The Coaltown Daisies
Best Folk Performance and CalMac Culture winners The Coaltown Daisies are a duo of singer-songwriters who write and perform folk, soul and americana music. Detailing their music with dual harmonies, thought-provoking lyrics and dynamic arrangements, they are achieving great success; they have become renowned for their audience interaction, which is as much a part of their shows as their musical performance. Described as ‘spell-binding’, ‘spine-tingling’ and ‘breath-taking’, The Coaltown Daisies have performed at an abundance of venues and festivals on their journey so far and have worked with a number of the UK’s most established artists.

They call all the dances and demonstrate them, so first-timers are always well looked after!

The Pictish Trail
Corn Exchange, Cupar 15th June 2019
Throughout his career Pictish Trail – aka Johnny Lynch – has resolutely furrowed his own path, steadily creating a unique catalogue of recordings and performances through his own labels (Lost Map / Fence Records) while eschewing the blueprint of the predictable singer-songwriter in favour of something untidily intriguing. Born out of a compulsion to make infectious, melody driven music from a treasure trove of secret sounds, Pictish Trail’s spectral songs are filtered through a sun-warped pop lens, where heart-pumping guitar shriek-outs collide with sampled gurgles and fractured lyrics figure-skate over sine-waves of glacial synth.
