The Alan David Ross Show
5 performers in one band with 5 very different styles, each taking a turn at the mic. James touches on the 50's feel rockabilly/blues and country. Cameron with new wave, indie, pop and some original material, he is also a mean cajon player. Alan adds a taste of soul, blues,jazz and anthemic numbers to the set when he's not got his mouth full with the harmonica. Joe gives us a harder edge with rock and funk numbers whilst geeing it laldy on the bass. We are pleased to announce the newest addition, Alison who has helped to unlock a vast new potential for our band, the things she can do with that guitar with inspiration from Rodrigo y Gabriela to 90's Pop!
The Gorms play mostly traditional scottish folk music in their own distinctive way. An element of humour usually runs through their marathon performances, which run the gamut from soft and wistful to (more often) very rowdy indeed.
