SHARON KING and the Reckless Angels




A seasoned Scottish songwriter 'with a talent for spinning yarns...’ (LIST) Sharon King is a natural raconteur with an easy grace who continues to build a strong following and reputation. 

Her astute observations on Scottish life are carried in contemporary song writing and delivered wrapped in laughter. Her songs and banter are peppered with tales of her travels, and her albums have colours and textures are woven through the narratives by the mandolin, fiddle, and harmonies of The Reckless Angels and the more varied textures of  the bigger band The Nevernever Cowboys.

Working solo in 2018 Sharon can be found at Eden Festival on the 9th, at the MELODROME STAGE and supporting Rory Mcleod at the Voodoo Rooms in Edinburgh on 22nd of June.
