The annual Kilbirnie Festival celebrates its 18th consecutive year in 2013 and is pleased to present some excellent stage performers to keep all ages entertained. The Beatles tribute show “Revolver” will get costumed up and practice their Liverpudlian accents at lunchtime. Well-known local musician, and member of internationally acclaimed ensemble Trinity Roots, Rio Hemopo takes a break from his busy international touring schedule to present his own superb roots/jazz/funk songs. Local band Clockwork will wind things up later in the afternoon with their big-band sound of original dub, rock, funk and reggae grooves, all written and arranged by Matt Pike, the talented singer from the Led Zeppelin tribute band Whole Lotta Led.

A full schedule of all performers for all stages will be published and distributed later this week.
