We do like a tour that take in some of the further-flung musical outposts, so this sounds ideal.
Taking place pretty much throughout July, Anywhere but the cities is a series of 16 shows in 21 days. Found and Neu! Reekie are at the centre of the Dewars-sponsored tour, which will see a variety of guests roll up, whisky in hand, in various small-to-medium towns across Scotland. King Creosote, Eugene Kelly, Sexual Objects, Alan Bissett, Liz Lochhead, Aidan Moffat and Withered Hand are some of the acts who will take in Stonehaven, Durness (possibly in a cave), Helensburgh, Hawick, Orkney, Thurso, and even places that we’re not sure where they are like Craigellachie, as well as a final night in the more familiar Linlithgow Palace.
NB not all acts will be at all venues! Full location and band list at the link above.
