American Roots band ,The Hot Seats to play Inverness as part of a Scotland only tour on the 21st of July.
The Hot Seats create an impressive blend of the virtuosic soloing and tightness of bluegrass, the band-driven rhythm of old time, the jerky bounce of ragtime, and the swagger of good old rock and roll.
Also described as a “bubbling fountain of virtuosic insanity”, the five piece have built a strong support in Scotland and the feeling is mutual with Josh Bearman from the band saying “”We have so many friends over here now that it feels a bit like coming home,” he said….We’re ready to party!”With that attitude it is unsurprising that they have played numerous festivals from Celtic Connections and Speyfest to a Herald Angel winning performance at the Edinburgh Fringe.
You will have the opportunity to buy their new EP consisting of tracks “leftover” from the well received 2012 release Feel.
Tickets are available for theInverness gig via the Eden Court.
