THE musician behind the Mercury Music Prize-nominated King Creosote has announced plans of a spring festival in Fife.

Anstruther’s Kenny Anderson is also a founding member of Fence Records which intends to hold the two-day event in April of this year in St Andrews.

Fellow musician and label-mate Johnny Lynch, of the Pictish Trail, is another behind the Eye O’ The Dug event, so called for its location on the Scottie dog resembling map of Fife.

Johnny told the Mail: “The event will bring together Fence favourites and some very special guests across various venues in the town.

“As with all Fence events the line-up isn’t going to be revealed just yet.

“However, rest assured it will be as special as every other Fence bash, in fact, maybe just a bit more special.

“You’ll just have to wait and see what we have hidden up our sleeves.”

The music will start early on April 14 and will go on until late.

This will be followed by an all-day bash on Sunday, April 15, from 1pm-11pm.

Tickets for the weekend event start at £40 and went on sale on Monday.

It is for over 16s only with a special rate for St Andrews University students.

Kenny and Johnny have previously organised the Home Game festival in Anstruther and the Away Game equivalent on the island of Eigg.
