Right Here ... Right now

The East Neuk of Fife is a magical place!! ….. The quality of the light has attracted many artists... and something in the air, or maybe the water, has created a vibrant musical community. I am proud to be a part of that community.

I arrived in St Monans seven years ago, and now refuse to leave!

There is a wide diversity of musical styles within the community, and this has encouraged me to leave my comfort zone in a number of collaborations.

A cd 'the George Street Sessions', featuring many of the East Neuk musicians has been released, and proved to be a great success!!

I am currently accepting gigs for these projects

MIKE BOWDEN and the A917 BAND … An original blues based, guitar driven quartet …. incorporating many influences, but remaining true to the blues!! The band fills the hole left by Blue Swamp... and is perfect for festivals.

RENEGADE HEARTS … Playing everything from Americana to Gypsy Jazz, the Renegade Hearts can adapt to any event or venue!

MIKE BOWDEN … My bread and butter! … Performing solo, or with Big Vern on percussion and vocals, this is acoustic based music of quality!! A mixture of original songs and carefully selected covers … plus plenty of good humour and tales from a life 'on the road'.. Can, and will, play anywhere!!
