Hi Folks – reporting back on the Moniaive Festival and live in the studio tonight (Tuesday) Stramash Scotland for an update on what the lads are up to and news of their release on the 21 May of their Second CD “The Lion Rises “
Formed in 2010 current members are: Andrew Lowrie (drums and backing vocals); Andrew Jackson aka AJ! (lead vocals and rhythm guitar); Will Maxwell (bass); Michael Gilfeather (lead guitar) and Iain Alexander Marr (Bagpipe and whistle).
In early 2011, the band locked themselves away in the rehearsal studio and after a fair shedding of blood, sweat and tears, Stramash emerged triumphant with the sound that they had created ready for the road ahead…TARTAN FOLK ‘N’ ROCK! Their first CD The Uprising ! receiving the SNMA Award for Roots recording of the year 2012. They were quickly signed by Frusion Agency .
After a great 2012, highlights including a two month European tour, performing in the Royal Concert Hall Glasgow and Stramash again locked themselves in the studio recording album two, a much faster paced, energetic album. “The Lion Rises”.
If you miss the programme you can listen Wednesdays 2-4 am and 13:00 to 15:00 or on Catch Up – available for the next 30 days after broadcast.
