  1. An evening with Nickel Creek Wednesday 15th February The Lemon Tree 13.50 (9 concessions & Regulars) Doors Open: 8pm | onstage: 8.30pm Now on their third album, neo-bluegrass trio Nickel Creek are still frighteningly young, talented and unafraid to take their music into new territory. While their grounding is in bluegrass, they ignore boundaries between other music styles to come up with a completely unique sound that really comes into its own during their stunning live performances. "Nickel Creek blends bluegrass, classical music and pop with irresistible aplomb, and sings like angels to boot." Washington Post "Arguably the finest acoustic string ensemble operating today. Nickel Creek is the future of American acoustic music, and the future never looked rosier." - Chicago Tribune "they don't think twice about making musical bedfellows of Bob Dylan and Bach in the middle of a bluegrass tune." Los Angeles Times "With influences as diverse as Elliot Smith, Radiohead, Murray Peharia, and Bach, the Creek are certainly willing to experiment." Mojo Details on Lemon Tree Website

  13. Saturday 4th February The Lemon Tree Tickets 5 (3.25 concessions & Regulars) Doors Open: 9pm | onstage: 9.30pm After two support slots at sold out Lemon Tree gigs, The Front now step up for their own debut headline gig. The band formed in the summer of 2002 when singer David Conachan joined forces with bassist Niall Mckay and drummer Andrew West. With the addition of Paul Cushnie on lead guitar, they worked hard to develop their own sound and style, and when keyboard player Ross McDonald was recruited in the summer of 2004 that The Front finally started to fulfil their massive potential. http://www.lemontree.org/Music/event.cfm?eventid=2759&tempmonth=2
  14. Friday 3rd March The Lemon Tree Tickets 5 (3.25 concessions & Regulars) Doors Open: 9pm | onstage: 9.30pm Having mysteriously disappeared from the public eye for over a year, unknown forces have lured 10 Easy Wishes back from their secret hideaway and primed them to explode onstage once more. Barely out of their teens but with over 100 shows under their belts, 10 Easy Wishes hit The Lemon Tree for a special comeback show in their home town. 10 Easy Wishes produce a fresh, futuristic sound which simultaneously appeals to the pop fan and noise enthusiast alike. Gut-wrenching indie punk 'n' roll tendencies lay a solid foundation for cascading surf sounds and mangled blues chords and a crazed dancefloor is inevitable. http://www.lemontree.org/Music/event.cfm?eventid=2758&tempmonth=3

After an exciting year, winning BBC Radio Scotland's Critical Choice on the Tom Morton show and playing busy headline gigs in Aberdeen and further afield, The Boy Lacks Patience has been attracting both public and industry attention. Described as "pure originality" (Colin Somerville, Scotland on Sunday) the music is a heady mix, somewhere between Ben Folds, Kate Bush and Beethoven. Don't miss this night of piano driven songwriting, with local support. Lemon Tree website "iron fist in a velvet glove" - Radio Scotland
