A new unholy alliance... great playing and mighty craic!

He is also well known for his longstanding musical partnership with Denny Bartley. They toured worldwide and released numerous albums. They formed band extraordinaire “Last Night’s Fun”, and it was here Findlay and Chris met. In recent years Chris has also toured extensively with Bella Hardy.
Findlay Napier is a Scottish singer, guitarist and songwriter based in Glasgow.

When the Back of the Moon disbanded in late 2006 Findlay performed with Last Night’s Fun for a year playing up and down the length of the UK. At the same time he formed. Findlay Napier and The Bar room Mountaineers. Findlay is a fine songwriter……
“(5 Star Review) This is not background music. These songs look you square in the eye and give you a quick slap around the sensibilities if you dare stop paying attention.” FRUK
"Findlay and Chris are easy with an audience and are effortlessly funny. They're fluid tunesmiths, handy with a song and generous with the craic. A dynamic duo - and the complete festival package."
Phil Brown- BBC Radio Lancashire\The Big Whistle Festival
