Jake Bugg tour dates
This Glasgow based band have been playing their mix of rock, soul and new country sounds for over ten years (they were formed in 1986 by bassist Johnny McElhone). With the release of 'White On Blonde' in 1997 they became major stars, propelled by huge pop hits such as 'Say What You Want' and 'Black Eyed Boy'. Many groups could be destroyed by such success, but Texas have continued writing and recording, sustained by their very particular love of music, and listeners can still enjoy the classic mix of Sharleen Spiteri's distinctive vocals with an experienced band who know what they're doing.

Twin Atlantic tour dates
Nina Nesbitt’s burning ambition has always been to be an acclaimed singer and thanks to a certain flame-haired star her dreams are starting to come true. The half Scottish /half Swedish teenager’s big break came earlier this year when she attended a low-key Ed Sheeran show in Edinburgh. Before the gig a friend told Ed that Nina had uploaded a cover of his colossal hit ‘The A Team’ onto YouTube so, while setting up, Ed asked Nina to perform one of her own songs for him. Suitably impressed, Ed contacted Nina and personally asked her to support him at his sold-out UK shows. Better still, Nina even got to come on during Ed’s set to perform a rousing duet of the Leonard Cohen classic ‘Hallelujah’ (later covered by Jeff Buckley and Alexandra Burke).

Eddi Reader was brought into the limelight with Fairground Attraction and their single 'Perfect' and parent album First of a Million Kisses which both topped the British charts. However, it has been her subsequent solo albums which signalled her increasing ability to assimilate different musical styles and make them all very much her own. From the traditional to the contemporary, Eddi brings to life all forms of song and what sets Eddi apart is the depth and quality of the emotional performance.
