Rising music acts set to hit Paisley Takeover stage

Four rising music acts will hit the stage at this year’s Paisley Takeover.

On day one, Polish-born, Glasgow-based multi-instrumentalist and singer Ela Orleans will be joined on the bill by 2019 Scottish Album of the Year Award nominee Andrew Wasylyk.

VanIves, who picked up Best Newcomer at last year’s Scottish Alternative Music Awards (SAMAs), will perform on day two along with neo-soul singer Russell Stewart.

The annual festival – in association with the SAMAs – returns for its third year and will take place on March 13 and 14 at Paisley Arts Centre.

Richy Muirhead, SAMAs creative director, said: “I’m delighted to be bringing the festival back for its third instalment.

“This year we are focusing on a live music programme with four of Scotland’s most exciting alternative artists in some intimate spaces.

“These events will be stunning and accompanied by moving visuals.”

Tickets are on sale now.
