“… they specialise in the kind of honky-tonk music you would normally hear in the very best of Nashville or Texan bars … “
Comments like this coming from a club promoter make us realise we’re doing something right! Along with endorsements from Texans and a Country music fan from Alabama telling us our music made her feel homesick for the Honky Tonks back home!
Border Radio are based in Scotland and we have a real passion for traditional Country music. We draw inspiration from pioneers such as: Hank Williams and Ray Price, giants of ’70s Country music scene Doug Sahm and the Flying Burrito Brothers, along with more modern-day artists Marty Stuart, BR549 and the Derailers. Our music features original numbers and the very best in traditional Country covers.
The band’s line-up includes Steve Smith on lead vocals and rhythm guitar, Gavin Brightwell on bass and backing vocals and Jim Blair on lead guitar, supplemented by David Cameron on drums and Fiona Newton on fiddle.
Catch ya at one of our gigs soon!
