The line-up

Young Fathers: This hip-hop trio from Edinburgh, via Liberia and Nigeria, will bring “leftfield pop that partly recalls the pioneering spirit of Massive Attack” (**** Guardian Dead album review).

Balkanarama: To get the party started - and to finish it off – Balkanarama will bring their A-game with “a storming blend of live gypsy, mesmerising klezmer and atmospheric Balkan folk” (The Guardian).

Skipinnish: This award-winning Scottish Gaelic and Ceildh music band Skipinnish promise a stirring set that will be sure to get you on your feet.

Suzi Simpson, Arts and Cultural Development Officer at Scottish Refugee Council said: “We’re really excited to present our Refugee Week Scotland 2014 Concert line up – we’re still collaborating with Scottish talents but this year offering a shift in pace and tone.

“With rising stars on the UK hip-hop scene Young Fathers, fiery gypsy punk from crowd pleasers Balkanarama and a special Gaelic twist with Céilidh music band Skipinnish the event celebrates the dynamism of Scottish culture and warmth of its welcome.”


The tickets for this event will be £15 standing and £13 concession and balcony, however a limited number of early bird tickets are now available at £12 standing and £10 concession and balcony.
