Soul singer. From his ealy days on the local club scene in Minneapolis to releasing a string of huge-selling album.
Originally formed in Edinburgh in 1967, the Bay City Rollers got their big break in the mid 1970s with songs like 'Remember (Sha-La-La)', 'Shang-A-Lan', 'Bye Bye Baby' and 'Give A Little Love'. The band scored a number of No 1 hits both at home and in the US, and had TV series on both sides of the Atlantic. And everywhere they went, their screaming 'tartan army' of fans went too!
Join Les McKeown and his 4 piece band for a celebration of those hectic days and the behind the scenes pandemonium that followed!
Big Country was formed in 1981 by guitar playing founder members Stuart Adamson and Bruce Watson, who both originated from the band's hometown, Dunfermline in Scotland. They were then joined by drummer Mark Brzezicki and bass player Tony Butler who completed the award-winning band.
Regarded by many as a classic, the multi-million selling album Steeltown went straight to the number one slot in the album charts when it was released in 1984, produced by Steve Lillywhite. The band will perform songs from the album as well as their classic hits and live favourites such as Fields of Fire, Chance, Where The Rose Is Sown, Wonderland, Look Away and many more taken from their eight other studio albums which include The Seer, Peace In Our Time and the triple Grammy-nominated The Crossing.
At the age of eight Chantel became the youngest person in the country to pass a Rock school exam and at 12, she was jamming in her native Bradford and evolving into an incredible musician. Described as a prodigy, at 14 Chantel was told by major labels "great voice, but girls don't play guitar like that!" Wisely ignoring that advice, she enrolled at the world-renowned Leeds College of Music and became the first student in the college's history, to achieve a 100% pass mark, with 18 distinctions. Chantel left with a First Class Honours degree in Popular Music and a coveted prize, for outstanding musicianship.

Journalist, television presenter and best-selling author Ned Boulting presents for the first time an honest, self-effacing walk through the world of Bikeology. What drives the cyclist (apart from a sturdy, well-oiled chain) to such ecstasies of endurance? What curious, deep-rooted passions are aroused by the sight of a simple pair of padded shorts? And what on earth is a derailleur? From the humble commuter to the winner of the Tour de France, Boulting takes an off-centre look at what it means to ride a bike, drawing on his own underwhelming adventures in the saddle to his fourteen summers spent hurtling around France in pursuit of the sport's biggest name including no less than Cavendish, Wiggins, Froome and of course Armstrong. A breakneck descent through the history of the sport followed by a lung-bursting climb into the present day - all two-wheeled life is here. Keep your wits about you and be ready to compete in the ultimate test of bicycle maintenance against Olympian gold-medallists Sir Chris Hoy, Chris Boardman and perhaps a few others...
