THE SECOND HAND MARCHING BAND

The Second Hand Marching Band are a group of 16+ members from Glasgow and around about. They play untraditional folk with a mixture of dance, pop and post-rock influences on a variety of instruments including brass, woodwind, accordion, guitar and drum.

They started performing in December 2007 and have been up and down Scotland playing venues, tea houses, parks, festivals and fields and now make a very welcome return to Aberdeen.

RM HUBBERT

Following the demise of the highly respected El Hombre Trajeado, RM Hubbert stopped playing live and started studying different musical forms: more specifically flamenco, samba and taiko. The outcome was a series of guitar compositions which are based around flamenco rhythms and structures, but which are simultaneously melodically traceable to both his previous work and more contemporary styles. Recently picked up by our friends at the wonderful Chemikal Underground records.

THE LAST BATTLE

Formed in the summer of 2009, The Last Battle, named after the novel by C.S. Lewis, play low key folk pop. Featuring one pair of sisters, two couples and three school friends, they sing songs of love, death and longing. So far theyve shared stages with the likes of The Unwinding Hours, First Aid Kit, Peggy Sue, Dawn Landes, Meursault and Eagleowl. Vic Galloway made their debut single Ruins one of his future anthems on his BBC Radio Scotland show in June 2010. Debut album Heart Of The Land is now available through Scottish indie label 17 Seconds Records.

Graeme - "I first encountered the drawings of Jenny Soep while searching the internet for pictures of The Second Hand Marching Band to use in a poster to advertise a forthcoming gig in Aberdeen. I was immediatley taken with the pictures I found, not only of The Second Hand Marching Band but many other of my Scottish Music favourites. Her drawings capture an intimacy of the artists she draws in a unique and colourful way."
