BROWNBEAR kickstarts their Scotland on Tour shows this week with dates all across the country.

The band, led by frontman Matt Hickman, served up a reminder of their on-stage prowess when they returned to live performances recently.

They are out on the road once again this week to play shows as part of the Scotland on Tour initiative to support the recovery of our live music industry.

Hickman said: “It’s brilliant to be getting back out on tour, it’s been a long time coming!

"It’s great to see support for regional venues and areas that are often left off the touring circuit. This kind of support is essential to those areas, especially after the last few years.”

Tonight Brownbear play Beat Generator in Dundee, with support coming from Sunkisst and Katie Nicoll.

Tomorrow, they head to play PJ Molloys in Dunfermline with Sophie De Rose and Glastonbury-bound Lewis McLaughlin on the bill. 

Jonny Watt, promoter of the Fife show, said: "As our industry recovers from the pandemic, this vital support helps artists to get back out on tour, reach places further afield and spread the amazing offering of Scottish music and culture to wider audiences.

"We encourage everyone to visit their local venue and enjoy all of the shows on offer, safe in the knowledge that you are contributing to the continued existence of treasured local independent music venues and supporting these great artists right here in Scotland." 

On Friday, Brownbear head to the Forth Valley area to play at Falkirk’s Trinity Church with Megan Black and Jamie Coleman in support.

Gillian Gardner, business and development for Falkirk Trinity Church, added: “We are
delighted to be able to host another fantastic live event with Scotland on Tour and Afterglow Music.

"We hope this will be another busy event in the church and the people of Falkirk and beyond support these events after a difficult time for the industry.”

Next week, the band heads off to play St Monan's Town Hall on June 23 and then The Mac Arts Centre in Galashiels on June 24.
