Children of Leir are a Leicester-based psychedelic two-piece consisting of Stuart Gray and Gregg Hunt.
While they are based down south they have a very local connection through vocalist/keyboard player Stuart who was born and bred in Larbert, who also may be familiar to many as the front man of Viva Stereo.
Gregg was previously in acid rock band Cherry Choke and Anglo-French Art/Pop duo Obscure Ivresse, and is looking forward to making the trip up to Stuart's home town to play the Dobbie Hall.
This will be Children of Leir's first show north of the border and are sure to dazzle the crowd with, to quote Gregg; "some Motorik-driven, mystical-horror influenced, psychedelic folk-pop"!
