With RM Hubbert, Kirsty Logan, Daniel Piper, Roseanne Reid and Nadine Aisha Jassat. Hosted by Jenny Lindsay & Cameron Foster. 7 – 10pm, The Bongo Club. £6
It’s the final Revue of the 2016/17 programme from Flint & Pitch, and we’re delighted to have teamed up with the wonderful 404 Ink to co-host their launch party for their new issue, The F Word. Having realised that four of the contributors to The F Word were to be on our stage that evening (Kirsty Logan, Jenny Lindsay, Cameron Foster and Nadine Aisha Jassat) it made sense to join forces with this unstoppable newcomer to the Scottish publishing scene. So come along to see a brilliant Revue, as well as pick up yer copy of The F Word!
The Revue features…
RM Hubbert is a guitarist and (sometimes) singer from Scotland. He writes music about love, death, friendship, mental illness and occasionally a dog called D Bone. It’s not as depressing as the previous sentence suggests.
Hubbert’s new album is called Telling The Trees. Available on 12″ heavyweight vinyl, CD and digital download, it’s out now and will be available to buy at the Revue!
A gracious and spellbinding thing – Q
Emotionally gripping – Mojo
Technically dazzling and deeply moving – Uncut
Kirsty Logan is the author of short story collection The Rental Heart and Other Fairytales (Salt, 2014), which was awarded the Polari First Book Prize and the Saboteur Award for Best Short Story Collection, and debut novel The Gracekeepers (Harvill Secker, 2015), which won a Lambda Literary Award. Her most recent book, A Portable Shelter (ASLS, 2015), is a collection of linked short stories inspired by Scottish folktales and was published in a limited edition with custom woodblock illustrations. Kirsty also works as a book reviewer, writing teacher and editor.
Daniel Piper is a comedian, writer and unlikely poetry slam champion. Originally from Yorkshire, he splits his time between Glasgow and London. Sharp and witty, but deeply uncool, he walks a tightrope of euphoria and embarrassment – and frequently falls off.
Daniel’s work blends comedy, theatre and poetry to hilarious and often humiliating effect. He has performed across London and the UK at venues from Southbank Centre to The Comedy Store
“Eminently entertaining. Decidedly one to watch.”

“A clear front runner among up and coming comics”
At 24, Edinburgh-based Roseanne Reid has achieved an incredible amount in a short space of time. Among her admirers is Country Legend Steve Earle, who repeatedly invites her to his annual songwriting retreats in the states. Roseanne’s melodic, honest and organic songwriting style allows her to paint pictures that capture the imagination immediately. This innate quality, paired with her distinct smoky vocals, gained her a spot on the Radio 2 Folk Award Nominations 2015 list, for which only four acts from around the country were selected. Appearances on the likes of the Simon Mayo show, along with her enchanting solo performances at venues across Scotland have gained Roseanne a loyal following that continues to grow.
“An outstanding songwriter”– Steve Earle
“Her singing and song craft displays a talent and maturity awesomely beyond her years.”- Sue Wilson, The Scotsman
