The Purple Felts (Perth College UHI) a six-piece made up of students from Perth and Dundee, will represent Perth College UHI at the event. Formed in 2014, the band will deliver a set of original funk and high-energy ska.
They will be joined by Courtney Elena, a singer/ songwriter from Dundee, who is also studying at Perth College UHI. Courtney said: “I’m very excited to be playing at this event as it’s a great opportunity for me to spread the word about my up and coming release later this year. It also gives me the chance to show everyone a sneak peak of my new material during my acoustic set. It’s a great platform for this stage in my career and a brilliant opportunity to make new contacts in the music industry.”
Savannah (West Highland College UHI) will travel from Fort William to take part in the showcase. The four-piece will deliver a set of original soft rock songs and covers.
Wing It (North Highland College UHI) will add some modern trad to the bill. The band will play original songs and instrumental pieces in an alternative rock style with jazz elements and a Scottish twist.
