We’re absolutely delighted to announce two of our top class performers for this year’s TEDxGlasgow event. We are extremely lucky to be welcoming Colonel Mustard & The Dijon 5 and the Glasgow Philharmonia to the SEC Armadillo.
Colonel Mustard & The Dijon 5
The shiny disco ball, hat wearing, ultimate genre hopping, twisted festival, live stage machine that puts the emphasis on music, entertaining and laughter. Colonel Mustard & The Dijon 5 are a party at its most outrageous and ridiculous.
On Saturday the 13th May, they played their first gig of the year and what a triumphant show it was, welcoming over 1,000 6th Dijons (the affectionate name for our loyal extended family) to the O2 Academy Glasgow as part of the Southside Fringe Festival. That started their Cross The Road Tour 2017, where in their words they; “will be bringing our road safety message and Dijon brand of peace, love and Mustard to TEDxGlasgow before heading into the fields to play sixteen festivals across the UK and South Korea; from Liverpool Sound City to Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival to Boomtown Fair to Edinburgh Festival Fringe to Zandari Festa in Seoul.
“Your Colonel needs you! Thank you for being a friend. Peace, love and Mustard.”
Following a number of diverse sell out shows, Glasgow Philharmonia has achieved phenomenal success reaching a wide demographic throughout Scotland.
Founded by Ross Gunning in 2012, the orchestra has welcomed over 400 young people to perform with them since. Having performed at events such as the Commonwealth Games Medal Unveiling 2014, Stars on Parade Remembrance event 2013, Scottish Variety Gala Performance 2016, Star Wars Premieres 2015 and 2016 in Glasgow, they have also sold out their Movies to Musicals events and collaborated with a number of West End, Broadway and TV stars.
We can’t wait to hear these very different acts, bringing music and joy to our crowd on Friday 2nd June – see you there!
