HAMISH STUART BAND
One of Scotland’s real musical greats. The original lead singer/guitarist with The Average White Band through all the classic 1970s albums, Hamish Stuart has had an illustrious career as both songwriter and performer. He has worked with the likes of Diana Ross, George Benson and Chaka Khan (for whom he wrote the No. 1 chart hit ‘Whatcha Gonna Do For Me’) culminating in six years with the Paul McCartney Band. Although still guesting in other people’s projects, since ’94 he has also led his own group, which is a supergroup in every sense of the word.
He continues to be highly active on the scene, working not only with his own band but making guest appearances with the likes of Ringo Starr and Bill Wyman and was seen at the Swansea Festival with the band "360", featuring his old AWB sparring partners Molly Duncan and Steve Ferrone.
Tonight Hamish he will be appearing with his band t Jim Watson-keyboards, Adam Phillips-guitar, Steve Pearce-bass and Ian Thomas-drums A musical treat! Expect AWB hits and loads of great funk and soul classic
“We love Stuart, the funky ex-Average White Band singer and rhythm guitarist with Chaka Khan, George Benson etc. He's still playing a superior blend of soul and jazz with a great band while his voice has that unique smoky soul allure.” Time Out; "Stuart....still sounds wonderful" The Scotsman; "superb band" The Herald Scotland
