Here’s the page link with photo, video, audio link, bio, etc  – will be posting any TST news and info there…

STFU Tour next week – Newbury, North Devon and Bridport…

Posted on: April 2nd, 2014 by STFU

Ok…so…after that fantastic run of shows in the Highlands last week we’re approaching the last bit of UK touring in 2014 (unless some mid-November gigs I’m working on work out – they’re still TBC)…Dirk has something on next week so sadly won’t be on the shows but we do have an excellent dep in the form of ex STFU-er and Blueflint-er Roddy Neilson on the fiddle again for the first time since the Orkney Folk Festival three years ago…the gigs are Newbury on Thu 10th April, then Woolacombe Village Hall in North Devon on Fri 11th April and finishing up with a concert at Bridport Arts Centre (with support from the hugely entertaining Stompin Dave Allen) on Sat 12th April…here’s the links for tickets…

STFU Tour in the Highlands Tue 25th to Sat 29th March

Posted on: March 18th, 2014 by STFU

We’re on tour in Scotland next week and these will most likely be the last Scottish gigs of 2014 (bar a hometown Edinburgh concert later in the year)…


The tour starts next Tuesday 25th March and for the first gig we’re back in Inverness at the Eden Court – a hometown gig itself for new double bass player Craig Macfadyen – before we head across to Plockton (my first time there) to play the Village Hall on Wed 26th March…that’s a BYOB gig, plus there’ll be a raffle of some kind to benefit the music school there in Plockton…


We continue on the Thursday 27th March by heading across the bridge to Skye and our debut concert there at Aros Arts Centre just outside Portree…then on the friday we have a good wee drive across to Banchory and our third visit to the Woodend Barn Arts Centre (I think 2008 and 2011 were the other two years we appeared there and it’s always been a great gig to play)…before we head down to Birnam Arts Centre on the Sat 29th March and finish up in another town we’ve been to before (where we played at ‘The Fiddle Tree’ club in the big old hotel there just over the road from Birnam Arts Centre) but not for ages…


Ok, as ever the full details are on the tour page –


Tue 25th March – Eden Court Theatre, Inverness

Wed 26th March – Plockton Village Hall Highland

Thu 27th March – Aros Arts Centre – Isle Of Skye.

Fri 28th March – Woodend Barn – Banchory.

Sat 29th March – Birnam Arts Centre – Birnam.
