Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Jonathan Ged­des

A Castlemilk singer­song­writer has net­ted a slot at T In The Park.

Gerry Cin­na­mon has been se­lected by judges to play the T Break stage at this year’s fes­ti­val, which takes place from July 10 to July 12.

It con­tin­ues a great year for the trou­ba­dour, who re­cently re­leased his new sin­gle, Kamp­fire Vam­pire.

He’s also sup­ported for­mer Cast and La’s mem­ber John Power on sev­eral Scot­tish shows, sold out King Tut‘s and made his name play­ing to huge crowds of proin­de­pen­dence sup­port­ers in the build-up to last year’s ref­er­en­dum.

And now he’s gear­ing up for Scot­land’s most popular fes­ti­val, as one of the 16 un­signed acts that were picked for the T Break stage.

Now in its 20th year, T Break aims to spot­light emerg­ing grass­roots acts from across the coun­try, and over a thou­sand acts en­tered the con­test, which is judged by 15 ex­perts from across the Scot­tish mu­sic scene.

Past bands to have graced the T Break stage in­clude Biffy Clyro, Twin At­lantic and the View, all of who have gone onto huge suc­cess since then.

Dave McGeachan, se­nior pro­moter from T Break part­ners DF Con­certs, was im­pressed by this year’s crop of win­ners.

He said: “Ev­ery year the other judges and I are blown away by the tal­ent we hear at the T Break judg­ing ses­sions. Some I am familiar with from the Scot­tish mu­sic scene such as Crash Club and Tijuana Bibles, this year. Some, like Spring Break, just come com­pletely out the blue and that’s the magic of T Break.

“Sup­port­ing Scot­land’s grass­roots mu­sic scene for 20 years is a mas­sive achieve­ment for T Break and a hugely im­por­tant com­mit­ment from Ten­nent’s. I’m very proud of T Break and all the great acts who have come through over the years, bring on the next 20 years.”
