Ross Couper and Tom Oakes at Montrose Folk Club

30 August 2022, 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Ross Couper and Tom Oakes

Ross Couper and Tom Oakes are a fiddle and guitar duo, deeply rooted in the traditions of Scotland and Ireland, but with a vital modernity, which reflects their musical experiences to date.

The explosive fiddle playing of Ross Couper, from Shetland, is the foundation stone of the mighty Peatbog Faeries.Originally from Devon, but now based in Glasgow, Tom Oakes is a multi-award winning guitarist, flautist and composer, who was a founder member of the genre-defying Auvo Quartet.

Over the past seven years, Ross and Tom have played three sell-out concerts at Celtic Connections, as well as touring Australia, Denmark and Sweden. Expect their concert at Montrose Playhouse to feature their trademark unrivalled energy and virtuosity, interspersed with moments of spine-tingling beauty, as well as a warmth and humour, which guarantees a smile on the face.

Tickets (£11) are available on the door can be reserved by emailing
