WinterStorm have unveiled the full stage timings for all four days of their annual Rock Weekender on Scotland’s West Coast and are celebrating the diverse and international line up for version seven of the ever popular weekend.
The three day event (plus an After the ‘Storm wind down on the Sunday) features some of the Legends of previous years.
Running from Thursday 23rd of November 2023 the event has sold more than 3500 tickets over the four days and will bring together rock bands and fans of all ages and nationalities for the seventh time.
More than ever WinterStorm are delighted at the international thread running through the WinterStorm line up as German guitar legends Michael Schenker (ex-UFO and Scorpions) and Uli Jon Roth (also ex-Scorpions), US based Graham Bonnet, European based Tyketto and Dutch prog rockers Focus and German crowd favourites The New Roses are also all on the bill. Mix in some Aussie rockers in the form of Cassidy Paris and Wicked Smile and add in some South American blood with Brazilian rockers Electric Gypsy and Noturnall on the Sessions Stage.
They’re joined by artistes from across the UK from glam Bad Actress from the north of Scotland and the tribal pipes and drums of Clann an Drumma to the blues of Pat McManus and power of Trucker Diablo from Northern Ireland, the vocals of Chez Kane from Wales and a host of bands from across Scotland and England including North of England hard rockers Massive Wagons and newly added Gin Annie who will open up the whole shebang on Thursday afternoon.
Fans of 80s New Wave of British Heavy Metal wont be disappointed with the return of both Tygers of Pan Tang and Praying Mantis and a warm welcome to Iron Maiden’s original front man Paul Di’Anno and they’ll be complemented by the heavier sounds of Ashen Reach and the more melodic rock with Doogie White, Romeo’s Daughter and FM providing the harmonies and key changes!
The blues have been an integral part of WinterStorm and as well as Pat McManus there will be performances from WinterStorm catalyst Jim Kirkpatrick and a much looked forward to return of Chantel McGregor for both a full band and acoustic set. The Sessions Stage is always popular and again features a diverse range of musical genres none more interesting than the old Scottish rockers section featuring Ayrshire legends The Penetrations and Lyin’ Rampant along with Glasgow. These three were well know in the eighties as part of the Scottish scene and it is just so right to have them all as part of the Legends and Legacies of WinterStorm.
Matt Pearce and the Mutiny, Syteria, Baleful Creed, Bastette, Blue Lena and The Brink complete the rest of the line up for a second stage that would stand up to scrutiny even on its own!
After the ‘Storm was added to the weekend in year two and features an acoustic session on the Sunday afternoon and a more locally focussed gig in the evening.
The three act line up for the Acoustic Sessions this year sees Jason Sweeney, who played with The King Lot in year one open the acoustic Stage followed by Alan and Stevie Nimmo of King King and closed out by Danny Vaughn of Tyketto. This event is almost sold out less than forty eight hours after tickets were released.
The evening event this year celebrates 50 years of the sound of Gaelic rockers with The Runrig Experience and they are supported by Clann an Drumma and the afternoon opens with the local Ayrshire Rock Choir.
Event founder, Ian McCaig said “We always planned for our Legends and Legacies 2023 event to be bigger and better than ever and we are thrilled to be heading for more than 3500 ticket sales over the four days and full hotel rooms across Troon and beyond. We remain hopeful that we can get a three year plan in place with South Ayrshire Council that will allow us to take WinterStorm through to is tenth anniversary in Troon in 2026.”
