Colin MacIntyre is an award-winning musician, producer, author and playwright. He has released eight acclaimed albums to date, most notably under the name Mull Historical Society, having achieved two UK Top 20 albums and four Top 40 singles, since his Gold-selling debut album, Loss.

His debut novel The Letters of Ivor Punch (W&N/Orion) won the 2015 Edinburgh International Book Festival First Book Award. He has been voted Scotland’s Top Creative Talent at the Glenfiddich Spirit of Scotland Awards, as well as into the Greatest Scottish Artists of All Time public poll, and has toured worldwide, including with Elbow and REM. He has performed live on the US College radio circuit, on Radio 4, 6 Music, Radio 1, Radio 2, MTV, Later With and The Jonathan Ross Show, among many others.

2018 will see the release of Colin’s new Mull Historical Society album Wakelines on Xtra Mile Recordings, produced by the Mercury Prize-winning songwriter and Brit Award-winning producer Bernard Butler (Suede, McAlmost & Butler). Summer 2018 also sees the publication of two new books from Colin: his memoir The Boy in the Bubble about growing up on the isle of Mull and his journey from island boy to international musician, which is published as part of the W&N Books/Orion ‘Hometown Tales’ series. Colin’s first book for children, The Humdrum Drum, a picture book with accompanying original songs and audiobook, will also be published this year.

He is adapting his novel for the stage, and has collaborated with those as diverse as King Creosote, political legend Tony Benn, and Trainspotting creator Irvine Welsh. His newest musical incarnation is the emerging Field Stars, an electro art-pop collaboration, produced by the Grammy Award-winning Dom Morley (Amy Winehouse’s Back to Black) and mixed by Lars Norgren (Tove Lo Habits).

Born into a family of writers and storytellers, Colin is a descendant of the Gaelic warrior-poet, Duncan Ban MacIntyre, and grew up on the isle of Mull in the Hebrides (pop. 2,500 people, 26,268 sheep).

Local support comes from Peaks. Peaks is the brainchild of Manchester-based songwriter Ben Forrester. Ben has been a strong component within the Manchester DIY scene for a number of years, predominately known as one half of riff-rock outfit Bad Grammar. Ben started forming ideas as Peaks in the latter half of 2015, officially unleashing the project at the start of 2016 with a series of single/EP releases throughout the year. After a relatively quiet period, Peaks returned with his third EP, Happy Medium, earlier this year which was produced by Tom Peters from math rock mavericks Alpha Male Tea Party. Drawing on a plethora of influences, Peaks combines expansive, post-rock guitar loops and sparkling pop melodies with an early 1990s emo twist.
