The Sorries are Douglas Kay (vocals, guitar, bodhran) and Martin Philip (vocals, guitar, bodhran). The duo sing, play and banter their way through a show inspired by the music of The Corries; performing a selection of tunes from that well-loved songbook as well as a few satirical comedy songs which cast a sardonic eye on the political and public life of present-day Scotland.
Since forming in 2006 The Sorries have performed in a host of venues across Scotland, from the Warehouse Theatre in Lossimouth and Aberdeen's Lemon Tree to the Isle of Eigg Community Hall and Peebles' Eastgate Theatre. August 2009 saw the duo perform a series of sell-out shows at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
