  1. So, not sure if this is the right place to post this (maybe should be in the classifieds *shrugs*) but what the hey... I'm a singer (and, i'm ashamed to say, Only a Singer, can't play instruments) my name is Ian, I'm 23 and I'm looking for a band to jam with and/or perform with. My vocal range sits at about Tenor-Alto (So solid middle to shallow high). I've got a great ear and can sing smoothly or roughly with solid projection (and, crucially, In key). . In terms of what i'm interested in playing: I'm easy really. I'd be quite happy just covering existing popular songs or tackling original compositions, i don't mind (with one exception, i will not under any circumstances be singing "Wagon Wheel" by Darius Rucker ). I can give you a good idea of what i'm taking about, what kinda music I'd wanna play by just listing off a few bands, i guess (that i like and can sing comfortably): R.E.M Alice in Chains The Black Angels Clutch David Bowie The Doors Pixies Lou Reed My Morning Jacket (wishful thinking with this one, really) Mastodon (with difficulty, but i assure you) Pearl Jam Radiohead Paul Simon Bob Dylan That kinda thing, but again, i'm easy and open to suggestions (as long as it's interesting/has some edge to it - can't be arsed with Top 40 stuff) Oh and i have a dad who'll lend me his P.A. system If anyone's interested don't hesitate to send me a message or email me at: Ipriest54753@Gmail.com, Much love .
  2. Hi Folks Just wanted to promote my latest publication: Kids Can Learn Guitar (The Eight Note Method) Book One (and Book 2 - no bugs allowed) Before I moved to Shetland, I was a peripatetic music teacher in schools and in private homes. Frustrated with the lack of logical guitar teaching books I wrote my own - it was huge success across the county. I have now published two paperback A4 books on Amazon. The practice pieces are also available for download or play on my website. I'm also unique in that I offer online guitar/teaching advice to people who buy my guitar teaching book. The books include humorous cartoon characters that give tips, and get up to mischief to make learning fun. Contact me via DM or on my website for further information or for online guitar lessons via webcam. Avalina Kreska
  3. The Oxjam Shetland Takeover returns for it's 3rd year this weekend - on Sat 25th October. 4 venues | Dozens of local artists | 1 wristband From 2pm until 2am, Lerwick will come alive with various gigs of all sorts of genres, dotted all around the town, showcasing the great musical talents Shetland has to offer. This 12 HOUR musical extravaganza will take place in the Lerwick Boating Club, Posers, Baroc and the Lerwick Legion. There will something for everyone - folk, metal, blues, rock, acoustic and jazz. The gigs at each venue are staggered throughout the day, so you can attend as much as you like, hopping from one place to another with an all access wristband. Wristbands for 18+ are priced at £10 and you will have full access to all the venues - provided you get there early enough! Wristbands for under 18s are priced at £6 and that can get you into the Legion and the Lerwick Boating Club. The Oxjam Takeover is a family friendly day - children under 5 can attend for free, and must be accompanied by a responsible adult. This year, Baroc will host our Oxjam afterparty. Entry will be £2 with a wristband, and £5 without. Oxjam is organised entirely by volunteers, and all musicians are donated their time and skills for nothing. All proceeds go to Oxfam as part of their annual, UK-wide music festival to raise money and awareness for their important work around the world. Local music, global impact.

  4. Oxjam Shetland’s Buskathon is back for another year! The third annual Buskathon will take place on Saturday 30th August, at various points along ‘Da Street’. For one day only, the team have recruited some buskers to brighten up the street with live music. We have both well-known musicians who fill up venues every weekend, to those who usually only perform in the comfort of their own home, occupying several 'busking stations', taking it in turns to show off Shetland's musical talent, and raising money for Oxfam while doing so. So take a wander along the street on Sat 30th, and show these amazing people some support! It’s all about raising money for a great cause, while promoting our local music scene and all it has to offer. If you fancy being more than just a passing spectator, there’s still plenty of time to volunteer for a little bit of busking yourself. Get in touch! Email oxjamshetland2014@gmail.com, or phone Ashlea Tulloch, Takeover Manager, on 07799281996. We’ve had everything from bagpipes to harps in the past – there’s a spot for everyone! If you’d like to find out more about Oxjam Shetland and our big annual Takeover on Sat 25th Oct, please search for us on facebook and check out our page. To find out more about volunteering opportunities with us, please get in touch via the contact information above. We’d love to hear from you. Local music, global impact.

    SHETFEST 2014

    Shetfest is a one day, not-for-profit all-ages music festival held in Lerwick, Shetland. Shetfest aims to bring the best up and coming, unsigned, and alternative music talent to the Shetland Islands. We aim to do this whilst keeping ticket prices in line with or cheaper than similar events on the mainland. Shetfest 2014 will be the second edition of the festival, following the success of Shetfest 2013, which saw prominent bands on the Scottish alternative scene such as PAWS, The Murderburgers, Halfrican and The Fire & I. This years lineup includes visiting acts Pinact, Chris Devotion & The Expectations, Deathcats, Billy Liar, Algernon Doll, Poor Things, Black International, Kill Surrrf, The Walking Targets, Maxwells Dead and Black Cop, aswell as local favourites Frankeneinstein and Brundlehorse. Shetfest 2014 will also play host to the debut live set of local hip-hop artist Audiopium. This year Shetfest will be held on Saturday the 5th of July, at the The Lerwick Legion. This is an all ages event. Contact: shetfest2014@gmail.com Tickets and more information of Shetfest 2014 can be found on our website www.shetfest.co.uk
