At the start of October we received news from Scott that he had been thinking about his future plans and as a result he would be leaving the band to pursue other interests. Scott became our full-time Bassist in December 2015 and he has been an integral part of the band during this time.

Since his announcement to us we have been rehearsing with a new Bass player and we would like to announce that Gil Allan from Dunfermline will take over from Scott from 18th November in Derby. Gil is well known around Dunfermline and is delighted to be given the opportunity to work with Big Country so we can continue to play the songs you all love to hear live.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Scott very much for his dedication to Big Country over the last 6 years and we wish both Scott and Gil all the best in their new ventures.
