3 Things About RioMacRae

There are 3 things folk always ask us about. One is about our lovely old dog Bronwyn who is often present at our gigs. We have no idea how old she is as she is a rescue dog and was found wandering the streets in Wales. She is showing her age lately with her grey... Continue Reading →

Bumped Into John Lennon

We tracked this down today after playing in Almeria recently. Always loved him and his unique music. Also cannot believe it is nearly 40 years since we lost him. Rave on through your great work, John Lennon!

Club Desierto 31 March

The weather threatened to wipe us out, like the other local events, but we hung in there and had the Club D inside the gallery at Albar. We love playing there as the acoustics seem favourable.  Shaun Faulkner was our guest with an accomplished set of his own music, including his resonator guitar songs. We... Continue Reading →

Almeria Gig 29 March 2019

Our guest was John Bremer who did a number of original songs and guitar instrumentals which went down really well as John is an accomplished guitarist. And it's not often we get to hear him...

Tracks from the old album Colfax and new album Imperial. This band can really play! Exciting times! Featured image is of half of... Continue Reading →
