Tolbooth, Stirling  Stirling's venue for live music and the arts.

Tonight at the Tolbooth - @vishtenmusique For the past decade, Acadian powerhouse trio Vishtèn have acted as Francophone musical ambassadors throughout the world. This Canadian trio continue to dazzle audiences with their fiery blend of #traditional French songs and original instrumentals, fusing #Celtic and #Acadian genres with a modern sensibility and rock influence.
Hailing from Prince Edward Island’s Evangeline area and from the most remote reaches of Quebec, the windswept Magdalen Islands, twin sisters Emmanuelle and Pastelle LeBlanc join musical forces with Pascal Miousse to form a sophisticated sonic signature. Their tight sibling harmonies, layered foot percussion, virtuoso #acoustic and electric instrumentation create an expansive sound that would be difficult to reproduce, in sheer complexity, by a quintet – let alone a trio. Vishtèn’s trademark blend of #fiddle, #guitar, #accordion, #harmonium, #whistles, #piano, #bodhrán, jaw harp, #moog, electric guitar and percussive #dance make for a unique tour de force of the traditional and contemporary.

This Thurs 12th July at the Tolbooth. The Stirling Bridge International Arts Festival proudly presents #TheAlistairMcCullochTrio supported by #FiddleFrenzy
The ‘Alistair McCulloch Trio’ annual Scottish tour has become a firm fixture on the folk music calendar. Featuring champion fiddler McCulloch, alongside former #Capercaillie whistle wizard #MarcDuff, and past Scottish folk musician of the year, #AaronJones of Old Blind Dogs & The Kate Rusby Band on bouzouki, guitar and vocals, the trio has gained a formidable reputation for its dynamic concert performances.
‘Fiddle Frenzy’, all the way from Nashville, Tennessee, are a dynamic performance group of fiddlers from Blair School of Music. They have performed around Tennessee and are excited to be bringing their style of music to Scotland! 01786 274000 #livemusic #folk #trad #festival #acoustic #fiddle #guitar #bouzouki

Tonight at the Tolbooth. @joshrouseofficial You don’t have to work hard to enjoy Rouse’s music. His songs present themselves to you with an open heart, an innate intelligence and an absolute lack of pretension. They are clear-eyed, empathetic and penetrating. Without pandering, they seek to satisfy both your ear and your understanding. The verses draw you in with telling detail, both musical and thematic, and the choruses lift and deliver. They resolve without seeming overly tidy or pat. #livemusic #electronic #folk #pop 01786 274000

This Sat 7th July at the Tolbooth - @joshrouseofficial “Like a baseball player who quietly hits 30 home runs every year or a golfer who regularly finishes in the Top Ten, Josh Rouse‘s continued streak of excellence is easy to ignore and maybe even downplay a little” — Tim Sendra, 01786 274000 Age 14+ #livemusic #electronic #indie #pop

Tonight at the Tolbooth. Sex and death. Love and life. Family, fortune, faith, and fear. Guitar, voices, cello, sax, Roland, wolves. Leggings and jeggings, the multiverse and marshmallows.
