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.

A second compilation album 'George Street Sessions 2' will be released in October

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

Although I still regularly attend open mic sessions, and do solo and duo gigs (with keyboard player, Martin Rhydderch) …. our band Mike Bowden & the A917 is now taking up most of my time. Our first album 'Gravy Train' is now released (soon to be available both as download and physical cd, direct from this site!) …. and our gig list is growing! We intend to tour extensively in 2020

Excerpts from the album, plus video from Carlisle Blues Festivals can be accessed from the A917 page on this site
