Top acts lined up for The Mill

Mike Hastings and Murray, Stewart & Burns are set to visit Gatehouse of Fleet as part of this season’s Mill on the Fleet Mill Sessions on Thursday, May 23.

Mike is a singer songwriter from Glasgow and is the guitarist of folk-rock band Trembling Bells. He also plays in the Mike Heron Band, Mike and Solveig and The Pendulums.

Mike’s colourful and surreal songs twist and weave unexpectedly around intricate finger-picked guitar patterns. Expect tales of Candlestick Makers, Small Horses, Spirals and the Infinite Reflection of the Golden Sandwich.

Murray, Stewart & Burns are an up-and-coming three-part harmony group hailing from Dumfries and Glasgow, consisting of Emily Murray, Melanie Stewart and Janice Burns, all in their early twenties.

The young trio of friends formed the band at the tail end of 2012 after discovering their seemingly natural ability to blend their individual vocals together to create a beautiful and mesmerising sound.

Taking influence from an eclectic range of musical genres, the girls try to incorporate as much variation as they can into their set lists, including both covers and original songs. They have already bagged slots at Comlongon Rocks 2013 and the Wickerman Festival 2013, as well as having played at the Big Burns Supper earlier in the year.
