Glasgow-based The Daddy Naggins play high energy, blistering bluegrass, Southern fried Americana, and cask-strength folk songs, all with a Scottish twist.
The Daddy Naggins were formed in 2010 by Darren Young (Guitarist/Vocalist) and Garry McFadden (Banjoist/Vocalist) with the intention of playing music of the Celtic diaspora that had the energy of punk and the drive of bluegrass. Before long they were joined by Patrick Dunn on Flutes and Pipes (their Bostonian connection) and Laura Beth Salter (Mandolin, Vocals) and Hazel Finlay (Bass Fiddle, Vocals).
Edinburgh Folk Club is an organisation which exists to foster an interest in the wide international world of folk and related musics. It is not compulsory to be a member to be able to attend the club’s weekly shows – just turn up and pay the admission charge at the door. The club held its first meeting on Wednesday 3 October 1973 and has been in continuous existence since then.
