Midge Ure

An artist who has received Ivor Novello, Grammy, Bascao awards along with a flotilla of gold and platinum records, really needs very little introduction.

Musical success is seldom measured in time spans of more than a few years, if not Andy Warhol’s often quoted “fifteen minutes”, so the fact that by the time Midge’s single “If I Was” went to No.1 in 1985 he had already crammed several musical lifetimes into a 10 year professional career, speaks volumes. Slik, The Rich Kids, Thin Lizzy, Visage, Ultravox and of course the most famous one off group in musical history, Band Aid all had the guiding hand of his musical navigation.

Then you have to take into account Midge’s musical directorship of a series of rock concerts for The Prince’s Trust, Wicked Women for Breakthrough and in honour of Nelson Mandela; a Lord Provost award for services to Scottish music; record production for Phil Lynott, Steve Harley and countless others; his video direction of memorable hits by the Fun Boy Three, Bananarama and others, or a whole swathe of landmark singles by Ultravox; TV, theatre and film music credits ranging from ‘Max Headroom’ to stage and big screen.

Midge’s solo gigs include a varied set list drawing on his Ultravox and solo catalogue, plus songs that have influenced him both old and new.

Sur Une Plage
Vancouver-based Sur Une Plage combines the talents of Joshua Wells (of Black Mountain and Lightning Dust, among others) and Colin McKill (of Lord Beginner and Hard Drugs, among others). Discussed primarily as a concept for some time, Wells and McKill eventually began work on Sur Une Plage in December of 2013 at the Balloon Factory, Wells’ Vancouver studio. Eschewing the “traditional” band format of which they are both veterans, Sur Une Plage instead employs a clinical, precise approach to music creation. In their forthcoming EP, icy synthesized textures are blended with thumping bass tones and soaring melodies.
