Fiddler’s Bar

Back in October whenever my drouth was needing slaking after a long day out in the hills of Arran painting I would repair, with my darling wife, to Fiddlers Bar and Bistro in Brodick for a pint of Bellhaven Black. The food is good too but for me the real attraction is the variety of live music they play every night.

With many fantastic bands and musicians the real star is Donal, part owner of
the bar(?), and nightly fiddle accompaniment (hence the name: Fiddler’s Bar):

Sam the Skull                        “Donal Playing ‘Sam the Skull'”, pencil in sketchbook, A6.

Waiting for the Federals                             “Waiting for the Federals”, pencil in sketchbook, A6.

I love his fantastic ability to improvise on any tune.
