“The standard of talent among everyone who applied this year was exceptionally high so it was a tough choice but we couldn’t be happier with our lineup for the February tour.
“We hope everyone involved has a great experience touring with Hit the Road and that it gives them a real insight into the world of professional music as well as the chance to perform across Scotland and showcase their music to different audiences.
“It would be fantastic to see a full house at Eden Court next month to support our amazing performers!”
