& rebecca connelly
A double whammy of talented trios showcasing a treasure trove of killer original songs at the Dibble Tree Theatre, Carnoustie
Bringing passion & determination to all aspects of her music career, REBECCA CONNELLY won best female artist at the So Cal live music competition in Los Angeles where she lived for 8 years.
Her first EP "Days Like This" was recorded with Grammy Award Winning producer Justin Gariano and led to performances at the prestigious House of Blues in Hollywood and a tour of Scotland, including at the Rock 'n’ Roll Half Marathon in Edinburgh, the infamous Hootenanny in Inverness and the Perthshire Amber Music Festival.
Moving back to Scotland in 2013, Rebecca met her future husband and collaborator, session drummer Scott Burrell. The release of her second studio album "California" in February 2020, put Rebecca on the Scottish Singer-Songwriter map with her country/pop/folk inspired songs.
Completing the trio for this show, they'll be joined on bass by David MacFarlane.
DROPKICK was formed by brothers Andrew and Alastair Taylor and school friend Ian Grier in Arbroath on the east coast of Scotland. Starting off as a punk-pop band, the band discovered the music of The Jayhawks, The Byrds, Tom Petty and Wilco and their sound gradually matured into more of an alt-country style but without losing the upbeat, catchy melodies of their songs.
Since their self-titled and self-released debut album in 2001, Dropkick have released a further thirteen albums and three EPs, working with the support of labels in Spain and Sweden. During this time the band has had worldwide airplay including countless internet stations and podcasts alongside national coverage on BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio Scotland, BBC Wales in the UK, Radio Gothenburg in Sweden and in Spain on Radio Euskadi, Radio 3 and Onda Madrid. The band has performed regularly in the UK, including festival dates and headline tours. They've also ventured overseas, playing countless shows in Spain and Europe. Amongst existing classics they'll be airing a few songs from their superb new album "The Wireless Revolution" released on 28th April.
