Make this Good Friday a Very Good Friday when TwentyTen in association with Netsounds host Woodenbox and Randolph’s Leap on in March at Eden Court’s One Touch Theatre.

Both acts will be familiar to many in the north with numerous gig and festival appearances between them. Woodenbox have established themselves as one of the most exciting live bands in Scotland and their return north with their wild, vivid and moving brand of folk rock with a mariachi twist will no doubt kick off a few Easter weekends.

Signed to Olive Grove Records, a byword for quality, their most recent release, the 2015 Foreign Organir?t=wwwinvernessg 21&l=as2&o=2&a=B00X91PPEI - A Good Friday album met critical acclaim with the likes of Ravechild saying “With vaunting ambition and effortless song craft, Woodenbox have transcended their folk-rock roots and released one of the year’s best albums”. That was 2015 so it will be interesting to see what heights Woodenbox scale in 2016.

Officially guests on the night are Glasgow-based melody merchants Randolph’s Leap. An eight piece musical outfit led by Adam Ross and recently signed to Lost Map Records, the band have won over many new fans thanks to their appearances at T in the Park, Green Man, Celtic Connections, Wickerman, Belladrum and Fence Records’ Home Game, Away Game and Eye O’The Dug Festival.

We’ve described Adam Scott as “delivering witty songs, clever lyrics and a knack for telling a story, something that is all too rare in these times of insipid pop songs about love and rejection”. There is a lot going on with Randolph’s Leap, not just lyrically but musically too.

Interested? The gig is on the 25th of March with seat prices are £8.00 in advance , get them on line now, and £10.00 on the day.

Chartered surveyor by day, music reviewer by night, and occasionally I get to use my camera. A strange mix, but one that I enjoy. A chance meeting in the queue for Bella in 2010 led to the opportunity to write for InvernessGigs; a far cry from the days of writing for a football fanzine back in the late 80s, early 90s. My interests lie between the mainstream, the emerging and the local. Increasingly I find that we have more than enough locally to entertain us to necessitate a trip south. I’m always happy to give a listen, whatever the genre. Inverness has a plethora of talent, all of which I am more than keen to write about. If it encourages just one person to make the effort to listen to some new music I’ll be happy. You can contact Frank direct via frankieboyfin@gmail.com
