Northern Irish garage blues duo The Bonnevilles are set to play in Montrose this week as part of their UK tour.

Promoting their highly acclaimed album ‘Folk Art & The Death of Electric Jesus’, Andrew McGibbon Jnr and Christopher McMullan will take to the stage of the Star Hotel, on New Wynd, on Friday, March 28.

Andrew is a deeply soulful vocalist, delta surfing guitarist and powerhouse drumming man-mountain.

The duo have earned a reputation as one of the most incendiary live acts in the U.K.

Formed in 2008 The Bonnevilles quickly recorded their debut album ‘Good Suits & Fightin’ Boots’, which was released on garage label Motor Sounds.

The following years saw them tour in Europe and play shows with T Model Ford, Scott H Biram, Bob Log III,

The Black Diamond Heavies, Kid Congo, The Fall and Pete Molinari. 2013 saw them release their second album to high acclaim with rave reviews in Mojo and Q magazine and a Northern Irish music prize nomination.

Support for the Montrose show comes from local one man band The Rag N Bone man who recently toured with The Bonnevilles on his UK and Irish tour.

Further support comes from local indie blues five piece The Dead & Buried, Falkirk’s Garage Punk band Electric Alice and local solo artist Wishy.

Doors for the gig open at 7.30 p.m. upstairs at The Star Hotel and is free entry.
