The Fran McGillivray Band

Presented by Ma Bessie Productions

Originally the McGillivray Burke folk duo they soon morphed into the urban blues band 'So Long Angel'. Able to write their own 'traditional' songs Fran and Mike's blues voice has developed as a warm expression of life as it is lived. With Roger Nunn on drums and percussion they are able to drive on or lay it back at will. Three superb musicians with a wealth of talent and experience they are ready to play their blues for you.

The Fran McGillivray band’s live shows and recordings reflect this diversity and have been widely acclaimed by reviewers across the roots spectrum:

"Splendid!" Paul Jones Radio 2

“A new twist on old music”. Rock 'n' Reel

“Very impressive”. Robin Denselow, The Guardian

“Heartbreakingly poignant one minute, rousingly upbeat the next” Colin Irwin, FRoots
