Now approaching his 70th birthday, Colin Hay will forever be best known as ex-frontman of Australia’s Grammy-winning Men at Work, who sold more than 30 million records during the 1980s. Scottish by birth, he’s now based in Los Angeles, enjoying parallel careers as a highly-regarded solo artist – also renowned as a gifted live raconteur - and a regular member of Ringo Starr’s All–Starr Band, with whom he’s toured the world several times. Starr even makes a cameo appearance on Hay’s 15th LP, 2022’s Now And The Evermore, a winning blend of vintage pop charm, pub-rock muscle, and folk sincerity.

“A true class act, whose music is gleaned from both his heart and soul” (American Songwriter)

Building on a fast growing reputation, Hannah Rarity ranks as one of Scotland’s finest singers. Performing a carefully chosen mix of traditional, contemporary and self-penned material, she earns comparisons to Eva Cassidy and Cara Dillon, whilst standing  confidently in her own right. In June 2022, Rarity celebrated the release of her 2nd album To Have You Near. Produced by sought-after musician Innes White, and featuring an impressive array of some of Scotland’s top musicians, Hannah ushers in a more mature sound, staying true to her background in folk whilst being unafraid to experiment with genre and production.
