Friday Aug 4th from 9am.
Powerful, emotive and critically acclaimed Traditional Irish band, Alan Kelly Gang reunite with Scotland's mesmerizing songstress, Eddi Reader (of Fairground Attraction fame) and Trashcan Sinatra's guitarist and songwriter, John Douglas, performing all new material from their latest album The Last Bell. Sheer musical synergy in its most natural form, once a collaboration, now a band, their performances have been praised for leaving audiences spellbound; Scotland's The Living Tradition magazine has described it as "an astonishing concert".
Fronted by Ireland's piano accordion maestro, the Alan Kelly Gang sit firmly at the cutting edge of the Traditional and World music scene. Their strong dynamics, driving rhythms and buoyant harmonies will draw even the most fainthearted listener into the passion that they put into the music they play. Taking influence from regions including Ireland, Brittany, Asturias and America and combining these with original compositions that stem from a deep traditional sensitivity, "the arrangements are world class, as are the musicians, and Ireland is always somewhere in the mix."
Irish Music Magazine.
From the traditional to the contemporary, Eddi Reader extinguishes the preordained boundaries of genre, bringing joyous life to all forms of song.

Perhaps best known as former front woman for Fairground Attraction who's #1 single, Perfect and parent album, First of a Million Kisses, both topped the British charts, Eddi has had a long and varied career and has effortlessly developed into one of popular music's most thrilling and affecting performers.Powerful, emotive and critically acclaimed Traditional Irish band, Alan Kelly Gang reunite with Scotland's mesmerizing songstress, Eddi Reader (of Fairground Attraction fame) and Trashcan Sinatra's guitarist and songwriter, John Douglas, performing all new material from their latest album The Last Bell.
