Singing Kettle set to come to Brechin

Younger music fans in Brechin are set to have a day to remember in the build up to the second Brechin Music Fest this August.

Organisers of the event have revealed that on August 10, the Singing Kettle are to perform at the City Hall.

The performance, dubbed ‘The Singing Kettle Jungle Party’ will be the only Angus performance from the group.

Ticket prices and selling information are set to be announced at a later date, with organisers urging people to keep an eye on their Facebook page, www.facebook.com/BrechinMusicFest, for information so they don’t miss out.

The Brechin Music Fest is set to take place from August 29 to August 31, with over 20 bands already booked for the local pubs.

The event is already gaining support from the town, with a main sponsor already signed up.

Graeme Strachan, who is on the committee of the Brechin Music Fest, said: “We would like to thank the Northern Hotel for being our main sponsor for the second year in a row.”

It was also confirmed that the Clerk Street will close again this year to allow for an open air stage and carnivals to come back to the town.

Organisers also said that the Stables Bar would also be setting up an outdoor stage.

Perhaps the biggest coup of the Brechin Music Fest 2014, is the confirmed performance of top Oasis tribute band, Definitely Oasis, who are set to perform on August 30 at the Mechanics Hall, exactly 20 years since the release of Oasis’ “Definitely Maybe” album.

The 2014 Music Fest will also see the Mechanics Hall transformed in to Brechin’s legendary nightclub, Flicks.

A fund-raiser for the Music Fest is set for April 5, at the City Club. Tickets are priced at £5 each and are available from Hendrys Newsagent, Sweets and Treats, Rosie’s Bakehouse and Dennis’s.
