Having first blasted onto the scene in 2017, Project Smok play a blend of progressive Scottish folk music that few can match. With tunes built around former winner of BBC Young Traditional Musician of the Year Ali Levack’s distinctive whistle and piping, paired with Ewan Baird’s skilled bodhran playing and Pablo Lafuente’s nuanced guitar, electric guitar and production, the trio manage to effortlessly blend trad music with contemporary new-age pop influences.

And what a venue they will play at. One of the oldest pubs in Scotland, having been in continuous operation for four centuries, The Crook Inn was forced to close in 2006 but has since been reanimated following an energetic community campaign.

The Wee Crook bistro is the first part of the building to be re-developed making it possible to provide a licensed bar for audiences coming to see Project Smok and support act The Strawboys.

“I don’t think I can find words suitable for how good they are” Bruce MacGregor, BBC Travelling Folk
