Show with string section!

May6 Gig TO CHECKWe’ve wanted to do this for as long as I can remember: a show with a lovely, big sweeping string section. Ho, ho! So here we go.

Ladies and Gentlemen, on Friday 6th May we will be proud to present to you a full band performance of songs from “Come to the Fabulon”, a sneaky peek or two at never-before-seen songs from the next album and maybe even one or two rare and exotic cover versions, all played with a special invitational select string section assembled by the formidable Mr Pete Harvey, featuring guest musicians from Glasgow, Edinburgh, Perth and The People’s Republic of Yorkshire. There may well be whistles and bells too. And special guest stars! So special, so secret, we don’t even know who they are yet.
Roll up folks, A New International for one night only in Glasgow’s beautiful St Luke’s venue. All welcome, tell your friends, hell, tell your enemies too.
We may only get one chance at this before the bailiffs break down the door. So let’s get on with the show.
