The Southmartins are back at The Bungalow tonight. John Lyon of NNE said “After one of the best gigs of 2019, we’ve managed to convince Andy, Naomi and the band to head back to Paisley for 2021” The Southmartins give you the hits and bits of the Beautiful South and the Housemartins. It is the best sing-along night of the year belting out Happy Hour, Old Red Eyes is Back, Song For Whoever, Me and the Farmer, Don’t Marry Her, Perfect 10, Caravan of Love and many, many more.

Robyn Red

The band has toured the UK at sell out venues and was invited to play at Paul Heaton’s own venue in Salford for the launch of the “comeback” album with Jacqui Abbott. Lead singer Andy is about as close as you’ll come, vocally, to main man without it being himself and the night will leave you with a smile on your face and a song in your heart.

In support is and up and coming young talent Robyn Red. She is a singer-songwriter from Airdrie. She spoke to me last week and told me “I write country-pop-rock music and my influences are Amy Macdonald, Luke Combs, Carly Pearce and Lee Brice” Robyn started learning keyboard when she was five years old, then later when she was 13 she bought her first guitar and learned how to play it from you tube videos. In 2019 at only 14 she travelled to LA to represent UK in the World Championships of Performing Arts. She won gold for self-accompanied pop and silver for self-accompanied country. Although only 16 she was on the bill for Party in the Palace and Gig in the Goil. She is the one to watch. Tickets are on the door and opens at 7pm
