Virginian livewires The Hot Seats have wowed the crowds at big events such as Celtic Connections, Shetland Folk Festival, Didmarton Bluegrass Festival, Maverick Festival, Speyfest and Edinburgh Festival Fringe, where they picked up the biggest accolade possible - a Herald Angel - for their outstanding contribution to the event.

 

Of course, they are now recognised as one of the most popular and entertaining touring American roots bands on the UK circuit too, pulling capacity crowds to many venues due to their solid reputation as an act that's not to be missed. The band makes a by-popular demand return this summer for a string of Scottish dates that includea main stage appearance at HebCeltFest. There’s a brand new album out and it's gettingrave reviews.

The Stu Brown Sextet: Twisted Toons - The Music of Raymond Scott
Wed 31 July  |  7.30pm  |  £12/10
 

‘The man who made the cartoons swing’

 

The Stu Brown Sextet was formedin 2008 by drummer, Stu Brown, to celebrate 100 years since the birth of the little known band leader, composer and inventor, Raymond Scott, whose wacky, hyper-animated, eyeball-popping ‘cartoon jazz’ is most widely recognisable forits use in the Looney Tunes cartoons from the 1940’s onwards and, more recently,in Ren and Stimpy, and The Simpsons. His manic, offbeat compositions, suchas “Dinner Music for a Pack of Hungry Cannibals” and Square Dance For Eight Egyptian Mummies” are performed with zest and spontaneity by the drummer’s brilliantly orchestrated sextet.
