Freckfest are delighted to present the return of the BMX Bandits to the cosy surroundings of the Harbour Arts Centre.
BMX Bandits were formed by head Bandit and lead songwriter Duglas T Stewart in Bellshill in 1985. Over the years the Bandits have featured members from staples of Scottish pop, including members of Teenage Fanclub, The Soup Dragons, The Vaselines, The Pastels, The Pearlfishers and more but through all the changes Duglas and his songs, combining melodic beauty, warm humour and heartbreaking poignancy, remain at the heart of the band. Stewart's songwriting has been compared to Brian Wilson, Michel Legrand, Ennio Morricone and even Alan Bennet.
2024 will mark the release of BMX Bandits 12th studio album Dreamers on the Run. Expect a preview of songs taken from the new album, alongside favourites from almost four decades of making music.
