They released their first single, Echoes and Patience in November 2018, a burst of high energy and a catchy chorus, it quickly caught on to Aberdeen’s music scene, followed by a second single release, Stand Alone, in early 2019.

The band embarked on their first Scottish tour in May 2019, playing Kilted Kangaroo (Stirling), NICE N SLEAZY (Glasgow), Sneaky Pete’s (Edinburgh) and finishing off on home soil at Cafe Drummonds (Aberdeen).

6th annual music festival

The 6th annual Newton Stewart & Minnigaff Traditional Music & Dance Festival will take place over 12th-14th July 2019 and, after another outstanding programme of events in 2018 which saw us hosting Scottish Highland Dancing competitions and, as ever, some of the biggest names in traditional music, it looks set to be another packed programme and is really living up to it's reputation as one of the best rural arts festivals in Dumfries & Galloway.
