The Springsteen Sessions to Play Mareel, with Support from No Sweat
05 September 2013
Shetland Arts is pleased to reveal that
The Springsteen Sessions will play at Mareel, with support from No
Sweat, on Saturday 7 December.
After their headline festival appearances
this summer on the Grass Roots Stage at Belladrum and at Fringe By
The Sea, The Springsteen Sessions are undertaking an extensive
20-date tour of Scotland and the north of England - from Lerwick to
For three years now, this talented group
of Scottish musicians has thrilled audiences across the country
with their driving and dynamic versions of the very best of The
Boss & The E Street Band - from the early albums like Greetings from Asbury
Park right through to Wrecking Ball.
All the classics and anthems are delivered
with massive attention to detail, ensuring that the authentic sound
of Bruce & The E Street Band is delivered. Audiences will be
captivated by the drive and energy of The Springsteen Sessions and
will go away exhausted and enthralled by the gripping and energetic
two hour show.
No Sweat are well known locally as one of
the longest serving rock n roll bands in Shetland. Hailing from
Yell, they formed in 1980 and have only had one major line-up
change in their time as a band, going from strength to strength
over the years.
Shetland Arts' Marketing Officer, Lisa
Ward, said: "The Springsteen Sessions are a fantastic tribute to
Bruce & The E Street Band and with loads of fans of The Boss in
Shetland, plus loads of die-hard No Sweat fans, we're expecting
this will be a very popular event!"
