From London, for the first time, the great Hideaway show comes to Scotland. It celebrates two of the most iconic and legendary British pop voices of our time – Dusty Springfield and Shirley Bassey. Janette Mason MD, has arranged the ultimate songs from these catalogues for full stellar band and brass. David McAlmont and Horse, two of this country’s most spellbinding, iconic singers, more than rise to the occasion. 

David McAlmont – one of the greatest singers this country has ever produced. He has collaborated with everyone from Bond composer David Arnold to Michael Nyman, Paul Weller and most famously with Bernard Butler producing the classic hit single Yes. McAlmont’s music is pure emotion, drawing unique, soulful portraits from his own life and philosophies, all beautifully framed by the finest soul.

Horse is recognised as one of Scotland’s all time greatest vocalists and songwriters. With a successful career spanning over three decades, she has toured with several international artists including Tina Turner, BB King, Bryan Ferry, Burt Bacarach. One of her best known songs Careful, was covered by Will Young.
