The Boy Who Trapped the Sun (aka 25-year-old Isle of Lewis native Colin MacLeod) will be playing the Ironworks on Wednesday the 1st of December (officially announced by email 14/10). Hot off the heels of his first album release (Fireplace) and from supporting Fyfe Dangerfield,he finds himself in Inverness.
Taken from his facebook page, an interesting insight into his development:
“The Boy Who Trapped The Sun, funnily enough, is not his real name. Colin MacLeod – for it is he- was discovered swinging round the rafters of an Aberdeen bar, dishing out Deep Purple covers and, he says, “generally acting like an arse.” Having smashed his guitar and knocked himself unconscious on stage, he set to cleaning up both the broken instrument and his act. Thus The Boy moved to London; to become a solo artist and an adult.”
He was one of invernessGiGs ones to watch at Belladrum and did not dissappoint. Tickets will be on sale in the normal places on Friday.
Ps thanks for the headsup, you know who you are!!
