Folks flying high at castle

Have your say

THE Folks will be the special guests for the forthcoming concert by Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds at Edinburgh Castle.

The band were formed when guitarist and writer Michael Beasley hooked up with vocalist Scott Anderson and the duo relocated to the US to record what would become their debut album, I See Cathedrals. The band started 2012 with an HMV Next Big Thing show at the Borderline, playing with US rockers We Are Augustines.

They are Gallagher’s band on a European tour, taking in concerts in Barcelona, Paris, Hamburg and Berlin, and will join the former Oasis star’s new group when they play the capital on July 17.
