- Who are The Argyll Cycle? Tell us a little bit about, yourself and your bandmates? What are your musical influences?
The Argyll Cycle is a band made up of friends from across Edinburgh, Glasgow, Skelmorlie, East Kilbride, and Stranraer. With musically diverse backgrounds, we have a shared love of country and bluegrass music and are influenced by the likes of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Hank Williams, Chris Stapleton, and Old Crow Medicine Show. The band is made up of lead vocalist Gregor Feeney, rhythm guitarist David Murdie, lead guitarist and violinist Jim Ward, mandolinist Ryan Macready, bassist Scott Runciman, and drummer Steven Ross. Although the members had played together in different variations, The Argyll Cycle was created for the Lexfactor and we are delighted that it has brought us together. We hope it will be the start of a wonderful musical journey.
- How are you feeling about the big night?
Two words. Can’t bloody wait.
- Why do you deserve to win the inaugural Lexfactor trophy?
We don’t. We are just delighted to have the opportunity to play our music for our friends, colleagues, and peers and hope that they enjoy it as much as we will.
- Do you have a rider and can you share the details?
2 litres of Jack Daniels and 2 litres of hand sanitizer (the COVID19 cocktail), diclofenac (we’re all getting old), 5 copies of the Law Society of Scotland Journal and 1 copy of the Beano (for Dave).
