North East Promotions have announced that the latest act in a long line of top quality music acts to play Montrose will be Runrig legend Donnie Munro.

Donnie shot to worldwide fame as the voice of multi-million selling Scottish folk rock band Runrig.

He left the band to embark first on a political career and then a successful solo music career.

The concert on February 14 will be a unique acoustic event with a rare chance to see such a star in a intimate setting.

Donnie will be accompanied by Eric Cloghley and Maggie Adamson.

Support for the night will be from Colin Clyne, a local act riding high in the singles and albums downloads charts with his latest album ‘The Never Ending Pageant’ peaking at number six.

Opening the night will be Gleadraich, a pipe rock band from Carnoustie who performed at the Queen’s Baton Relay ceremony in Montrose prior to the Commonwealth Games.
