RISING Scottish star, Michael Cassidy, who recently supported Ben Howard on his Every Kingdom UK tour, takes to the stage at The Three Sisters, on the Cowgate, tomorrow as part of the sixth leg of Magners Original Sessions.

The singer-songwriter, whose alternative take on folk music was described by one reviewer as ‘Scotland’s best kept secret’ is just back from a string of support slots with the likes of Kimbra, Frightened Rabbit and Amy Macdonald,

“I am so excited to be a part of Magners Original Sessions this summer, and can’t wait to play at the infamous Three Sisters,” Cassidy says ahead of the gig.

“With it following on from the Festival, I am sure the venue is going to be packed, and I’m looking forward to showing everyone there how to celebrate.”

There should at least be a Festival atmosphere.

“From music to street magicians, a hog roast to hoola-hoopers, there is something for everyone and we can’t wait to give drinkers a spontaneous fun time,” says Karen Crowley, of Magners. “We’re so excited to bring some spontaneous, summer fun to the public.

Also keeping revellers entertained tomorrow will be street magicians Colin Mckenzie, Jay George and Eliot Bibby, hoola-hooper Chanti Hobbit, a traditional hog roast with Magners flavoured apple sauce, a photo booth as well as “an overall sense of general cheekiness.”

Live performances come courtesy of Michael Cassidy, Nathan Flutebox Lee, and Saint Max & the Fanatics, with a DJ set by Rebecca Vasmant.
