Later that usual, as a result of some unforeseen issues at Dear Scotland HQ, Vic presents his weekly round-up of Scottish international gigs with a closer look at Rachel Sermanni. I’m also conscious that I may be missing a few gigs so if you see any glaring omissions let me know.

Rachel Sermanni in LA
by Vic Galloway

Carrbridge singer-songwriter, Rachel Sermanni is only 19 years old and yet has a maturity that belies her tender years. Whimsical yet forceful folk-pop is her stock-in trade, with expert arrangements, wistful melodies and lyrics dwell on elements of nature, fantasy, love and love-lost. Her voice is pure, her guitar is acoustic and her star is very much in the ascendence.

If you want fresh, new and exciting music that comes from the heart… Look no further than this acts, playing in California this week!

Also on tour this week: Mogwai, Nazareth and North Atlantic Oscillation.
