Dean Owens & The Sinners

Friday 9th August 2024
Lodge Stage, Lodge Grounds


Award-winning troubadour Dean Owens and his band will transport you to a sepia stained downtown cantina with songs from his stunning Sinner’s Shrine album (recorded with musicians from Calexico).

A thrilling mix of genres – a unique blend of Scottish roots and rocky Americana, with added desert noir. Fresh from a sold out Netherlands tour and Cambridge Folk Festival appearance, The Sinners make a glorious, brass infused, driving sound – Craig Ross (electric guitar), Philip Cardwell (trumpet) and Adam McMillan (bass), and special guest drummer Andy Duncan, with Dean’s searingly soulful voice upfront.

They conjure the magical panoramic sweep of the US desert states, infused with grit and dust from Scotland’s post industrial heartland. Songs of love and lust, sinners and saints, the displaced, the wanderers and the border ghosts. A joyous mix of songs, banter and stories from Dean’s 10 album career and a life on the road. Earworm inducing melodies and great songs; the heart of a rock n roller combined with the spellbinding delivery of folk’s best storytellers, with humour and melancholy intertwined.
