Tolbooth Shindig – Wednesday 15th December
Hailing from Ayrshire, in just a few years Brownbear have taken themselves from a band tipped to do big things to selling out headline shows.
The release of their debut single ‘Dead or Alive’ in 2014 saw the band gain radio play on Radio 1, Radio 2, Radio Scotland and playlisted on Radio X. They were then invited to to support the Libertines at the Barrowlands reunion show before joining them at Alexandra Palace in London, Hyde Park BST & several European dates of the reunion tour. They also enjoyed a great festival run that year including T in the Park (BBC Introducing) , Blue Balls (Switzerland) & Belladrum (Main Stage) before heading into the studio to start work on their debut album ‘What is Home?’.
In the last few years the band has shared the stage with the likes of The Libertines, The View, Reverend & The Makers & Michael Kiwanuka.
Brownbear’s self released debut album ‘What is Home?’ was well received particularly amongst their growing fanbase leading to a headline tour that ended with a sold out show at the infamous King Tuts Wah Wah Hut in Glasgow.
