We love a good double act here at Rally & Broad towers…Sonny & Cher, Cagney & Lacey, Buffy & Faith. Morecambe & Wise. Eddie & Patsy. Bert & Ernie. Withnail & I…

So, to celebrate all things double and duo, we’re bringing together some of Scotland (and beyond)’s finest in existing and brand new collaborations for our February shows! The Edinburgh bill is packed fuller than a glut of damson jam, from supergroups to multilingual performers. Read on, read on…!

Zara is a “zoo-lol-ogist” with a PhD in crayfish. By day, she works for Glasgow Science Festival, persuading the public to like science as much as she does. By night, she tries to write funny songs about animals, politics (via her alter-ego ‘Lady Alba’) and White Russian-fuelled nights out.

Kirsty Law!

Scots singer-songwriter Kirsty Law s a Rally & Broad favourite and an utterly captivating live act. “‘Beautiful and feisty…  it’s a joy to hear a young singer and writer in Scots with such earthy and conversational character to her singing and songs… a young musician doing things her own way’ (Karine Polwart)
