It has been 32 years since Scottish twins Craig & Charlie Reid, also known as The Proclaimers, emerged. And since then, their enduring appeal across generations has carved a niche for themselves where pop, folk, new wave, and punk collide.
The emotional honesty, political fire, wit, and sing-along raucousness of their songs and an extensive touring schedule have enlightened and entertained fans throughout the world.
The Proclaimers’ songs are timeless, capturing a gamut of human emotions, written with poignancy, emotional honesty, political fire, and wit.
Their songs feature at weddings, funerals and everything in-between, and there is one song, an early celebration of falling head over heels in love that is known the world over and has become a staggering global anthem.
They have even inspired a musical, the play and film ‘Sunshine on Leith’. The musical had its fourth UK run from April to June last year, with its biggest production to date by West Yorkshire Playhouse.
2018 also marked the 30th anniversary since the release of the “Sunshine On Leith” album and in August saw The Proclaimers add to their magnificent songbook with the release of their 11th studio album “Angry Cyclist”.
2022 will see The Proclaimers heading into the recording studio to record their 12th studio album, followed by festival appearances in the summer and a 35-date UK & Ireland tour from October to December.
Talismanic songwriter John Bramwell will be returning to the stage on this tour as a special guest to perform songs from his new album “The Light Fantastic” and some “I Am Kloot” classics.
