They have a very busy summer schedule of gigs most notably Burnsfest, Hope for Justice, part of an event at Culzean Castle and Possibilty Screams Unity Grill in June. Keep up with their gig details and follow them during 2019.
They have fantastic new songs in the works at the moment, just having recorded a new song Lights. It is a brilliant slice of blues for a modern generation. Sapphire waves swirls around with great joy and an infectious beat. Gaurded needs some finishing touches but it is very haunting and draws you in to the story of the song.
They started gigging together early 2017 and play great original material as well as some brilliant covers.
They made it to no.9 in The Scottish New Music Global Chart this January 2019 with the great song Let’s not pretend. In June 2018 they made it no 5 with The Streets. Both tracks were written by Scott Hewitt and Scott Nicol (Possibility Screams) with Kirsty getting in on the act with her first attempt at songwriting on Let’s not Pretend.
They played the fantastic Minstrels and Mayhem 2018 in August at Dundonald Castle and Prestfest the same weekend. They played Live@Troon early September and got a great reception and fantastic reviews from the audience. I am sure they gained new fans.
Elaine Lamb played their tracks on Heat FM New York and Sparkle FM which is just fantastic. They played a storming set in October at TamFest in Ayr and they were just brilliant at The Saltire Awards in the Horizon Hotel Ayr in November. They had a busy weekend as they also played the Newmarket St street party in Ayr for Steven Brown Artist.
Gavin Wallace played Let’s Not Pretend at Rugby Park on Saturday 1st December which was wonderful and they played Wildwood Winter Festival in Ayr also in December.
Catching Fireflies kicked off the Hope For Justice event at New Life Prestwick on 18th May with a brilliant blues original track called Lights. They were backed by a stellar line up consisting of Danny Thomson (drums), Darren Kelly (lead guitar), Sean MacDonald (keyboards) and Ian Matchett (bass). This ‘house band’ were sensational all night. Catching Fireflies also played a magnificent emotive cover of Linkin Park’s One more Light which seemed perfect for the evening.
Watch Catching Fireflies grow stronger in 2019 and come along with us on this electrifying ride.
