Azure Halo are a six piece Indie/Psychedelic band hailing from Glasgow, Scotland. They have been likened to The Velvet Underground, The Doors and The Stone Roses and a recent live set was described as “Like something from a Tarantino film.” Singer Rik has already had one of his songs “Left in The Blue” covered by Californian, 60’s psychedelic band The Electric Prunes.

Les Vieuz – Glasgow Listen Again
Les Vieux are from Glasgow but they love to play the Cajun music of French-speaking SW Louisiana, plaintive waltzes and lively two-steps on fiddles, button accordion and guitar. The whole thing started when Bill recruited Sandy, formerly of Glasgow Cajun band “Zut! La Chute….” to play guitar along with his beloved new Cajun accordion, Bill quickly enlisted fiddlers Roger & Elly and Les Vieux were born.
