    Roddy Woomble

    Roddy Woomble, esteemed frontman of Scots' indie rock outfit Idlewild embarks on a short solo tour in March and he's chosen to stop off at the HAC.

    This will be Roddy's first show under the Freckfest banner, and his first in the HAC, but it's not the first time he's played in Irvine. In 2008, alongside John McCusker and Kris Drever he played a very well-received show in the Magnum Theatre.

    Expect a choice selection of songs from Idlewild's brilliant back catalogue alongside Roddy's more introspective solo material.

    This show will sell out. Act fast!
