Following sell out shows featuring King Creosote, Spare Snare, Jonnie Common, RM Hubbert and Rick Redbeard, this is also a special night for organiser, host and musician Dominic Venditozzi, as his band Sonny Carntyne release their new e.p., ‘Saltstraumen’. “We’re always really excited about the gig and have a different line up whenever we play live, so we have a set of old and new material. It’ll be great seeing as many friends of the show and new faces as possible to make it a success. Besides us, Kid Canaveral are great fun and uplifting to see live so I can’t wait for that as well as Lindsay and Adam from Randolph’s Leap. We’re lucky to have such a strong line up in a wee village.”
Newport Sound has gone from strength to strength since its inception as an acoustic gig in a Newport café to an event sought out by leading alternative artists from around Scotland. For this show, those coming are also encouraged to get involved and submit their own selections for the between acts playlist through this Facebook link.
