Past and present band members of Texas, The Silencers, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and the Average White Band will be represented at this year’s 15th Darvel Music Festival. 23 Sept - Red Sky July (with Texas guitarist Ally McErlaine). Supported by Roddy Hart and The Lonesome Fire and Sean C Kennedy. 24 Sept - Hamish Stuart, Steve Ferrone and Molly Duncan of AWB fame. Steve Ferrone is undoubtedly one of the best drummers on the planet and he is taking time off the rigorous Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers touring schedule to play a handful of UK shows to promote the trio's new album under the name of 360. Support from James Brown is Annie. 2 Dec - Skerryvore, who have been favourites at Darvel for many years. Support from Socks in the Frying Pan and the Colin Kennedy Band. 3 Dec will feature ex- Silencers JJ Gilmour and Phil Kane. JJ has been lauded for years as one of the best singer song-writers in Scotland and his live performances never disappoint. Support from Dropkick, First Charge of the Light Brigade, and the Railwaymen. Doors open for each concert at 7pm.
