Megan Black

With a unique sound combining 70s influences with contemporary commentary on feminism and the LGBTQ+ community, Megan Black brings her deeply personal songwriting to Scotland on Tour. Her latest single ‘Deadly Is The Woman’ expands on Megan’s unapologetic vision, incorporating vintage-inspired sounds from blues, rock and jazz with sharp lyricism.

Full Fat Band

Consists of Fraser McKain, electric guitar and lead vocals, Fraser Urquhar, bass guitar and backing vocals, and Simon Rattray on drums.
Full Fat Band describe themselves as having a melting pot of influences and styles; whether it be the blazing Stevie Ray inspired blues riffs from Fraser M, Fraser U’s frenzied funk bass a la Joe Dart or Simon’s country rhythms fit for Cash himself.
Megan Black said: “I can’t wait to play The Rum Shack, it’s such a unique venue and I’m so excited to have the opportunity to perform in Glasgow again thanks to Scotland on Tour.”

Rum Shack Series

Scotland on Tour will take place over a period of 12 months between April 2022 and 2023 – The Rum Shack series will continue with:

  • Jemima Thewes on Sunday September 4th, 2022
  • Pictish Trail on Tuesday September 20th, 2022
  • Twelfth Day on Sunday October 9th, 2022

Shaun Galbraith, Venue Manager at The Rum Shack said: “We are delighted to be involved with such an exciting Government initiative and looking forward to hosting acts such as Megan Black, Pictish Trail and Twelfth Day amongst others.”

Scotland on Tour will support the creation of hundreds of concerts and performances at much-loved arts centres, town halls and community venues across Scotland. More than 120 artists are set to perform at more than 100 venues across the country as part of the initiative.

The project, which has been created and managed by Active Events, was made possible by £750,000 of Scottish Government backing and will focus on increasing the number of opportunities to showcase and enjoy live music, while bringing exciting acts to the doorstep of city, towns, villages and rural communities.

The year-long Scotland on Tour bill includes both emerging and established artists with genre-spanning acts appearing across the breadth and width of the country, with rock, pop, jazz, classical, folk, trad and acoustic genres all being showcased.
