Perth Festival is delighted to announce that The Proclaimers will headline the Festival on Saturday 23rd May in Perth Concert Hall. After completing a 2-year World Tour late in 2013, Craig and Charlie took 2014 off to focus entirely on writing a new album. They headed to Rockfield Studios in December with their band and producer Dave Eringa (Manic Street Preachers, Wilko Johnson & Roger Daltrey, Idlewild, The Who) and recorded their 10th studio album 'Let's Hear It For The Dogs' to be released on Cooking Vinyl in April this year.

King Creosote and his eight piece band will also play the Festival on the 22nd May featuring pieces from the sound track “Scotland With Love” and with numbers from his back catalogue. World class saxophonist Courtney Pine has also joined the line-up as has Jools Holland and his Rhythm and Blues Orchestra. Other new developments include a Headphone Disco for all ages in a marquee sited beside Perth Concert Hall, the Festival Ceilidh with the Jim Mackay Dance Band and a dreamy Simply Gershwin show with orchestra, soloists and dancers.Click here for Information on all 2015 Shows
