From his work with Glasgow's new-wave pioneers Orange Juice, and throughout his heroic solo career, Edwyn has been a true Scottish icon for decades, and a constant inspiration for all of us here. His songwriting spark remains as vital as ever - with latest album, Understated, on constant rotation on our stereo over the summer. His credentials as a producer and label manager (at AED Records) seal his DIY indie-legend status - we couldn't think of a more appropriate act to headline our first major event as a label, and we're utterly delighted that he's accepted!
David from Kid Canaveral had this to say …
"When we found out who had agreed to headline this year's Baubles we spent days Falling and Laughing. We were Losing Sleep trying to contain our excitement and not shout it all over the internet.
We are Simply Thrilled Honey to announce that we have an international pop superstar, he's nobody's Consolation Prize, (To Put It in a) Nutshell, it's Gorgeous George himself... EDWYN COLLINS. Three Cheers For Our Side, indeed.
(Sorry for all the puns. I Can't Help Myself.)"
Ooft. As you can see, he's excited! We all are - it's going to be a very special day, indeed.
Christmas Baubles is an all day music event, taking place from 2pm until midnight on Saturday 14th December at Portobello Town Hall, Edinburgh - with a host of amazing acts selected by Kid Canaveral and Lost Map. We'll be announcing more acts in the coming months. Meanwhile our early-bird tickets are flying oot o' the window - the first batch sold out immediately, and we're almost out of our second batch at £17.
The event has sold out every year, since its inception in 2010, and tickets are selling faster this year than ever before. Advance tickets are gonna go up to £20 each, shortly - before settling at £22 - so be sure and buy quick to get a bargain!
