Malt and Barley Revue - on the road!

The revamped, sleeker and (mostly) beardless Malt and Barley Revue hits the road soon with gigs
in Hillswick (preview show, launch of the Glusstonberry Festival) Rutherglen, Ayr, Belladrum, Bo'ness and more to be confirmed. All details here.

The Malt and Barley Revue is an hour-long performance of songs, stories and poems by Tom Morton, all about Scotland and whisky. With detours to Ireland and Japan.

Funny, informative, laced with tragedy and tall tales, you may find yourself singing about steamboats or along with murderous highwayman, munching a very scratchy sweetmeat or wondering how on earth the Mother of Japanese Whisky came from Kirkintilloch.

You will certainly be sipping three of finest whiskies in the world, and wondering if it could possibly be true that one of them is English...

Hear some of the songs and dialogue here:

Special guests at some shows will include eminent and indeed bearded whisky connoisseurs such as Mr Jon Beach of Fiddlers in Drumnadrochit
