The Mad Ferret Band are a Scottish duo, known on the folk scene for their hard hitting blend of traditional and contemporary Folk music. Their lively, energetic performances are packed with “blisteringly fast Mandolin solos”, tight harmonies, driving Cajon beats and earth-moving Guitar sounds. The influence from both Scottish and Irish folk music has helped shape their unique sound.
The Duo features Chris Woods on Mandolin, Guitar and Vocals and Sandy Stirton on Guitar, Cajon and Vocals.
Based in Perth, Scotland they are an extremely hard working band having played an average of 180 gigs a year across the U.K. and Europe. Since forming in 2012 they have been honing their music by playing the pub and small venue scene. They look to be even busier in 2015, with more festival performances and European tours on the way.

Superhouse are a four piece rock and indie covers band based in Edinburgh. Playing a high energy mix of rock, pop and indie covers, mainly from the 90's onwards. Think Kings of Leon, The Killers, Paolo Nutini, The Strokes etc and you'll get the picture. Alongside a few classics too, covering a few songs by The Beatles, Stevie Wonder and Johnny Cash. Always getting the place jumping up and down and singing along (thirsty work!).
