An Evening with Syme, Broon & Moon

RUSHfest Scotland presents: An Evening with Syme, Broon & Moon

RUSHfest Scotland presents legends Rush art director HUGH SYME and producer TERRY “BROON” BROWN live on stage in conversation with Paul Beaulieu from the Canadian Music Scene. Music provided by JACOB MOON from Toronto.

If you know Rush, you'll know how important Hugh and Terry are and have been since the band's formative years.

Jacob is a world-class original singer / songwriter renowned for his outstanding solo Rush covers. RUSHfest Scotland is incredibly humbled, privileged and grateful for these 3 guys to come to Scotland as part of this year's fan weekend.

We are more than delighted to have secured two absolutely amazing acts to play for RUSHfest Scotland 2020 on Saturday 13th June at the DRYGATE BREWERY in central GLASGOW from 1pm till 12am.

HEADLINING we have an outstanding 3-piece from Southampton. Known as "KEPLER TEN" for their original music (check out the phenomenal debut album Delta V) and as "R2" - one of Europe's top Rush tribute bands. Their 2 hour headlining set for RUSHfest Scotland will be mainly Rush (of course!) but they have promised us a handful of K10 originals too. Their second album Time and Tide should be out by then.

If that wasn't enough - also performing on the day we will have JACOB MOON - the phenomenal Canadian singer / songwriter who is well known by the Rush community worldwide for his unique take on Rush classics. His rooftop video of Subdivisions went viral on its release in 2008 and his latest New World Man is equally impressive.

MOVING PICTURES (#3 - back to a 3-piece with new front man JOHN POWER) will be playing in the afternoon - the entire Permanent Waves album to celebrate its 40th anniversary - plus one other band to be confirmed - plus the usual shenanigans - VIP(s) still to be confirmed too. Overall - i think you'll agree - we've kinda knocked it out the park again!
