    Roddy Hart & The Lonesome Fire

    "Widescreen....poetic....evoking the epic rock of Springsteen........"

    Just some of the superlatives that have been thrown in the direction of Roddy Hart & The Lonesome Fire.

    One of Scotland's best kept secrets (they deserve to be Springsteen-massive), the HAC is the ideal environment in which to watch Roddy and his 5-piece band close up and personal.

    As a wee aside, fans of Sean C Kennedy will likely enjoy this.

    Tickets available direct from the HAC or via here.

You really should get along to one of our gigs...
