Tom Odell’s set will be the main event at the inaugural True North festival in September.
The young musician, who won songwriter of the year at the 2014 Ivor Novello Awards, will play the city’s Music Hall on the second day of True North.
The festival, launched by Aberdeen Performing Arts (APA) will run from Friday, September 25 to Sunday, September 27, at The Lemon Tree, Music Hall and Queen’s Cross Church.
APA’s director of programming and creative projects Ben Torrie said: “We are delighted with the line-up for the first True North Festival, which features a range of artists who provide a snapshot of the fantastic songwriting and performance talent working in the music industry today.
“To have secured the award-winning Tom Odell as our headline artist is the icing on the cake. It will be a great privilege to witness him performing alongside the exciting range of established and emerging musicians taking part in the festival.”
Rising young Scots band Fatherson will open the festival with support from The 101. Singer Wounded Knee will perform at The Lemon Tree, as well as a Songwriter’s Circle event and concert with The Unthanks and Rachel Sermanni at Queen’s Cross Church.
The closing gala will be a celebration of the music of Neil Young, now in his 70th year, featuring Eddi Reader, Justin Currie, Admiral Fallow, Emma Pollock, Withered Hand, Tommy Reilly and Blue Rose Code.
