Aberfeldy in KC

Polished popsters from Scotland, Aberfeldy, return to KC and can be heard tomorrow evening at 7:00pm playing the former Molloy's Irish Pub - which we should now revert to referring to as The Record Bar, what with St Patrick's Day over and the big tent down and all.

Aberfeldy played in KC last year and I saw them at WJ McBride's Irish Pub. I've also heard them on BBC Radio 1 and Radio 2 - a feat in itself given the different identities of both stations, and is probably due to the fact that they're relatively young but their music harks back to 80s british pop.

In that gig they played their signature pop tunes and some very different but equally accomplished country music. Contemporary Scottish music, like contemporary Irish music, suffers from the conservative streak that allowed traditional forms to flourish, but the combination that night of Johnny Cash meets The Buggles left Wyandotte County rather perplexed.
