Kassidy marks the arrival of a major new talent in British music. Their debut LP, Hope St, is an exciting and vivid aural montage that is touched with beauty, optimism and despair. The band originally formed as an occasional acoustic collective, four close friends with diverse musical interests who were involved in various bands and projects in their native Glasgow.

The band – Barrie-James O'Neill, Hamish Fingland, Lewis Andrew and Chris Potter – while setting up on stage with four guitars and sharing vocal duties, can all turn their hand to other instruments. Their growth in the two years since forming the group is remarkable, and the record, along with their spirited and dynamic live show, is a testament to how exciting this group is.

There’s nothing pretentious or contrived about the band though; they love melody, love great songs – everything from the early R&B of Howlin’ Wolf, through the British Invasion, to the prototype funk and disco of Sly & the Family Stone and George Clinton, and the 21st century blues of The White Stripes and The Black Keys. 
Age 14 plus for this concert.
