More information on the artists:

Tawona Sithole & Ernest Nyamaropa; These brothers from Zimbabwe clearly have something special you don’t want to miss. Together they sing, and play songs on their Mbiras. Their instruments and their songs are passed down through generations and from their ancestor’s family name Ganyamatope, their music celebrates togetherness. They create a fun comfortable atmosphere where you can join in, and play in the spirit of their music.

Trees; create a rush of intense powerful discordant harmonies that then drastically changes direction with peaceful, subtle, calm sounds from where they left off from. Their music is defiantly unpredictable, and their creativeness challenges their performance as a whole. The energy they create disburses out into the audience to leave you with an experience that’s rile something quite special.

Tom Snowball; is well known in Glasgow for his performances in the past with Rags & Feathers and dead fly buchowski. He has a Great sense of originality that comes through his emotive uplifting songs.

Sultan Alishire; Sultan is from Saudi Arabia he has toured to Helsinki, Oslo, and has played many performances in the UK. He has collaborated with his friends and many well-known artists from East Africa and North Arabia. He’s extremely talented at his instrument “Sulte”. His collaboration with Yusuf Yare and Sada Ali Wasame makes him very important as performer but also as a voice for the African and Arabian people. This is a very special opportunity to see such a respected musician. Jack Thomson will join Sultan on the night combining the performance with percussion.

Adam Stearns; The sound he creates solo ad as a group comes from a rich base of 60s pop, folk, psychedelic influences, the music forms a silky cocoon of delicately weaved vocal melodies, punctuated by moments of dazzling harmonic beauty. His inventive yet restrained guitar work is perfectly balanced by quasi-virtuosic strings and the occasional advent of minimal percussion. An unassuming yet rich combination of the freshest musical ingredients makes Stearn’s sound utterly unforgettable . you will be crying out for more!
