LEGENDARY Ayrshire singer Eddi Reader will be among the stars this summer when Rewind Scotland returns to Scone Palace in July.

And acclaimed English band Foreigner and dapper rocker Bryan Ferry will be the main headliners when Rewind Scotland returns to Scone Palace in July.

Following the festival’s massive 10th anniversary celebration last year, Rewind Scotland returns from Friday, July 19 until Sunday, July 21 with a legendary line-up, celebrating music icons of the 80s and beyond.

Organisers promise to take Rewind to new heights this year with their most musically diverse line-up yet – plus added entertainment including a jam-packed comedy programme and family activities.

Irvine native Eddi said: "I’m very excited to be performing at Rewind Scotland for the first time. The Scottish crowds are always the best! I had a wonderful time at Rewind South four years ago and I’m looking forward to catching up with some of the fantastic artists backstage.”

Foreigner makes their Rewind debut by headlining Rewind Scotland on the Saturday. Headed up by Mick Jones and lead singer Kelly Hansen, Foreigner is one of the most popular rock acts in the world with over 80 million records sold, 10 multi-platinum albums and 16 Top 30 hits to their name. The band’s string of hits include the enduring anthems: ‘I Want To Know What Love Is’ and ‘Cold As Ice".

Foreigner founding member, lead guitarist and songwriter Mick Jones said: "Scottish fans have always been great to us, and we look forward to bringing them an amazing show.”

Also joining Foreigner is Scotland’s own world-renowned music legend Lulu, who has enjoyed a glittering career since the 60s with her signature hits ‘Shout’ and ‘To Sir With Love’.

Blue-eyed soul icon Paul Young will also be taking the main stage. In the 80s, Paul made his mark on the industry with his chart-topping debut album No Parlez, which was certified triple platinum in the UK. He would go on to achieve a string of hit albums that decade and pick up two BRIT Awards. Rounding out the stellar line-up on Saturday alongside Eddi are Joyce Sims, Black Box, The Dire Straits Experience, The Undertones, The Primitives and Hipsway.
