I have some news! Chris’s Gigs is venturing out into the world again so we have organised another exciting concert in Comrie for your entertainment. 

This will take place in the Comrie Rural Hall and we are limiting numbers to 50. Tickets will be available online at Eventbrite and in Hansen's Kitchen. The links for tickets are below. If you can, please do buy online (booking fees apply - sorry!).  

We ask that all attendees take a lateral flow test the day of the gig. We also ask that masks are worn on entry to the hall and if moving around.  They don't need to be worn through the concert.

Ross Couper and Tom Oakes 
Comrie Rural Hall
Saturday 11th December

Ross Couper from Shetland (Glasgow) and Tom Oakes from Devon (Edinburgh) are a fiddle and guitar duo deeply rooted in the traditions of Scotland and Ireland but with a vital modernity that chronicles their many musical journeys so far. Expect a highly dynamic mixture of power and fragility with a warmth and humour that leaves audiences exhilarated and entertained.

The duo come with some heavyweight credentials, on top of being shortlisted for Album of the Year in the 2017 Scots Trad Awards. Ross was nominated for Instrumentalist of the Year in the 2015 Scots Trad Awards and his explosive fiddle playing lies at the heart of the mighty Peatbog Faeries, whilst Tom was nominated for the same 'Instrumentalist of the Year' in 2019! He is a multi-award-winning guitarist, flautist, producer and composer. His other musical talents are highlighted within his work as a founder of the genre-defying Auvo Quartet, head honcho of his own project - the Tom Oakes Experiment - and one third of the terrifically experimental OBT.

Fiddle meets guitar. Foot-tappingly banging. Ear-pleasingly melodic. A beautifully rich combination of string on string that oozes with charisma. Ross and Tom keep their music simple – spine-tingling tunes with a sprinkle of banter. Without doubt – Couper and Oakes are a full throttle force to be reckoned with.
