In a surprise visit to Oban today, 22 year-old Scots musician Be Charlotte announced live from the town’s iconic McCaig’s Tower that she will play Oban Live music festival in two weeks time.
The Dundee star, who signed to major record label Sony Music last year, is the last act to be added to an impressive line-up at Argyll’s biggest outdoor live music festival.
She joins Skerryvore, Red Hot Chilli Pipers, Lucy Spraggan, We Banjo 3, Elephant Sessions and more at the popular west coast Scottish gig.
Since starting to find her voice as a teenager with an acoustic guitar, Charlotte Brimner, performing as Be Charlotte, has been focussed on finding inner strength and inspiring others to do the same, a message that was passed over to a number of Oban’s primary school pupils today.
Touring schools in and around the scenic Argyll town, excited pupils were treated to a surprise visit from the Scots star who performed an acoustic set and talked about her inspiring musical journey. Youngsters were encouraged by Charlotte to believe in themselves, to pick up and learn an instrument and to get involved in music.
Even although she is still at the beginning of her career Be Charlotte has toured around the UK, Europe, North America and Asia as well as sharing the stage with Major Lazer in Africa in 2018.
Her new single Brighter Without You is out now. Be Charlotte plays Oban Live on Friday June 7. The event takes place at Mossfield Stadium on June 7 and 8. Tickets are selling fast and are available at www.obanlive.com.
