Scottish Musical Treats!

KT Tunstall rocking Norwich UEA
It was a case of Oh Flower of Scotland this week in Norwich with KT Tunstall headlining Norwich UEA on Monday night with support from Pictish Trail. While on Tuesday night it was the turn of The Phantom Band to headline at Norwich Arts Centre with support from Found.

The UEA LCR was packed on Monday night for the visit of songstress KT Tunstall. In fact Pictish Trail was so keen to be there that he walked from the bus station! With a combination of acoustic guitars and electronic wizardry he suitably entertained us as we waited for the star of the night.

KT Tunstall played a great selection from her new album Tiger Suit released last year, as well as some songs from her previous two studio albums. She's got such great enthusiasm on stage that lifted the whole venue. Other Side of the World was performed with such brilliance proving her star quality. She told us that she loved Norwich and we all loved her back.

It was more experimental on Tuesday night at Norwich Arts Centre. Edinburgh band Found opened the night and were very well received by everyone in the auditorium. Headliners The Phantom Band from Glasgow brought us mix of The Beta Band and Bonnie Prince Billy taking us to a dark cold place. Those who were brave enough to accept their invitation were well rewarded with many sonic delights. Tonight Edinburgh and Glasgow were united as we all celebrated Scottish Indie Music.
