SCOTTISH singer songwriter KT Tunstall rocked Edinburgh’s Assembly Rooms for Burns night as part of her nationwide tour. and the audience were treated to big songs as KT and her talented friends rocked through a repertoire from Black Horse and The Cherry Tree to Suddenly I See as well as their version of Fairground Attraction’s Got To Be and Erasure’s A Little Respect.
 KT performed the show as part of her food and music tour with supermarket giants Lidl and guests were treated to drinks and nibbles as they raised money for charity. 
Earlier this week KT who was looking healthy after changing up her diet to fresh food officially unveiled Lidl’s 100th store in Scotland in Cowdenbeath. 
The new supermarket forms part of Lidl’s ongoing expansion and regeneration plans in Scotland and has created up to 40 new jobs for the community. Last year, the retailer announced plans to open a further 12 new stores across the country by 2022, creating 500 new jobs.
We got a chance to chat with KT backstage and she told us she’s absolutely loved showing children how to cook with Lidl’s fresh and natural ingredients. 
She also said it was great to be back in Scotland to catch up with old friends from her old school. 
 It’s going to be a busy year for KT who is working on a few secret projects as well as appearing at Summer Nights in Kelvingrove Bandstand. 
Now in its seventh year, the annual concert series at Glasgow’s Kelvingrove bandstand returns with another truly sensational programme of concerts from July 30 to August 15.
 KT said of her upcoming gig on August 6: “Thrilled to share that I’ll be part of the absolutely stellar line-up for Kelvingrove Bandstand this summer. If you haven’t experienced a gig at this special venue before, I highly recommend it and, if you have...I’m betting you’ll want to come again! The girls & I will see you there."
 Legendary singer/songwriter Edwyn Collins is also billed and said: “I spent a lot of time in Kelvingrove in 1978/79, when I was an illustrator for Glasgow Parks. I designed and illustrated leaflets for walkways and nature trails, it was a very nice job for someone like me, the only paid job I ever had. Once, with some schoolkids on a trail, they asked me if I was a punk. “Yes children, I’m Nature Punk!”. I hardly remember the bandstand then, it was disused, but I am delighted it has been returned to its original glory, hosting great music nights and I am excited to be playing my part this year." 
The Birra Moretti and Eden Mill Village will offer up its finest beers and assorted gins along with a selection of fab street food, there will be no better place to relax and soak up the truely amazing  atmosphere before taking your seats in the beautifully restored Kelvingrove Bandstand. Gates will open each night at 6.30pm.
