The Herald on Sunday - - THE WEEK -

THE fes­ti­val’s pop­u­lar Roam­ing Roots col­lab­o­ra­tive re­vue will turn its at­ten­tion to The Bea­tles’ al­bum, Abbey Road, in 2019. The show, cu­rated and hosted by Roddy Hart and The Lone­some Fire, will see the Sun King Orches­tra play­ing along­side spe­cial guests, in­clud­ing KT Tun­stall, The Staves and You Tell Me, a duo con­sist­ing of Ad­mi­ral Fal­low’s Sarah Hayes and

Field Mu­sic’s Peter Brewis. Tun­stall sent an up­beat tweet on Fri­day: “Oh, good peo­ple of Glas­gow!! De­lighted to share that I will be ap­pear­ing at the @ccfest Fes­ti­val next Jan­uary along with a host of amaz­ing mu­si­cians.”

Hart him­self tweeted that fur­ther “very spe­cial guests” would be an­nounced.

The re­vue is one of the an­nual high­lights of the fes­ti­val. Last year’s saw a transat­lantic cast hon­our­ing the late Tom Petty.
