Ross Ainslie & Tim Edey Live From TPot Studios
Thu 17 Jun 2021
Award-winning musical geniuses, old friends and two of the best musicians of their generation come together for a rare virtual performance filmed at TPot studios in Ross’ native Perthshire and Tim’s adopted home. These are uncertain times and the chances of gigs returning anytime soon are fairly slim so hopefully this wee gig will lift your spirits and give you some much needed optimism. We both really enjoyed playing together again and we must say a huge thank you to Robin Evans for recording the gig, Vickie Evans for filming and Calum Grant for filming and editing.
Ross and Tim will join every venue for a 15-minute zoom call just before start time to say "Hi" and answer any questions you might want to ask.
