The Benderloch Palladium continues it’s summer of sizzling events on Saturday (July 13) when Glasgow acoustic trio Snuffbox make their debut.

Mixing traditional tunes with contemporary flair, as well as quirky, original material, Snuffbox melds old and new to create entirely their own sound.

A review in The Times said of the band: ‘Music with a great sense of spontaneity in its superbly varied dynamics, easy interchanging of melodic, harmonic and percussive roles, its often raw emotions and sheer character.’

Having released an album in 2016, Snuffbox have since enjoyed playing a wide variety of venues, with recent highlights including performances at BOWfest 2018, the Scots Fiddle Festival and the MG Alba Scots Trad Music Awards.

Snuffbox cellist Ruffus Huggan told us: There is formidable precedent for music at Victory Halls and we are delighted to be included alongside the wonderful bands that have performed there before.

‘It’s also a new venue for us, so we’re excited to play some new music to match.

‘Hopefully we will have time before we leave for some of the local seafood too!’

Based in Glasgow the trio comprise Charlie on fiddle; Rufus Huggan on cello; and 2018 Young Traditional Musician of the Year  finalist, Luc McNally on guitar and vocals.

The doors open at 7.30pm for an 8pm start.

Tickets are £15 on the door and £12 in advance by calling 01631 720247, or email: campbell_cameron@msn.com

Snuffbox are also performing in Drimnin Chapel on Monday July 15 as part of the Morvern Games and Gala Week.
