Fred MacAulay turned his back on the exciting (NOT) world of accountancy 25 years ago and hasn’t looked back since.
Playing to sell out audiences at venues at home and abroad, Fred brings his one man stand -up show to Dumfries for one night only.
His next tour won’t be till 2015, so this is a rare opportunity to see him at the top of his game. His Edinburgh Fringe show in 2013 brought him a number of four and five star reviews. Not to be missed.
The band’s most recognisable for the sounds it infused with Scottish folk and martial music styles, as well as for playing and engineering their guitar driven sound to evoke the inspirational spirit of bagpipes, fiddles and other traditional folk instruments.
Under his own name and as Mull Historical Society, Colin MacIntyre has made six albums to date, spanning styles from lush, fantastically catchy pop to stripped-down introspection, now whittled into his first best-of release, The Supermarket Never Sleeps. He launches it with a first-ever performance of his 2001 debut album Loss – inspired by his father’s death, and ranked by several critics among the year’s best – in its entirety, plus a few other favourites and the odd surprise guest.
As featured on Jools Holland in November, Concha Buika started out on the flamenco scene but branched out to work with two great Cuban pianists, first Chucho Valdés and now Ivan “Melón” Lewis. Her new album, La Noche Más Larga, recorded with Lewis in her new home, Miami, has rightly been praised for its subtle, Cuban-flamenco mix, brave range of songs and slinky, rhythmic vocals.
An outstanding solo performance based on a collection of funny, sad, touching and surprising stories about disabled people and their bodies. Created and performed by actor Robert Softley (co-creator of National Theatre of Scotland’s Girl X)
