A Falkirk singer songwriter will support a member of Primal Scream in one of the country’s most iconic venues.

Fly Jackson will play King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut in Glasgow on Sunday to warm up for Little Barrie. The Nottingham-based band, with Primal Scream’s Barrie Cadogan as the frontman, is touring the UK and asked Fly Jackson to open for them.

Christopher Jackson, from Polmont, was thrilled to have the chance to work alongside such a well established band and jumped at the chance.

Chris, who works for animal education service Zoo Lab, said: “We’re looking forward to testing ourselves against a touring act and seeing how we fare. I’m sure it’ll be an amazing night for the people in attendance and we’re looking forward to playing it.”

Fly Jackson is Chris, who sings and plays lead guitar, with Laura Duchart providing additional vocals. Chris’s former bandmate in The Ray Summers, Billy Kay, is on the bass and backing vocals, Dan Adam on drums, Alan Hotchkiss plays guitar and keys, Stevie Black is lead and slide guitar whilst Robert Henderson plays trumpet.

The baritone voice of Chris complements the sweet light sound from Laura and the mystical folk vibes from Fly Jackson take you to Marrakech via a hippie caravan trail.

Tickets for Little Barrie featuring Fly Jackson are available from the usual ticket outlets, priced £10, but you can buy tickets via the band’s online link for just £6.
