Colin Clyne Wrapping Up Tour with Homecoming Gig Saturday May 14

Scottish singer-songwriter Colin Clyne will wrap up his West Coast tour with a homecoming show on Saturday, May 14, at Hensley’s Flying Elephant.

Over the course of his most recent road trek, "I performed at the Sacramento Highland Games and Celtic Festival. I also performed up in Seattle, Portland, Vancouver, Lake Oswego, Ocean Shores, Arcata, and Woodland California. I happily added to my fridge magnet collection!"

The May 14 show kicks off at 8pm with Irish fiddler Patric Petrie (Skelpin) and Irish singer/songwriter David Lally.

"Patric will then be joining myself and the rest of my band to play a set. I will be showcasing new songs for the new album, performing songs from my album Doricana, and quite possibly a couple of wee covers until 11pm."

Hensley’s Flying Elephant (co-founded by Matt Hensley of Irish-American rockers Flogging Molly) won't be charging a cover that night. "Which," notes Clyne, "means you have more money to spend on beer, food, or even a CD! Also, there will be discounted advance tickets available for our Celtic Crossroads event which is being held at Brooks Sunshine Theatre in Oceanside on the 25th of June." More on that soon...

Originally from Stonehaven, Scotland, and raised in the U.K., Clyne frequently takes jobs aboard fishing boats traveling to Europe, West Africa, and even the Arctic Circle. As of 2011, Clyne divides his time between his homeland and Southern California, with a sizable following in each.

Clyne’s introduction to music was via his mothers record collection, a mix of international acts such as Dylan and Neil Young, with homegrown heroes such as the Corries or the Fureys. Though he began to make music by the age of 16, directly inspired by Oasis, an accident to his hand took away his ability to play until he was in his mid twenties. This only increased his resolve to become a touring artist, kicking into overdrive from the moment a guitar was back in his hand.

“My songs tell honest folk-like stories with hard, raw, bluesy rock guitar. The music is tinged with humor, sadness, and working-class bravado, all rolled into one little Britpop package. Imagine the love child of Mike Myers’ Fat Bastard and Neil Young.”
