BBC Alba’s music series, ALT, has returned for a second series.
Having begun on Saturday, April 11, each episode will be available to watch again for 30 days afterwards, including the first which featured Sacred Paws and Idlewild as well as chat from James Grant .
Presented by Kim Carnie and Dol Eòin Mackinnon, the series of five programmes features a mix of headline bands that perform live sets in front of an audience at Glasgow University’s Queen Margaret Union.
Headliners also include Sunderland post-punk band The Futureheads, Glasgow indie rock band Attic Lights, Glasgow singer-songwriter Declan Welsh and The Decadent West (pictured) and Astrid.
Presenter Kim Carnie said: “It has been a treat working on ALT and discovering new bands and music. Talking to artists, some of whom work on a similar scale to me but in a completely different scene, has been fascinating.”
Other session recordings throughout the series feature the likes of Malcolm Middleton, Broken Records, Tidelines, Tommy Reilly, Scarlett Randle, Freakwave, and Zoe Bestel.
The shows also have exclusive ‘Legacy Interviews’ with some of Scotland’s top musicians from over the years, looking back at the singles and their music videos that brought their careers into the limelight.
Interviewees include Jon Fratelli, Tracyanne Campbell and Gavin Dunbar out of Camera Obscura, Amanda MacKinnon and Steven Clark from Bis, and Innes Strachan and Ruairidh Graham of Niteworks.
ALT is on BBC ALBA on Saturday evenings from 9pm to 10pm and starts on April 11, and is repeated on Sundays at 23:00 and Fridays at 21.55 (times subject to change, check the ALT website for exact broadcast times).
