Autumn’s kicking in!

Posted on: October 11th, 2016 by Blueflint No Comments

The leaves are hitting the pavements in Edinburgh, and Clare and Deborah are continuing a highly enjoyable residency at Woodland Creatures in Leith under the auspices of Martha’s Parlour. The duo are performing on the first and third Wednesday of every month and are back on Wednesday 19th October with more fine tunes! To whet your appetite listen to a couple of songs from the Blueflint repertoire:

Takes more than a little time from first album ‘High Bright Morning’

High country from second album ‘Maudy Tree’

More of the band’s videos are on our Videos webpage

The band are busy booking in for gigs during 2017 – watch this space!

Martha’s Parlour return to the woods!

Posted on: September 6th, 2016 by Blueflint No Comments

Clare and Deborah’s ‘Martha’s Parlour’ will head back to the woods tomorrow night when they resume their residency at Leith’s Woodland Creatures . We’re delighted that the fantastic fiddle player Jo Jeffries has kindly offered to stand in for Deborah this week, as she’s down in London performing in the Gate Theatre’s ‘Diary of a Madman’. So you can expect fiddle and banjo intertwining in old-time ballads and songs, as well as a few pickings from our original material.

We kick off at 8.30pm and will return on the first and third Wednesday of the month. So as autumn creeps in upon us and the nights get darker, get yourself cosy with a drink in the lovely surrounds of Woodland Creatures and enjoy the tunes!

Summer is finally making an appearance and the sound of banjos will be bouncing around the stonework on Leith Walk this coming month! Deborah and Clare are continuing a very enjoyable stint at Leith’s Woodland Creatures in their guise as Martha’s Parlour. The duo are playing sets of ballads and original material on the first and third Wednesdays of the month. Later on in the month, Blueflint are looking forward to playing as part of the wonderful LeithLate festival again this year with two appearances, one at Silverhub Studios on Thursday 23rd and the best record and bookstore in town: Elvis Shakespeare on Saturday 25th.
