King Tut’s Summer Nights festival has being going for 5 years now and always seems to get the right balance of new talent on the bill. Last year I was lucky enough to catch a few of them and they were excellent bands with the right mix each night.
This Friday is a bit special for me though as I’ve covered Jamie Coleman before and been looking forward to doing a review on Gerry Cinnamon for while too. The other acts on that night are well worth checking out too (as are all the acts playing the KTSN festival this year).
I’m saving my words for the actual review which will be up on Voice of Scotland after Friday, but for now here is a preview on the gig.
Gerry Cinnamon is a lovely guy. He runs an open mic night on Wednesdays at The Priory on Sauchiehaull Street and has played Tut’s in the past. ( see John McKinlay’s live video here CLICK ). Sadly apart from seeing him at the open mic nights and on John’s videos I’ve yet to see him do a full set live. Can’t wait to see him play his amazing acoustic loopy goodness on Friday.
Jamie Coleman played at Tut’s earlier this year supporting John Lennon McCullagh. Since then he has Supported John Power from Cast / The La’s as well as The Alabama 3. I caught him a while back at Pivo Pivo ( my review and interview are here CLICK ). Jamie is a true troubadour, always playing and writing songs. He does a lot of work for great causes too. Not to be missed.
Paul John MacIver : Don’t know a lot about this guy yet. This is just a preview but I had a listen on his Soundcloud page and liked what I heard. You should too :
Aaron Fyfe : Likewise I’ve not seen him as yet, but again his Soundcloud page promises some great songs.
So there you have it, four great artists for £6.50 on a Friday night in one of the best venues in town. I’ll be doing pictures and a proper review after the event, so why not pop along and have a listen. See you there.
