Scottish Musicians in the US!

By Craig Thorburn - May 25, 2019


It's been a while since I posted a blog on the website, but you can be on the look out for a lot more content coming up over the summer.  I'm here today to provide an update on a number of Scottish artists that are going to be touring the US this summer!

Lewis Capaldi

Lewis Capaldi has taken the UK by storm in the last year - from 'Someone You Loved' taking the number one spot in the UK official chart to having the fastest selling album of 2019 so far. His incredible voice is not something to be missed (along with his amazing instagram stories).  He kicks of his US tour next week and, with a break for his summer sessions in Edinburgh, will be here until October.
DC Dates: June 3rd - U Street Music Hall (SOLD OUT), October 12 - 9:30 Club


The Scottish celtic rock band from the islands of Scotland will be coming to the US later this year on the back of a UK tour.  The band will be in US and Canada this summer, for some festivals before returning in the early fall with a more extensive list of cities
MD Date: September 27 - Amp by Strathmore, North Bethesda

Red Hot Chilli Pipers

While their longer US tour happened earlier this year, the bagpipe rock collective will be in the US again for highland games and Irish festivals in August and September this year.


Another band which had a longer US tour last year will be back for a few gigs and special events from the end of June.  Sadly no dates near DC this time round...

Catholic Action and We Were Promised Jetpacks

The Edinburgh indie band We Were Promised Jetpacks (which I think is the best band name I've ever heard) will in the US be tour with the Glasgow rock band Catholic Action from the beginning of June, with their penultimate gig in DC at the end of July
DC Date: July 30 - U Street Music Hall

Daniel Sloss

On the stand-up comedian scene, Daniel Sloss has shot to fame in recent years - with two Netflix specials available (which I highly recommend!).  He will be returning to the US with his unique style of stand-up from mid-June with a two week stint at the Soho Playhouse in New York City.  He'll continue around the US until beginning of August - the closest to DC being a show in Philadelphia.
PA Date: July 27 - The Filmore, Philadelphia
