Big Hand have announced some Scottish tour dates for all the fans north of the border. The group have been described as “Chuck Berry and Madness having a fight with Manu Chao trying to break it up, with the Chilli Peppers and a load of Eastern European folk musicians watching n’ cheering it on, all with a bottle of Jagermeister” and with a reputation like that, we don’t think you can go far wrong!
