Three Word Stories are Andy Bell and Leanne Cathcart. 

Andy and Leanne met through a wanted ad, discovered a shared understanding of traditional music and bonded over a tendency to pour their heart out. 

In the ‘Crimson and Gold’ collection of songs Andy and Leanne attempt to convey stories inspired by the small communities in and around their local area from the Moray Coast to the bay of St Cyrus.  They are both continually inspired by the people and places of the North East of Scotland – this in turn is reflected within their music and art. 

The Crimson and Gold collection was recorded live at Captain Toms studio by Paul Emerson, and the songs are available on all major streaming services. 

Three Word Stories feel strongly that music should be free but the project can not run on creativity alone. If you would like to offer your support to the band in any way through collaboration, feedback or good vibes – please make contact through the website.
