with her intuitive lyrics, dirty blues harmonica, impressive guitar licks coupled with weird facial expressions, endearing stage banter, with a voice to melt your core.
“We are delighted to be one of, if not the first show in the UK since her arrival. An entertainer for sure, so a good night awaits.”
Jenny relocated to Scotland earlier this year and is working on material for her sixth album which will feature her 20 years of guitar experience including explorations of alternate tunings.
You can catch her at 8pm, on Thursday 10 March, at the Crail Folk Club in the Crail Town Hall.
Tickets at £7 are sold at the door on the night.
Jenny’s appearance is only one of many fine guest nights lined up by the folk club, with acts such as North Sea Gas, Tannahill Weavers, Mairearad Green & Anna Massie still to appear later this year.

• We welcome seasoned musicians, beginners and those that just want to come along and listen in a friendly atmosphere. During Singers’ nights we feature local singers and musicians. Our music policy for guest nights is simple – it must be good quality, style of music doesn’t matter but it must entertain. All are welcome. If you don’t want to make music then just come along and tap your feet.
