Join award-winning Scottish singer-songwriter Dean Owens for an evening of songs and stories, from his extensive 10 album back catalogue. A spellbinding live performer, armed with a searingly soulful voice, skilfully crafted songs, and earworm inducing melodies. 

Dean's songs are a blend of Americana and Scottish roots. The unfettered enthusiasm of a rock 'n' roller combined with the sympathetic delivery of folk's best storytellers.

His travels have taken him from Scotland's post-industrial heartlands to the panoramic vistas of the US deserts, where he recorded his latest album Sinner's Shrine with Calexico, adding nuances of Latin notes to his musical palette.
