Anton And The Colts ——Listen Again Archive Site 
“Their ace combination of rock swagger, blues groove, and the rough and tumble of Americana is one few Scottish bands can match.” The Music Brewery .  Since their inception in June ’14 and the release of their debut EP, ‘6:45 & 450 Down’ at the beginning of 2015, the band has played numerous venues and festivals throughout Scotland including Glasgow’s ABC, King Tuts; the Belladrum festival in Inverness and the enchanting Eden festival. The miles travelled and the countless hours of stage time has helped shape a sound that takes many twists and turns during their live set. It’s a journey of sound that they hope to capture and recreate with their debut album due for release this year

Gordon Kennedy  –  Listen Again Archive Site 
Gordon Kennedy is a poet, composer & singer from Glasgow, Scotland. He comes from a background of electronic music, being one half of electronic / experimental duo The Cray Twins. His recent work has involved environmental recordings, which he uses to make instruments from the sounds of the landscape: from the wind and the waves, from traffic and machinery, from birds’ wings and human voices. This is now merging increasingly with his engagement in the British folk tradition: the music of the land, using instruments made of the landscape. Old and new music using old, new instruments. Breath, voice and then everything.
