Raintown to play Inverness in May.
Joining the charge of acts ,such as The Shires and Ward Thomas to bring country music to a contemporary audience, Raintown are Paul Bain and Claire McArthur-Bain who are nearing a decade performing together.
Drawing comparisons to the American super-group, Lady Antebellum, Raintown have certainly won plaudits and numerous awards for their approach which can be sampled in tracks including ‘Nineteen Again,’ ‘If this was a Love Song,’ and ‘Shut the Front Door’.
During their time, Raintown have supported Scottish music legends Runrig at the O2 Shepherds Bush Empire and Wet Wet Wet with their 25th Anniversary concert, which speaks volumes for the crossover nature of Raintown’s approach. They continue their un-rivalled run of performances at the the C2C: Country2Country music events which have seen them be the only band to have played every event.
Their most recent album , the crowd funded, ‘Writing on the Wall’ was released in 2015 and earned them much praise including Country Music People who described it as “an excellent album from very astute and talented musicians. Listen to it, go and see one of their dynamic live performances and get on the Raintown bandwagon because the best is yet to come”.
Speaking with Paul about the gig he said “We’re really excited to be coming back up to Inverness. We love the area and know the people love a great night of live music; we intend to give them that and more!”. Acknowledging the band’s debut in the iconic venue he added; “We have never played Eden Court before and the One Touch Theatre is such a great room for live music. We think the combination of a great venue, with a big stage, allows us to give the very best show.”
