David Mowle on piano (followed by AGM). David is a retired consultant neurosurgeon and an accomplished pianist. He will be playing works by Scarlatti, Schumann and Beethoven. His 45 minute concert will be followed by CML!F’s AGM – you can stay for the meeting, but it is perfectly acceptable to leave after the music.
We are excited to announce that songwriter Ross Wilson, aka Blue Rose Code, will be playing here in August! He writes straight from, and to, the heart and his songs address universal themes of love, loss, travel, home, accepting the past and embracing the future in a deeply personal way. They are variously painted with the vibrant colours of folk, Americana, jazz, country, soul, pop and, increasingly, Celtic traditions; an eclecticism that has seen him compared to John Martyn, Van Morrison and Tom Waits, amongst others.
Tickets are available from Blue Rose Code – Scotland on Tour

Hailing from Ayrshire, in just a few years Brownbear have taken themselves from a band tipped to do big things to selling out headline shows, sharing the stage with the likes of The Libertines, The View, Reverend & The Makers and Michael Kiwanuka.
With their debut album ‘What is Home?’ and a string of sold out headline shows already under their belt, Brownbear are getting ready to hit the live circuit again with brand new material. The first new offering since 2018, ‘Retro’, dropped in March 2020. The band’s second album will be released late 2022.
“With tight melodies, Brownbear are clean and polished guitar-pop that proves to be more than appetising live” – NME

We’re having a film evening to show ‘Thank You for the Rain’. This award-winning feature length documentary tells the story of Kisilu, a small holder farmer in Kenya who has used his camera to capture the life of his family, and the human cost of climate change. When a violent storm throws him and a Norwegian filmmaker together, we see him transform from a father to a community leader and activist on the global stage.
We look forward to seeing you then to watch this moving and thought provoking film.
We collect for Falkirk Foodbank on the first Sunday of every month. Items needed most for the Foodbank this month are:
- tins of beans, soup and spaghetti
- tins of vegetables, meat and fish
