Jinky returns for his annual festive show, this year at Airdrie Town Hall.
Internationally acclaimed Scottish singer-songwriter JJ Gilmour made his recording debut in 1989 with The Silencers, one of Scotland’s top bands who enjoyed huge success throughout Europe. A naturally gifted musician (in his youth, JJ came very close to a career in classical music as a tenor), he first joined the band as a backing vocalist, later seamlessly progressing to lead vocalist. Seven action-packed years of gigging and recording ensued during which The Silencers had gold albums, sold over half a million records for BMG/RCA, headlined major rock festivals and were regulars on hit TV shows across Europe. However, all good things must come to an end and after this successful period with the band, JJ decided he needed to take on new challenges and embarked upon a solo career.
With a number of critically acclaimed solo albums under his belt, Jinky has a wealth of material to choose from. Famous for songs with a melancholic edge along with his hilarious, irreverent in-between comedic banter. These gigs are a great night out!
