Two become three as band hits the road

THE Two Man Gentlemen Band, whose zany humour and swing-era musicianship made a big impression at Celtic Connections last year, return to Scotland this weekend, this time as a trio.

Bassist Fuller Condon and tenor guitarist Andy Bean have added vocalist-percussionist Brian Kantor to the line-up for their current UK tour.

They play Carnegie Hall in Dunfermline on Thursday, Eden Court Theatre, Inverness (Friday), Howden Park Centre, Livingston (Saturday), and Harbour Arts Centre, Irvine (Sunday).
