ONE of Scotland’s most successful singer/songwriters, KT Tunstall, returns to Fringe by the Sea in North Berwick on Saturday, August 8.

Tunstall’s show at the seaside festival in 2017 was a sell-out; this year she will be supported by Edinburgh band Swim School.

Also returning to the event is Glaswegian comedian Janey Godley, whose 2019 show was also sold out, while new to East Lothian this year are The Poozies, a British all-female traditional folk band, and music duo Jill Jackson and Rab Noakes.

KT’s debut album Eye To The Telescope, released in 2004, sold over 5 million copies, and in the next decade she produced three more critically acclaimed albums.

Her support band, Swim School, is an Edinburgh-based four-piece who have played at the likes of TRNSMT, King Tuts Wah Wah Hut and Belladrum festival.

Comedian Janey Godley is infamous for her live voiceovers.

She has been performing award-winning comedy around the world for 20 years.

She plays Fringe by the Sea on Friday, August 7.

New to Fringe by the Sea are The Poozies, a British all-female traditional folk band formed in 1990. They first made waves with their eclectic arrangements of traditional Scottish and have toured worldwide. They play the Lighthouse Spiegeltent on Sunday, August 16.

Appearing on Saturday, August 15, are Jill Jackson and Rab Noakes, who met in the mid-1990s when Rab produced The Brand New Opry for BBC Radio Scotland and Jill was as a guest on the show.

They now work together, entertaining with a wide range of songs, both original and covers.

Jackie Shuttleworth, general manager of Fringe by the Sea, said: “With International Women’s Day this Sunday, it seems appropriate that we are announcing these four great female acts for this year’s festival.

“Tickets for all are bound to sell out quickly, so we do advise to book early!”

Tickets for these acts are available from today (Thursday) via

The new additions join a line-up which already includes chart-topping electronic dance duo Basement Jaxx, American singer/songwriter Candi Staton, Stornoway folk rockers Peat and Diesel, plus Huey Morgan, Dat Brass and The Blues Band.
