The Endless Note

Minstrels, Poets & Vagabonds – Jamie Barnes

Jamie Barnes is known to many as the “Godfather” of the Glasgow pub rock scene,  together with his band Cochise they exploded out the east end of the city in the early 70’s and still has a regular slot at Rockers nearly 40 years later.

Music wise his repertoire has always mixed rock, soul and blues both originals and covers.

His reputation grew throughout Scotland and his gigs were regularly dropped in on by a series of guests none more so than Frankie Miller.

Jamie and Frankie

Fame though avoided Jamie, partly due to fate and perhaps partly due to a desire to do what he wanted, where he wanted and when he wanted.
