Papa Shandy and the Drams
Based in Glasgow, Papa Shandy and the Drams were founded in 2012 and haven't looked back since. As Scottish folk musicians, there is a very good reason why this 6 piece Glasgow function band is popular all over the world.
The distinct, smoky voice of Kieran Sinclair heads up one of the fastest selling wedding and function bands in Scotland today. Their set list is vast, covering anything from Mumford and Sons to AC/DC. With their unique folk and bluegrass style, Papa Shandy and the Drams are undeniably the best pop and folk band available today.

Journey North are a five piece rock band from Tayside and Fife, Scotland. Drawing on their wide variety of musical backgrounds they combine the storytelling traditions of Scottish music with the dynamics of a rock band. Formed in late 2015 they released their debut album "The Calm before the Storm" in April 2016. Tracks from the album received airplay on a number of radio stations in the UK and overseas. A personnel change saw the introduction of bagpipes to their sound and they returned to the studio to record the acoustic based "Calm Sessions" album. This album reworked some tracks from their debut alongside two new songs. Playing live is what the band love to do most of all. They are rapidly gaining a reputation for their dynamic performances and their near telepathic interplay means every gig brings something new. The band are currently putting the finishing touches to their third album which is set for release in May 2017.
