GILCHRISTIANS: The Gilchristians were formed in 2008 after the tragic death of their namesake, Kenneth Gilchrist. The band keep the songs of Kenny alive with each performance either bringing out versions of songs that haven’t been heard for years or latter day classics that simply demand an audience. Since forming the band have played every at the MOK Fest performing at Survivors Nights and in 2012 supporting the Saw Doctors at the main Festival concert. The band can also be heard every year at The Kintyre Songwriters Festival which is held at the end of May.
We.R.soul return to perform at their second MOKFest having played a fantastic performance at last year’s Survivors Night.
Bringing together established local musicians and fresh talent they’ve created a sound that is powerhouse vocals, lively rhythm section and dazzling horns all fused into one.
The band are currently hard at work preparing an irresistible set of classic and modern hits, including a few songs you never knew were made to be performed this way
At age 17 Matt Mcallister picked up the guitar and by 21 he had his first gig. Now at age 25 he’s on the edge of stardom! His debut single ‘Scottish Winds’ along with some other music videos has now been viewed over 250,000 times, he’s had articles in newspapers such as The Herald and Daily Record and has been hunted by talent shows such as the X factor.
About to embark on an American tour , with previous shows adding up to well over 200 gigs including gigs in London, Belfast, Dublin, Glasgow and Edinburgh under his belt and his debut album ‘Stories’ set to drop this summer the sky’s the limit for this young and hungry musician.
On the 25th of August in Campbeltown Matt will play with his full band who have amazing local musicians such as James Murdoch, Mark Leishman and Alex Wotherspoon setting the stage a light!, It’s a show not to be missed!
