"Backstage" at The Green Hotel in Kinross - a New Mundell Music Venue

Mid October

The music scene in Perthshire is about to be shaken up! A brand new music venue is launching this autumn within The Green Hotel in Kinross. Operated by Mundell Music, the performance area to the rear of the hotel will have separate access, and in keeping with Mundell Music's previous music ventures, gigs will be kept intimate with tickets available for every performance. This means the audience really feels like part of the experience as the acts don't 'disappear' after the event, instead they can often be found hanging around for a drink and a chat with fans!

It was Mundell who put the Music into The Inn at Lathones, St Andrews, hosting regular gigs and workshops as well as the hugely successful Fifestock festival. The new and unique setting at The Green will incorporate many genres of music, with Mundell Music regularly bringing quality artists 'backstage' to meet the fans.

Being just off the M90 and less than an hour from Edinburgh and Perth this promises to be a very exciting new destination for Scottish gig-goers!

Are you wondering who Mundell Music works with? Try these legendary artists for starters! Mick Taylor, Tony Joe White, Big Brother and the Holding Company, Albert Lee, Henry McCullough, Ian 'Mac' McLagan, Simon Kirke, Benny Gallagher, Curtis Stigers, Gene Parsons, Paul Jones, Micky Moody, KT Tunstall, Nik Kershaw, , Glenn Tillbrook, Chris Difford, Snowy White, John Jorgenson, Deborah Bonham, John Hammond, Strawbs, Terry Reid, Finbar Furey, Andy Fairweather Low, Dennis Locorriere, Denny Laine, the late John Martyn, Peter Tork, Stackridge, Man, Graham Gouldman and Mick Wilson, Lindisfarne and many, many others! Every act that Mundell Music works with has one thing in common - they are all true 'artists'.

Expect to see your favourite acts perform intimate gigs. Expect music festivals without the push and shove. Expect workshops with some of the world's most accomplished musicians and songwriters. Expect to be introduced to lots of new music. But most of all, expect the unexpected!

In addition to the amazing live sounds of Rock, Country, Blues, Americana and Indie to be discovered at The Green Hotel this autumn, another treat is in store for music lovers - a retro vinyl & CD shop! Promising to be an attraction in its own right, this will be a place to regularly indulge your passion for music.

AFTER THE GOLDRUSH rises from the ashes of Perth's famous GOLDRUSH RECORDS, the fair city's only truly cutting-edge record shop. Founded in the heady days of Punk and New Wave in 1977 (when music felt a bit dangerous and you could only buy food at the supermarket!) it closed its doors in 2007 after 30 years.

But 3 years on, a vintage vinyl revival is coming in the form of AFTER THE GOLDRUSH, a new venture by John Thomson, to be housed in the unique environment of The Green Hotel in Kinross. John welcomes the chance to continue to work with David Mundell of Mundell Music - a long-standing customer of 30 years!

This exciting project will bring live and recorded music together in the same place. As well as an abundance of quality, used vinyl of all descriptions and ages, the shop will also stock CDs, both old and new, posters, T-shirts and a range of Hi-fi equipment.

Will Kinross become the musical Mecca of the North? If it's diversity, quality, knowledge and inspiration you seek, it most certainly will!
