Seaside Sons on STV

We were delighted that Seaside Sons were one of the bands on the Live@Troon Futures line up at Girvans a few weeks back.

I just caught their live performance over the weekend from back in February on STV Riverside Sessions and thought we should share the link in case you missed it.

They were great live in Troon and we look forward to welcoming them back later in the year again.

Check out the video of their TV performance.
