Rick Webster/Unkle Bob


The Kitchen Cynics

The Tunnels - Wednesday 4th May - 3 from 8pm - First act 8:30pm

Rick Webster


Rick Webster is the singer/songwriter from Glasgow's much praised Unkle Bob. Rick takes his influences from early 70s artists such as Nick Drake, Van Morrison, Tim Buckley, Cat Stevens, John Martyn, Carole King, and Neil Young.

Their sound has been descirbed as "the musical equivalent of the last warm bath you'd take before cutting your wrists" (Guardian) but Unkle Bob insist that it is all about the writing of good songs.

An early debut appeared in May 2003 which captured something of the bands early promise and helped raise their profile with airplay on BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio Scotland, Beat 106.

In February 2005 they released a fantastic EP The Hit Parade and played an 8-date tour of Scotland, including a date at the Lemon Tree.

Rick will be accompanied by Stuart Cartwright on guitar, banjo and mandolin for this chilled acoustic set of BOB songs.

In a world looking for the next fashion, the outstanding Unkle Bob might well turn out to be the norm The List 50 Best Scottish bands of all Time (New Talent)

"Unkle Bob really do look set for great things." Scotland on Sunday

"Rick Websters expressive voice and a repertoire of tuneful happy-sad songs recalls the likes of Nick Drake [...] compelling to listen to" The Scotsman (Jan 05)

"a singer who sounds like Nick Drake whispering secrets into Ray Davies' ear, plus he possesses an enviable stash of country-folk heartbreakers." Scotland on Sunday (Nov 04)


Delawair is the musical brain-child of Scott Lyon - great acoustic musings inspired by dirty-country, sad-songs, ex-girlfriends, cigerettes and static.
