Justice Bus promotes the Wilko weekender on Skye
Just as we head off for the inaugural Isle of Skye Blues'n'Boogie Feis this weekend to enjoy liberal helpings of former Dr Feelgood guitar legend Wilko Johnson, news has reached us of another new event which is being planned for next summer by a group of 50s rock'n'roll and rockabilly loving locals.
The Arbroath Seaside Smoker is a newly-founded non-profit organisation dedicated to bringing a quality 50s/rock'n'roll weekender event to Arbroath in Angus. Its stated mission is “to bring quality rock n roll and rockabilly music to the town spread over several venues for a weekend of great music and perhaps some extras”, with the ultimate aim of creating “an event that will rival the Big Weekenders held south of the border”.
Well, we're certainly up for that, and we gather the "extras" may include a vintage themed fair. Even better, it's only a few miles from the Frockery's Forfar HQ so we are already looking forward to frocking, rocking and rolling (in no particular order) the weekend away.
