The summer season for the Caird Hall in Dundee has been announced, and it promises to be a scorcher.

The publication of the new May to September brochure reveals an impressive line-up of acts, from the hilarious comedy ‘Sex in Suburbia’ featuring Claire Sweeney to the appearance of two of the U.K.’s top comedians, touring with their own special shows - Alan Carr with ‘Yap Yap Yap’ and Kevin Bridges’ ‘A Whole Different Story.’

Writing in the brochure Susan Gillan, Caird Hall Manager, said: “Frank Sinatra played the Caird Hall in the late 50s, and it’s hard to believe this would have been his 100th year.

“Hear the music that made the man, with Kurt Elling and The Scottish National Jazz Orchestra.

“You can hear the mighty Caird Hall organ in all its glory in the Summer Organ concert series and Niall McCann and Ben Fogle recount the amazing trials, adventures and challenges they have experienced in their forthcoming shows.”

The summer organ concerts are held on Tuesdays, May 5, June 2 and July 7 when three virtuoso players - John Kitchen, Kevin Bowyer and D’arcy Trinkwon - will present three ‘town hall-style’ programmes.

The music continues with the Dundee Strathspey & Reel Society Fiddlers’ Rally on Saturday, May 16 before the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra with Kurt Elling will give a truly unforgettable centenary celebration of Frank Sinatra on Thursday, May 21.

Gary Mullen & The Works will then perform ‘One Night of Queen’ on Saturday, May 23.
