Malcolm Middleton, Withered Hand and The Unwinding Hours among highlights of Tigerfest 2010

The concluding stretch of Tigerfest holds some gems, including a night dedicated to the 17 Seconds label – home to Aberfeldy member Chris Bradley, The Dirty Cuts and The Last Battle. Indie legend Martin Stephenson will be performing with local up-and-comers Fourteenhours and The Blind Assassins, while there are some special treats further afield: a Fence Records night featuring King Creosote and Withered Hand is followed up the night after by a Malcolm Middleton gig in Dunfermline, and former Aereogrammers The Unwinding Hours play Aberdeen with Katerwaul.
