Edinburgh singer-songwriter Norman Lamont will play a small friendly concert at An Cridhe on the Isle of Coll on Wednesday August 7.
Norman said: ‘I am trying to get away from the normal pubs and clubs of the capital to play in places I’d like to see for the first time. With the help of an organisation called The Touring Network, I contacted the An Cridhe centre and arranged a solo concert. My wife and I will be coming over and I’m looking forward as much to seeing the island as I am to playing the concert.’
The show promises an intimate evening with one of Edinburgh’s finest singer-songwriters. Norman is not the kind of singer-songwriter who mopes into the microphone about his personal issues. Expect poignant and emotional moments but also dry humour, animal puns, stories of strange eye transplants and meeting Bob Dylan.
