Jim and Susie Malcolm
Ukrainian Community Centre, 14 Royal Terrace, Edinburgh EH7 5AB
For the past 30 years and more, Jim Malcolm has been the ultimate Scots troubadour, taking the traditional songs of Scotland and his own prizewinning compositions to all corners of the UK and around almost every state in the USA. His voice is one of the finest in Scotland, and his mellifluous guitar playing is the perfect accompaniment. He plays mouthorgan to a standard youll rarely hear.
This year Jim has another trick up his sleeve, as his wife Susie breaks loose from the office to join him in concert. You may have heard her voice singing harmonies on Jims CDs, but with their children off to pastures new Susie is now entering stage left.
An award-winning traditional singer herself, Susie sings songs from the North East and has a penchant for ballads. Their 2017 debut album as a duo, Spring Will Follow On was warmly received and has been widely played across two continents.
Together Jim and Susie offer harmonies and humour tales from the road, the riverside and the home front. Really, indeed, a performance not to be missed.
