About Us

Strathaven Town Mill


The Town Mill exists to support the community of Strathaven and the surrounding area by offering rooms and halls to hire for events and exhibitions. Both the Granary and the Town Mill are run by members, who maintain it and also staff it during events.

Known throughout the county for years as a focal point for community gatherings and particularly musical clubs and groups, it has had many uses throughout its life, even housing the local tourist information office for a short time.

Strathaven Town Mill was built in the 17th century in the shadow of Strathaven Castle, another well known historic landmark.

AcousticCafeNight presents Claire Coupland (Canada)

Friday, 19th APRIL  8.00pm-10pm The Granary at the Town Mill
We are super excited to be hosting the hugely talented Claire Coupland from Toronto, Canada for the first part of her UK tour at the Granary on Friday 19th April, 2024.
Claire Coupland has been singing professionally since studying Performing Arts in 1998. An accomplished singer / songwriter and confident performer you can be assured that she will hit the right note.
There is a pureness to Claire's voice that can silence a room. A moving songwriter and compelling guitarist, Claire combines her smooth signature folk finger picking, jazz influenced progressions and soaring melodies. With a powerful yet tender vocal delivery comparable to Eva Cassidy and Susan Tedeschi, Claire has been relentlessly touring her new album, ‘New Light’, and drawing audiences into her intimate and heart warming performances. Her new album “New Light” delivers carefully crafted songs with a hope for the future. Claire Coupland brings a graceful contemporary feel to indie folk music, always with a touch of her “wicked sense of humour” (Rik Emmett, Triumph). Her music has been receiving rave reviews on CBC Radio Canada and BBC UK.
"Claire's silky voice has a rich and compassionate tone, a voice with unwavering power and strength" -The Permanent Rain Press
“Coupland delivers a highly professional, and astonishingly polished production with both a powerful and tender delivery” -Americana UK
