Push the Boat Out - Galgael Fundraiser Gig
Bombskare, Scotland’s 9-man ska juggernaut has been tearing up stages the length and breadth of the British Isles. Their trademark ska rhythms and lush harmonies, together with choppy guitar sounds and an explosive horn section truly blows the audience away. So it’s little wonder, The Scotsman, crowned them "Scotland's premier ska band".
BBC introduced singer - songwriter Lorraine McCauley will release her debut album this autumn with her band The Borderlands. They recently supported Karine Powart, who has tipped them as the breakthrough act of 2012. Having visited the Galgael as a potential music video location, Lorraine and the Borderlands were blown away by the tremendous work carried out at the project. So it is with the support of the Galgael and Bombskare that the band will host this exciting fundraiser gig.
Together both bands will raise the roof and funds for the Galgeal, so don't miss this unique one off event. All funds raised will go to support the wonderful work of The Galgael to find out more about their work go to http://www.galgael.org/
