Band of Heretics

FORTY-FIVE years since first taking to the stage, this Wednesday could be your last chance to meet the original Heretics as they hand over to a new generation of writers and musicians.

Committed to promoting the poetry and music of Scotland, The Heretics first appeared in 1970 and gave a platform to future household names such as Billy Connolly, Aly Bain and Liz Lochhead.

Following two sell-out performances, a third and final event takes place at the Saltire Society’s Edinburgh HQ. It will be an opportunity to see the original Heretics hand the baton to the New Heretics, led by novelist and songwriter Peter Burnett and writer Craig Gibson.
