Gigs and News

What's Happening in 2024 


Hi Folks, this year I'll be somewhat quieter due to retiring in May! I'll be still appearing at the Balavil Hotel in Newtonmore and entertaining in the care sector. I will be taking festival and one off gigs which I'll add in here rather than put up a diary. 


From April till October, I can be found at The Balavil Hotel in Newtonmore Most Saturdays. I also entertain on Tuesdays  there but please check with me or the hotel before travelling as they can be subject to change.



This Summer I will be recording my daughter Rebecca. It will be a selection of songs in Gaelic and Scots. 

Tha mi a’ coimhead air adhart ri sin



"Lockdown Cowboy", Recorded during lockdown, 
This album features a selection of Bob's favourite Country numbers. It will be available here as a FREE download!



August 2020 saw Bob filming with the BBC as part of the documentary show - "My Kind of Town". Hosted by Ian Hamilton, the Blairgowrie and Rattray special featured Bob performing local songs as well as his own.
Take a look at the show here.

Since moving back to Alyth I'm no longer involved in "It's BRAW" I loved my time with them, info can be found on the Discover Blairgowrie Website

Bob has mastered two CDs over the lockdown period, including The It's BRAW Christmas Special "Have a BRAW Christmas" and Sol Christie's "Remembering Elvis".
Bob is now working on his new album "Lockdown Cowboy".
Keep an eye out for the release date!


As part of a special It's BRAW project, from November to March, Bob has been out and about in Perthshire performing at care and sheltered housing complexes. 
10 meters from the front door, in rain, snow and wind, Bob has been entertaining those more vulnerable members of society. 

It's BRAW to Talk

Blairgowrie & Rattray's podcast show "It's BRAW to Talk" has been hosted by Bob & Steve Johnson since it started in March 2021. Bob and Steve chat to local guests as they share the up's and down's of their life and the last 12 months with their listeners. This new wellbeing podcast can be heard on the usual platforms or listen on Spotify here.
