Heralded by their wonderfully wayward cover of Bowie’s ‘Boys Keep Swinging’, legendary Scottish pop mavericks The Associates’ debut album, The Affectionate Punch, a playfully audacious aural cocktail laced with punk, cabaret, opera, krautrock and glam, was released in 1980, announcing the unique sound and vision of founding Dundee duo Billy Mackenzie and Alan Rankine. Marking 40 years since this classic and still-influential record, Linlithgow-based chanteuse Audrey Redpath leads her Band “A.” line-up in likewise affectionate homage. 

Taylor & Leigh’s blend of Country and Blues is soulful and blisteringly hot. Siblings who have been playing music all their lives, Heather has the voice of an angel with the power of a hurricane while Alex's guitar playing simply takes your breath away. Hailing from Edinburgh and Manchester, they have been developing new music shaped by their recent trip to Nashville.
