Big Country are back big time, with a new album, new members… and the classic sound.
Big Country are a new wave/alternative rock band which formed in Dunfermline, Scotland in 1981. 30 years on, they are still as committed to the live stage and performing their unique sounding music as ever. ‘Back then we built our audience through non-stop gigging” says founder member Bruce Watson, “The band feels reborn and we are happy to go out there and prove it every night no matter how far we have to travel”.

Rhythm and Blues inspired band living in Carlisle. Metaphorically stepping straight from a 1950’s time machine, sent from Mississippi and crash landing in Cumbria, the group come vocally and visually inspired by the sentiment and character of the 50’s. Harnessing their songwriting talent with an explosive repertoire of classic sounds and lyrics the band pass an admirable nod to International blues legends including Chuck Berry, Muddy Waters and Bo Diddley, together with the outrageous techniques of guitar hero Wilko of Dr. Feelgood.
