Scotland’s North-East continues to build on its rich musical heritage, as highlighted here by a diverse array of artists from the region, performing both re-imagined traditional songs and original material, with Old Blind Dogs as house band.

Other featured acts range from Rick Redbeard, solo alter ego of Phantom Band frontman Rick Anthony, to teenage bothy balladeer Iona Fyfe; folkloric singer-songwriter Jenny Sturgeon to indie-folk starlet Best Girl Athlete. The Dogs’ Jonny Hardie does double duty as half of Clype with Salsa Celtica’s Simon Gall (also tonight’s musical director), while hip-hop artist Jackill adds a Granite City groove to old-school sounds.
