3rd Oct: Special guests announced for the Hot Wire in Scotland tour

To add to what will already be a fantastic run of shows, we are delighted to announce our special guests for the Hot Wire in Scotland tour, October 2012. In Dundee we have Kit Clark, in Aberdeen, Oliver Richards and in Inverness we have Sienna Lights opening the show. In Dunfermline, Hamilton and Edinburgh, Little Fire will be performing before Hue and Cry take to the stage. All acts certainly provide a good reason to get along nice and early.
