Launched in 2019, FRETS is an intimate acoustic concert series promoted by Scottish post-punk guru Douglas MacIntyre – of Creeping Bent/Port Sulphur renown – in his home town of Strathaven. To date, his determinedly eclectic bookings have included Robert Forster, the Bluebells, Robyn Hitchcock, Tim Burgess, Hipsway, Roddy Woomble and Altered Images. 

Especially for Celtic Connections, the project’s first ever venture outside its birthplace features three of today’s most revered and distinctive rock/pop singer-songwriters, together onstage, performing their own back-catalogue picks plus a few choice covers. It’s a rare chance to get up close and personal with Teenage Fanclub’s Norman Blake, ex-Suede guitar legend Bernard Butler and Love and Money frontman James Grant, all of them also veterans of diverse solo projects and collaborations. 
Opening the show, ex-Thrum songstress Monica Queen previews her forthcoming album Stop That Girl, accompanied by producer/guitarist Johnny Smillie
