Pennyblackmusic and the Wickerman Festival are proud to present an evening of great music in the heart of Glasgow on June 15, 2012.
Featuring four great acts, the evening will be Pennyblack’s first Scottish bands night, and will be a superb warm-up for this summer’s Wickerman Festival.
Headlining the evening is Dublin-based Duncan Maitland. Duncan’s first album, 'Lullabies for the 21st Century', has been wowing critics since its release in 2011, and he will be playing this year’s Wickerman Festival. In a career featuring spells with influential Irish power-pop outfit Pugwash and the critically acclaimed Picture House, Duncan has excelled in superbly-crafted, melodic pop-rock.
Also featured on the bill are Edinburgh rockers the Cathode Ray. Fresh from the release of their self-titled debut, the group have been delighting audiences in the capital with their edgy post-punk sound.
The line-up for the evening is completed by solo sets from Roy Moller and Nicola Black. Glasgow-based Roy is a long-term Belle and Sebastian collaborator, and has recently released his third LP, 'The Singing’s Getting Better'. Described by BBC6 Music’s Marc Riley as “Scotland’s best-kept secret,” Moller is a veteran of the Glasgow scene and his psychedelic-tinged sound has garnered great reviews and airplay. Nicola, armed with new material written on her recent US tour, has been described as “an amazing talent” by Cameron Murray of Alive Radio. Hailing from Galloway, Nicola has been delighting audiences from Alaska to New South Wales, and performed a triumphant set at last year’s Wickerman. Her unique blend of folk, rock and melodic pop, coupled with a massive voice, make her live performances truly memorable. Playing solo, or as a member of rock outfit Quirkus, Nicola has released two albums and will be again gracing the stage at this year’s festival.
