True North is back and this September we are rising up to mark the return of live music and standing up for what you believe in. We’ll be celebrating freedom of expression, diversity, community and equality with an inspirational and vibrant line up of musicians over one unforgettable weekend.  Whether you are discovering new artists or immersing yourself in the music of an icon, it’s time to turn the music up!

American singer songwriter and former Czars frontman John Grant will headline True North at the Music Hall on the Saturday evening. Described as ‘the misfit’s misfit’, Grant is too weird to be mainstream, too mainstream to be weird; too sad to be happy, too sharp not to crack a mordant joke about it. The dolorous ace in his song-writing pack is to gauge impressionistic childhood experiences against their amplified adult consequences. He will be supported by acclaimed Scottish performer Rachel Sermanni.
