Seán Gray, originally from Ayrshire and now making his mark in Glasgow, is regarded as a trailblazer in the world of folk music.
With a rich and diverse musical background which spans from being a sought-after session player to a former member of the acclaimed Paul McKenna Band, he is reshaping the folk music landscape through his innovative and moving compositions.
His album, Fixed Assets, is a testament to his commitment to preserving the stories and heritage of the Ayrshire mining communities, all conveyed in the distinctive Lallans Scots dialect.
Lewis Stevenson, originally hailing from the northernmost reaches of mainland Scotland, now lives in Inverness where he finds inspiration in the breathtaking landscapes and captivating narratives that surround him.
His musical journey has taken him from the vibrant stages of punk-pop bands across Scotland to the serene world of folk-inspired storytelling.
His music is described as a heartfelt exploration of life's experiences, wrapped in folk-tinged harmonies and brought to life through his poetic lyricism.
The Inverness Acoustic Music Club is supported by Creative Scotland Heritage Lottery funding.
Tickets for the event cost £10 with limited concessions at £8.50. A small booking fee applies.
