Ross Ainslie & Tim Edey Recorded Live at TPot Studios and brought to you by the wonders of the Internet.

In the absence of  'normal service' we thought you might like a reminder of the brilliance of the musicians we 'normally' bring to you live at Folk in the Barn. So here after 16 months of the 'P' word is our first online concert and who better than these two musical geniuses. Well known  and loved by Folk in the Barn audiences. 

"Award-winning multi instrumentalists who are 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."

"Please join us for a live zoom after the gig starting at 21:45, if you have any questions you’d like to ask us this would be the time!

You can access the Zoom link from the booking app.

Hope you enjoy the gig and see you after for a chat!"  Ross & Tim
