Over the last three decades Glasgow based singer/songwriter JOHN HINSHELWOOD's finely crafted, country-tinged songs have firmly established his reputation as a writer and performer of distinction.
John has worked with, among others, ex Byrd Gene Parsons, and legendary Scottish songwriter Rab Noakes, and shared a stage with many distinguished artistes including Roger McGuinn, Tim O’Brien, Darrell Scott, and Kate Campbell. His live appearances have included Celtic Connections, Highland Festival, Wembley Country Festival, Perth’s Southern Fried Festival, and Summertyne Festival in Newcastle, in addition to Arts Centres, Folk Clubs and many other venues across the folk/country/Americana music scene.
John's two CDs “Holler til Dawn”(2002), and “Shattered Pleasures”(2009) , the latter a collaboration with Canadian singer Sandra Gellatly, both received widespread critical acclaim, and a new recording “Lowering The Tone” was released in April 2014. A track from the CD “What’s Left is what’s right” peaked at number 4 in the Hotdisc British/Irish Independent Country music chart.
The current line-up of The John Hinshelwood Band is -:
Tim Black - acoustic and electric guitars, mandolin, vocals
John Hinshelwood - vocals, acoustic guitar
Ed McGlone - bass, fretless bass, Chapman stick, vocals
John also fronts six piece country/rock band The City Sinners with American singer/songwriter Kathy Stewart, and has organised and curated several Gram Parsons tribute events.
