Doors Open 7pm | Tickets £15
The Chaplins are no strangers to Troon having supported Eddi Reader on the mainstage last year and then hosting a sell out gig of their own at South Beach Sessions in the autumn.The band will return to play the final event of [email protected] 2015 and charm another audience with their own blend of rootsy/Americana tunes.
The Chaplins are an award winning Americana band based in Glasgow, Scotland. The brainchild of Jill and Lisa, they formed in 2012 as a project that brought together their musical influences. Shortly after forming they were asked to join the much-loved Runrig on their Re-Wired tour which saw them playing to audiences in sold out concert halls and arenas across the UK and Europe. The Chaplins won the hearts of many thousands and were Runrig’s most successful support act to date, selling out of their debut EP ‘Introducing The Chaplins’. Since then they have been touring extensively around the UK developing a fast growing fan base. In 2014 they won The Danny Kyle Stage at Celtic Connections and made their National TV debut when they were asked to perform live on BBC1’s Andrew Marr Show. The band members are accomplished musicians in their own right who together as a unit create a distinctive sound with soaring harmonies and foot stomping music. Seeing them perform live is an event you’ll never forget. Their timeless feel will appeal to all - eight or eighty you will find yourself mesmerised by this outstanding band. Alan Frew from troon continues to tour as a solo singer songwrtier but has put together a new band for 2015 and they will be performing at [email protected] with support from Glasgow storytellers Kittlinclapperdin.
