Tolbooth Presents ‘Constant Follower + Friends’ as part of Tolbooth at 20
Stirling’s Constant Follower will be performing for us as a part of special evening, that will also be curated by the band. The band will be supported by, and joined throughout the night by a selection of wonderful performers who make up the thriving and varied music scene in Stirling.
The event will be a celebration of Stirling’s musicians, and in particular Constant Follower who recently released their debut Album ‘Neither is, nor ever was’, and have been receiving support from US radio stations KEXP, WFMU as well as BBC 6 Music and BBC Scotland. Constant Follower have been selected to showcase at SXSW in Austin Texas this year, a music showcase renowned for breaking some of the world’s most successful acts.
McAll and the band are passionate about the creative scene in Stirling, most recently working several local moving image artists to create a series of music videos to accompany their album. The videos created will be available to view at on the night.
The event will support the Constant Follower who are fundraising for the SXSW showcase, and they will have some limited edition merch up for grabs on the night.

Support will come from CRPNTR + Scott William Urquhart + Annie Booth.
CRPNTR is an emcee and poet, born in Stirling and based in Glasgow.
Since his debut album release ‘You’re Going Where the Days Go’, CRPNTR has released further solo material, fronted bands Polaroid People and Crooq, and performed across the UK and Europe.
A fan of words and wordplay, expect dense metaphor and surrealist imagery from CRPNTR songs, and much energy from his performances.
Scott’s free flowing and spellbinding instrumental guitar music has it’s roots in the fingerstyle tradition of Bert Jansch and Nick Drake, imbued with a wilderness and warmth that makes it his own. With regular airplay from BBC6 Music and support from Lauren Laverne, Stuart Marconie and Gideon Coe, Scott has built a reputation as a unique talent at one with his craft.
Annie Booth is an Edinburgh-based artist with a gift for mood-painting and storytelling. A seasoned modern folk singer, performer and songwriter – with a flair for the nostalgic and the melancholy – she wields a unique voice in Scotland, bridging genre and influence with ease.
“There is an engaging and unvarnished quality to Annie Booth’s music, delivered straight from her mouth to your room” – The Scotsman ** “A storyteller at heart…’Lazybody’ is a beautiful collection of songs” – The Skinny
