Refugee Week Scotland Opening Concert 2013

Following the success of our sell-out concert in 2012, Refugee Week Scotlandonce again opens the festival with what promises to be a wonderfully uplifting musical celebration of the rich and eclectic mix of people and cultures in Scotland today.

Glasgow-based ensemble Admiral Fallow”…a band headed for the top (Sunday Times), headline with a mix of songs from their superbly acclaimed album Boots Met My Face and recent collection of high-spirited acoustica Tree Bursts in Snow.

Award-winning folk songstress Karine Polwart, “one of the finest singer-songwriters in Britain” (The Guardian), performs her enduring melodies with lyrics that address humanity in all its many guises, accompanied by her trio of musicians.

The brilliant Malcolm Middleton, one time guitarist with Arab Strap, captain of the good ship Human Don’t Be Angry and maker of 5 top notch solo albums, opens the evening performing songs from his solo catalogue, so make sure you arrive early!

The evening will be compered by the critically acclaimed writer and performer Alan Bissett.

“The evening had a sense of was a joy to watch.” (****The Herald on Refugee Week Scotland Opening Concert 2012)
