Scottish singer-songwriter is to be one of the star attractions at May’s Montrose-based music festival MoFest, it’s been revealed.

The festival takes place from May 25 to 27, and Reader will be performing at the Montrose Town Hall on the first evening.

Known both for her own solo material and work with Fairground Attraction, she will be supported by State of the Union, who are fronted by her sometime collaborator Boo Hewerdine.

Montrose Music Festival has previously features acts such as The Proclaimers, The Average White Band and Deacon Blue.

‘Mo Fest’ chairman David Paton said: “The Montrose Music Festival has grown each year, so this committee has felt the need to come up with a line-up to meet the expectations of the festival-goers.

“We are very excited to announce Eddi Reader as our headline performer. She is a class act and her eclectic range of styles sums up the festival beautifully.

“We have a few surprises in store this year so look out for more announcements very soon.”

Meanwhile the focal point on Saturday will be the open-air stage at the High Street piazza, running from 10.30am to 5.30pm, while the Youth takes place at the town hall from 1pm to 5pm.  

The only ticketed event is the Friday night gig in the town hall, with tickets going on sale this Friday, while the rest of the weekend’s entertainment is completely free of charge. For more information visit www.montrosemusicfestival.co.uk.
