Mid-Summer Update

summer break trucker hatThings have been a little quiet on the site since Freezepop was in town, so we’re well overdue for an update. The Kilted Farmer team has been taking a well deserved break after putting on 8 shows through the first half of the year. There’s still great live music to be seen and heard while we’re on a break. Below are a few upcoming shows that have caught my attention.
