The Clincarts live Country Band playing Country, Bluegrass & Country Rock Music
The band plays a range of classic Country Rock, Country & Western and new Country Songs and instrumentals as well as playing for Hoedown / Barn Dance and country style Line Dance events.
Highly experienced & professional musicians/singers performing, American and Country Songs from the 1950’s to present day. The Clincarts serve up the finest Country music with a set of foot-tapping, hand clapping songs for dancing and listening.
The Band was founded by Stuart Findlay, Cal McKinlay and Davy Clincart in Glasgow and over time they have become an eclectic collective of musicians, singers and composers.
The band has changed personnel and direction many times with new players joining and older players coming and going. Originally a gigging country / bluegrass band, The Clincarts have developed over the years to become essentially a recording vehicle for the compositions of its mainstay members.
An initial EP, Collection 1, was a sample of their live set and comprised of 4 cover versions of country / bluegrass numbers. Their first album Peine Forte et Dure was entirely self-penned and released in September 2012 and a second album is now complete with a release anticipated during 2016. This second album has country rock feel and is based on story written by Davy Clincart, “The Coffee Grinder & The Green Ray”. The bands live performances are a mixture of Bluegrass and (alt) Country, both originals and covers, with an emphasis on vocal harmonies.
