James Mackenzie has just announced that he will be joining forces with Belfast duo The 1930s for a co-headline UK tour opening in Edinburgh on February 9.


The seven date outing will support his forthcoming acoustic mini-album Curtain Road, which is scheduled for release on February 7, which was produced by Grammy Award winner Steve Orchard. James described the recording as “definitely my strongest material to date and I just can’t wait to get it out there.”

The 1930s (Andrew Cameron and Jonny Solari) have taken the Belfast scene by storm with folky hooks, infectious melodies and captivating live shows. The duo were recently invited by MTV to perform at the EMA’s, and with a single and album scheduled for next year along with a string of high profile fans including Carl Barât and Mumford and Sons.

A lifelong passion for music matched with a geeky fascination for social media and websites resulted in the creation of Inverness Gigs back in 2010. The aim of the site is to help promote, support and generally raise awareness of the local music scene.In fairness fifteen years of being a psychiatric nurse never prepared me for the experiences that we have had over the last few years and the evolution of Inverness Gigs has certainly been a steep learning curve.I currently write (less and less), edit and co-ordinate most of the Inverness Gigs activities.Occasionally seen on Twitter, and  LinkedIn, if you want get in touch you can contact me direct at chris@igi.gs
