Edinburgh maverick Finley Quaye was in Brixton last night and he will now head out to Dubai for the Jump Fest on Friday night. Vic highlights that show along with Finley’s gig in Bahrain on Saturday as his pick of all of the Scots touring internationally this week:
Loosely classed as a Reggae artist, Finley Quaye has a unique voice and continues to record, release and tour his music worldwide. He was thrust into the spotlight somewhat unceremoniously in the 90’s yet he has managed to circumnavigate his way through the torturous twists of the corrupt and fickle music-industry.
‘Sunday Shining’ will possibly remain his biggest hit, but he should be cherished by Scotland as a stand-out performer, writer and fighter who still commands large audiences and respect from his peers. Worth a look I’d say, and I’m sure his band are red-hot right now.
Also on tour this week: Biffy Clyro and The Proclaimers. See all dates below.
