Black Cat Jook Band & The Coaltown Daisies Saturday 12 November | 8pm | Milnathort Town Hall | Tickets £8 (£6 concession) | BYOB is a Fife-based five-piece string band bringing alive the sounds of the American South in the 30s and 40s playing ‘vintage Americana’. They feature jug band music, country blues, ragtime, skiffle and Vaudeville, on guitars, ukulele, mandolin, harmonica, tuba, washboards and tea chest bass. Their music reflects the good-time hokum side of the blues, with a special fondness for the music of Big Bill bronzy, Memphis Minnie and their friends. The evening will kick off in fine style with the Coaltown Daisies, who are making their third appearance at the Kinross Winter Festival. ‘Best Folk Performance’ winners, Lynzy Moutter and Vivienne Bern write and perform folk, soul and Americana

music. They bring together the musical styles of established singer-songwriters and showcase their original songs with excellent harmonies, intelligent lyrics and raw emotion. They have recently released their debut album “ This Old House” which includes some of Scotland’s most highly credited musicians. This will be a concert with a great variety of music styles and instruments! Definitely not to be missed!

“That Lovin' Feeling” Friday 11 and Saturday 12 November / 7pm / Loch Leven Community Campus / Tickets £7 (£5 concession, 18 and under) Lucy Duffy returns for a fourth year to the festival with a brand new comedy musical ‘That Lovin’ Feeling’. Following the successes of ‘One Night on Broadway’ and ‘Another Night on Broadway’, Lucy and her cast of 14, selected from stage schools and youth theatre, will perform a comedy musical featuring hit songs from the 50s and 60s. Once again, the production will be fully costumed with professional sound and lighting. Profits will be donated to charity and so far Lucy and her cast have donated over £6500.

The Story Laura is a budding songwriter who, as a girl, isn’t taken seriously by the local record company. By chance, she meets Troy, and needs to find a way to convince him to perform her songs. The action takes place around Downtown Records where we meet various characters and discover their complicated and comic relationship issues. ‘That Lovin’ Feeling’ is a comedy musical featuring over 20 hit songs, including ‘Say A Little Prayer’, ‘Burning Love’, ‘Reet Petite’, ‘Close To You’ and ‘Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow’. Come along for a feel-good evening of great music, great dancing and unforgettable fashion trends of the era.
