Scottish Refugee Council and British Red Cross have announced the details of their joint opening concert to launch Refugee Week Scotland 2012, on Monday 18th June at Glasgow’s Old Fruitmarket.
The concert is set to be curated by King Creosote, founder of the acclaimed Scottish independent music label, Fence Collective.
As well as headlining the night and performing solo, the Fife musician will also performing with a number of special guests.
His set will include favourites old and new, including songs from his and Jon Hopkins’ acclaimed album Diamond Mine, which was nominated for a Mercury prize and also the recent Scottish Album of the Year Award. (Watch our interview with the pair in January above.)

Opening the night will be Glasgow's own Randolph's Leap, who will be releasing an EP on the Fence Collective label later in the year.
