About Bob Leslie

The Prologue:



Hi! I'm a Celtic traditional songwriter. My songs deal with love, laughter, Scotland, and Scots abroad.

My new album The Barren Fig, is now out - it's my best work so far! I've called in favours, been lucky enough to garner a few patrons, and covered all other costs myself. Here are a few sample reviews:

.........................................................................................

The Barren Fig - "... killer lines ... leaves the listener smiling" (Aug 2019)
Fiona Heywood, The Living Tradition 


.........................................................................................

“The Barren Fig"... full of jewels" (March 2019) 
Liz Browning Fox 
Celtic! Old World to New Age
Radio Hatteras, Buxton, North Carolina

.........................................................................................

“The Barren Fig – "... a piece of art" (March 2019)
Ian D. Hall
Liverpool Sound and Vision
.........................................................................................

However, the next one's already half-written and I'm all spent out. If you become my patron, this will help me get future albums pressed and distributed, pay musicians, and finance future projects. Be a part of the art!

"I can think of no other songwriter who has mined this rich vein with such lyrical ease and with no mean ear for melody."
Alan Reid

Here's the Pitch!

Anything you can manage, from $2 upwards, is welcome.

The 12 biggest donors will each have a dedication on CD covers and on my website. I'll also post any corporate logo and link online to make it tax-deductible.

Donors will get CDs free (inc. shipping!)  if they donate $10 or more/month,
or if they donate for at least 4 months.

Once CDs are pressed and printed, I will list donors' names on the Shop page of my website.

I also promise reduced prices for any gigs I organise. The same deals will apply to future releases.
