Paisley’s popular music, comedy and arts festival The Spree is back for its 10th year with a thrilling line-up for 2022.
Live events will take place in the iconic Salon Perdu Spiegeltent at the town’s Bridge Street from Thursday 1 – Saturday 10 September, promising a fantastic 10-day programme for gig-goers.
A singer-songwriter and musician from North-West London, Emily Capell has it all – the voice, the talent and the beehive.
With a wide range of influences from Dolly Parton to The Clash, Emily has brought a new genre o country, ska, doo-wopp and pop to the music scene. Since starting out in 2010, Emily has released 3 Eps entitled ‘ Who Killed Smiley Culture?’, ‘ Who Framed Winston Silcott?’ and ‘ Who Stands With Latasha Harlins? ’. The much-anticipated debut album ‘Combat Frock’ was released in October 2019 which included Emily’s single ‘I Found A Footballer To Marry Me’. The album was a huge success only growing her fanbase and cementing her credentials as the new singer to watch.
