Mugdock Music Festival is back again in November this year by popular demand and promises to be bigger and better than ever before.

Performers include internationally acclaimed Scottish singer-songwriter JJ Gilmour, bass player and songwriter for Wet Wet Wet Graeme Clark, SLIDE guitarist and songwriter Dave Arcari, Al Fleming who’s best known as a Scottish Blues singer, Scottish singer/songwriter Craig Jeffrey and Kat Healy who is recognised for her well-crafted songs and beautiful voice.

Gigs will be held from Thursday, November 7 to Saturday, November 9. Tickets cost £10 and booking is essential, phone 0141 956 6100.

There will also be a Saturday matinee concert at 2pm when families will be invited to embark in a space adventure with Mr Boom, to his fantasy lunar world of dance, story and fun.

Talented young musicians can also enter the festival’s first youth open mic contest with two sections - juniors (S1 to S3) on Tuesday, November 5 6.30pm to 9.30pm and seniors (S4 to S6) on Wednesday, November 6 from 6.30pm to 9.30pm.

Park manager and organiser Iain Arnott, said: “This is a chance for up and coming musical talent to compete for free studio time at the Audio Lounge in Glasgow - a fantastic prize.
