Just over a week until we head south to beautiful Biggar for our gig at Clydesdale Folk Club Thursday 30th March is the date for your diaries folks! And in a bumper week of musical treats, our very good friends the wondrous Southern Tenant Folk Union play Soundhouse at the Traverse on Monday 27th. Staying in on a Monday night? You’ve got to be kidding! Get yourself along there and enjoy some great sounds!

We’ll be getting out and about around this lovely country of ours with a few gig dates coming up soon and later in the year! March sees us in the rolling Pentland Hills with a date in beautiful Biggar at the Clydesdale Folk Club. We’ll be seeing in May at Dunfermline Folk Club, and ushering in autumn at Falkirk Folk Club!

It was great to kick off the Soundhouse programme for 2017 on Monday 16th January. After a peek at the rest of the programme, there’s plenty more great music to come this year, including the wondrous Southern Tenant Folk Union in March: http://www.soundhouse.org.uk/events/

Check it out and get along to the Traverse – you couldn’t ask for a better start to your weeks!!

The band are raring to go for this week’s gig at Carlisle’s Old Fire Station. Really looking forward to this gig and a return to Carlisle – we have very happy memories of previous gigs in the area; both under our own steam and as a support act for The Proclaimers back in 2012.

We hit the stage on Friday 27th January at 8.00pm – get your tickets!! 

First 2017 dates!

As we say farewell to 2016, let’s look forward to 2017! Blueflint have got some lovely gigs lined up to start off the new year! On Monday 16th January, we’ll be at Soundhouse @ the Traverse in Edinburgh. We always love playing for Sound House – they put on a great programme of music in the capital, so get yourself along to the Traverse Bar on 16th!

Towards the end of the month, we’re south-bound for Carlisle to see some familiar faces and perform a gig in new arts venue The Old Fire Station. If you’re in that neck of the woods on Friday 27th January, we’ll see you there!

We’ll be back again in the new year for more performances at this absolute gem of a venue on Leith Walk!
