An Evening With Richard Jobson at the Ironworks in September 2019

The Ironworks will be presenting An Evening with Richard Jobson of The Skids on Saturday 7 September 2019.  The night will see special guests Bruce and Jamie Watson of Big Country joining Richard.

From school punk to modern day film producer Richard Jobson has lived a full and colourful life. A harrowing incident as a child that left him suffering with epilepsy but he was 15 years old when he launched the punk rock band The Skids in 1977 with his songwriting partner Stuart Adamson. With hit singles including the immortal ‘Into The Valley‘, after four albums The Skids folded and Jobson formed The Armoury Show whilst Adamson moved on to form his new band Big Country.

In June 2013, he was awarded an honorary degree (Doctor of Arts) from Edinburgh Napier University. With a life that has gone full circle in 2017 he reactivated The Skids. A successful UK tour prompted demand for more shows in 2018 as well as the band’s first new album for over three decades, making this the perfect time to write his memoirs ‘Into The Valley‘ which was released in 2018 by Wymer Publishing.

Joining Richard tonight will be Bruce & Jamie Watson of Big Country who will perform their own set before joining Richard for acoustic renditions of his back catalogue.

I've always loved music and spent my late teens and early twenties playing guitar in various bands on Lewis and Aberdeen. Other than playing in some truly terrifying pubs in Aberdeen not much came of it and life became focused on family and having a 'proper' job. Inverness Gigs is an outlet for me to quell my inner frustrated musician and the caliber of local acts has even inspired me to take my own music more seriously again. Who knows, one day I might venture back on stage under the fierce scrutiny of an Inverness Gigs reviewer! You can contact Toby direct at Toby@Igi.gs
