Malcolm McWatt – 7pm
As the driving force behind London country-rock band The Glass Mountains, Malcolm MacWatt has already gained recognition for his powerful song-writing. But it’s as a solo performer, swapping out his telecaster for an acoustic guitar, where his story-telling comes to the fore, often with brutal clarity. He writes about love, loss, guilt and loneliness with recurring themes of home, connection and family. By paring songs down to the absolute minimum he allows the lyrics and melodies to take priority. A 4 Star review for his latest album “Three Truths and The Chord” in Maverick Magazine further reinforces his songwriter credentials.
