Winter Party boasts a mix of new music
Eight talented acts will perform during a mini-music festival at the Tolbooth this weekend.
‘Strange Behaviours: Winter Party’ will kick off at 7.30pm on Saturday with three stages spread throughout the historic building.
Some of the most celebrated new acts in Scottish music are set to play – with tickets £10 in advance or £12 on the door.
Pictish Trail will provide a fullband treat with Pictish favourites, new cuts, opportunities to boogie and the chance to wave some lighters. The band features Suse Bear (Tuff Love) and John B McKenna (Monogannon).
The Lochbacks are an a-capella super-group of Scottish indie acts, featuring Louie (Hector Bizerk), Be Charlotte and Ciaran and Marc of Pronto Mama.
Shogun, who has had three million views for his ‘Vulcan’ track on YouTube, is described as a passionate, unpredictable livewire of a talent and he will be performing an intimate show.
Peter Kelly’s alt-folk songwriting pseudonym ‘Beerjacket’ will be brought back to life for the event, while Scott William Urquhart will bring his deft solo acoustic fingerstyle guitar playing to the venue – fresh from airplay on Radio 6 Music.
Emme Woods, who is from the Stirling area, will bring a host of sultry, bitter-sweet alt ballads to the event and hugely talented songwriter Jason Riddell will showcase some of his material.
Indie quintet Fairweather and The Elements will play a strippedback and raw show consisting some touches of funk, soul and progressive psych.
And audiences are also excited to see Triptych – a band who like to use anthemic guitars, power-pop vocals and a ‘90s alt-rock edge.
Tickets available from culturestirling.org/tolbooth or on 01786 274000.
