Small Towns Easter

Loads of live and local music for Easter Weekend!

Small Town SoundsThe Dumfries and Galloway live music scene always comes out in force to celebrate the Easter Weekend and this year is no exception! Friday and Saturday have a full line up across the region, with Sunday seeing Dumfries and Annan with more of the action. The Queen of the South Bar in Dumfries is jam packed with gigs as usual, with the Barstow Bats gig on Sunday night absolutely guaranteed to be busy, and the annual Station House EasterFest takes place over Friday, Saturday and Sunday. And those Annan folks know how to party, let me tell you!
