Lemon Tree Late & Festival Pass show
Aberdeen Performing Arts presents True North – Aberdeen’s festival of music and song – will take place in venues around the city from Thursday 22 - Sunday 25 September. The festival is inspired by the fantastic heritage of singer-songwriters in the North-east, and features a line-up of iconic musicians and emerging talent.
C Duncan’s charming lo-fi folk sound is inspired by the Glasgow-born artist’s fascination with the composition and performance of classical music. The Mercury prize-nominee studied music composition at what is now the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. C Duncan is also an accomplished painter and provides cover art for his own records. His debut album Architect (Fat Cat) is on the shortlist for the Scottish Album of the Year Award.
With Kid Canaveral
Post-pop band Kid Canaveral is made up of David MacGregor, Kate Lazda, Rose McConnachie, Scott McMaster and Michael Craig. They describe themselves as “five strange people who make beautiful music that is, more often than not, blissfully loud”. Nominated for Scottish Album of the Year in 2014 with its second record, the band is now preparing to release its third album, Faulty Inner Dialogue, which features the irresistibly catchy First We Take Dumbarton.
HQFU is the electro alias of musican, artist and producer Sarah J Stanley, who is based in Glasgow and will be playing the BBC Introducing stage at T in the Park this year. The self-titled mini album by HQFU features tracks including Dust & Dirt and Dreamer.
