Tigerfest 2010 has announced its lineup for May 2010 and includes Malcolm Middleton, King Creosote, The Unwinding Hours, Martin Stephenson and TV21.
The mini-festival, which runs for three weeks, takes in shows in Dunfermline, Edinburgh and Aberdeen, running in conjunction with its affiliates Baby Tiger, the Carnegie Hall, Interesting Music Promotions, and online/media partner is this music?

There’s also a clutch of co-promotions with partners such as Electric Circus and the Cabaret Voltaire, plus the Fence and 17seconds labels.

Highlights from the three weeks:

Malcolm Middleton – one-off show as the former Arab Strap man interrupts his hiatus of recording and writing. Joined by Spare Snare, Dundonian lo-fi legends.
King Creosote – currently embarking on a one-man tour of England, this exclusive Scottish leg also includes Fence labelmate Rozi Plain and Edinburgh’s upcoming star Withered Hand.
Also, part of ‘Celebrating Fife 2010′ – a triple bill of Ambulances, Vertis and Crayons, three of Scotland’s most promising acts, and all from the Kingdom.

Special one-off gig sees The Unwinding Hours – former Aereogramme members and perhaps already makers of Scottish album of the year – perform, with support from Katerwaul.

This year the focus is on the capital with a total of seven shows and 20 acts performing during the first two weeks of May. Top of the bill is hard to say – with indie legend Martin Stephenson, reformed 80s act TV21, and the best in new talent including There Will Be Fireworks, Jesus H. Foxx, X-Lion Tamer, The Gothenburg Address and Chris Bradley.
