Event Description

Texas Tim Scott & Matt Morrow atThe Bisciuts and Gravy House Concert Scoraig

Tim Scott and Matt Morrow are at it again. A performance not to miss! After receiving such a warm response from their previous Texas tour the two have decided to pair up again and travel the Lone Star State before heading to the UK for the summer. 

Tim and Matt met when a mutual friend and music promoter paired them for their first UK tour two years ago. Armed with Tim Scott's "Lyle Lovett"-like vocals and Matt's finger picking guitar style, the pair combine their hand-crafted songs creating a Texan-Scotsman pairing that has created a lot of buzz.

Texas based Tim Scott is most notably an intriguing songsmith. Each of his songs entail strong storylines and compelling characters. His love for world history is apparent in many of his songs as well as his tongue-in-cheek view of life around him. 

Matt Morrow is known across the UK circuit as a master of acoustic finger style. He plays his guitar with such finesse and musical agility that it appears effortless. His songs have a celtic flair accompanied with a feel for roots music that wins him praise on both sides of the pond.

The combination of the pairing draws from folk, americana, celtic and more. It's thru the respect of each others work and precious time spent playing together that they have created their own musical niche. They bring a unique freshness to their audience bouncing between their individually penned songs in turn creating an energetic live show.

“The best part of this musical relationship is that we became instant friends”, Tim says, “I have a friend for life with Matt and I couldn’t be happier that our paths have crossed.”

You make some good points but we do want to encourage people to be mindful of the fact that when they invite people, everyone gets an email, which - even if they've signed up to follow you - is not something they necessarily want all the time. We want to make ND useful for people to share info with their friends and followers, but it's not effective if the communication ends up turning people off. We understand where you're coming from and pretty much agree, but we also have to look out for our readers!  Thanks for understanding.

People do travel, our festival, it is seen as a pilgrimage for musicians and music lovers alike, tracing one of the strands of the roots of American music back to it source.

I would argue anyone interested in the music featured here on this great site would be "insane" not to want to do that, the reason we blanket invite our friends here is because they have added us, we don't add friends here we don't know or work with, so the rest including you guys i guess, have added us and by definition must be interested in some measure, in what we do and where we are.  

We in the Highlands of Scotland are proud of our heritage and proud of our hospitality, and all at the Tartan Heart Fringe are proud of our event and hold that its the best 2 weeks of the year to visit us for a music lover.

If you can't make this gig, or even can't make this year, maybe you'll make it some other year, so we post our events here and invite our friends, and would argue we have the right to do that.  If the privilege of that right was withheld and the events set up here withdrawn, we'd invite our friends to join us else where and post our events our news and blogs there and encourage everyone to visit that site.

As it is we use this site extencivley in all our advertising internationally and are pulling in many many visitors, we have nearly 200 face book likes now, thats more than any site Iv  visited on here. I believe we are turning on way more people to this site than we ever will turn off.

We would like to think we are an international appeal destination event, so we use this site because its an international appeal site, synergistic with our musical tastes and I thought, synergistic with our community ethos.

 It was Dylan that said "you can be in my dream if I can be in yours" Someone else said " you can't please all the people all the time" .

My advice to you is decide which is more fitting. I look forward to your thoughts.

I agree that it feels like spam when blanket invitations are sent out knowing that visitors to this site don't reside in a particular geographic region.

It turns people off to the site and makes them not want to be a part of it when they receive this sort of messages and emails.  We receive complaints about this semi-regularly.

We have considered removing the Event section from the site due to abuse in this area.  Please keep that in mind and invite more carefully in the future.  Thanks.
