George Machray at Edinburgh FC / EFC
George Machray is a fine and recognised singer and songwriter from the old fishing and mining village of Port Seton in East Lothian. He writes about what he knows about - the people and places found along the Firth of Forth coastline. The themes of his songs meander from the humorous to the serious, from the ridiculous to the romantic. While probably best known for his comical songs (Swinging In Dunbar and Hawkeye the Noo), songs like Charlottes Violin and Lazy Moon (Over Embra Toun) show George also has a serious side to his writing.
George is three-times winner at the Glenfarg Folk Club Song Contest and has been the audience vote winner twice in the annual Edinburgh Folk Club Song Competition. He has opened for artists such as Adam McNaughtan, Isla St Clair and Barluath.
