Big Country

Big Country
When taking a journey, it's not about the getting there, it's enjoying the view on the way Stuart Adamson

A comment from the late, much missed - but still inspiring - co-founder (along with Bruce Watson) recently recalled by drummer, Mark Brzezicki - these words hit home as hard and true now, as they ever did, as Big Country continue their particular journey, ever forwards.

Steeped in a stunning catalogue of proud and stirring hit songs such as 'Fields of Fire', 'Chance', 'In A Big Country' (which sold 2 million), 'East Of Eden' and their biggest UK hit 'Look Away', along with massive albums such 'The Seer', 'Steeltown', 'Peace In Our Time' and the triple Grammy -nominated, 'The Crossing', Big Country continue to look beyond the next horizon, as they turn the page from 2013 to 2014.

As they bid farewell after three years to Mike Peters, the band - Bruce Watson (guitars/vocals); Mark Brzezicki (drums, vocals); Jamie Watson (guitars/vocals) and former Simple Minds' bassist/vocalist , Derek Forbes - begin a new chapter. The band will be augmented on stage by Simon Hough ex-front man for Denny Laine (Wings), Eric Bell (Thin Lizzy) etc.
