Bogha-frois (Pedro Cameron)
Bogha-frois (Rainbow), the LGBT + Folk Musicians Project is aimed at LGBT folk musicians in Scotland. The idea at the moment is to gather LGBT folk musicians from all over the country to write, collaborate on and perform songs in the folk tradition, which tell stories about life as a member of the LGBT community – with the ultimate aim being a record release and a series of shows, which help to open up a link between the Scottish folk tradition and 21st century issues and values.
Pedro Cameron is formerly the fiddle player in the Glasgow Americana act The Dirty Beggars, “Man of the Minch” is the alias of Pedro Cameron – marking a massive change of tack. Mixing elements of folk, pop, country and electropop – the music is undefinable. Drawing on lyrical themes of loss, friendship and life as a member of the LGBT community.
