We are pleased to introduce our musical guest for the Friday evening. We are celebrating opening of 6 new room at the hotel. March 18th 6-9PM. More information about event and artist profiles.
“Artist Hope London (aka M Contraband Esq) started writing and performing songs after too many whisky-fuelled jam sessions in pubs in rural Scotland where she moved 11 years ago, and recently recorded her first album ‘Aim Low’ – it’s all been downhill from there. Hope’s art, writing and music have all fused in Room 1D of the Carlton Arms.You can catch her playing at the Eden Festival in Scotland in June, at Rabbie’s Tavern (naturally).” Website www.mcontrabandesq.com
