Singer-songwriter to take a T Break
Troubadour Gerry gears up for big festival gig
A Castlemilk singersongwriter is gearing up for one of his biggest gigs yet.
Gerry Cinnamon will play T in the Park this Sunday ( July 12).
He’s set to gig at the T Break stage at this year’s festival, which will be held at Strathallan Castle in Perthshire.
The T Break stage is the festival’s home for emerging unsigned talent, with a panel of judges selecting 16 acts to play the bash from over a thousand applicants.
Past T Break performers have included Biffy Clyro, Paolo Nutini, Twin Atlantic and Snow Patrol, all of whom used the stage as a stepping stone to greater success.
Troubadour Gerry has enjoyed a brilliant 12 months, with his Hope Over Fear song being a huge hit with pro-independence supporters, leading him to perform at rallies in the run-up to the referendum last September.
Other highlights include selling out King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut in Glasgow, and releasing his Kampfire Vampire single earlier this year.
He also supported John Power of Cast and the La’s at some shows.
Dave McGeachan, Senior Promoter from T Break partners DF Concerts, praised the quality of T Break acts earlier this year, when the winners were announced.
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.”
