New bands promoted by Radio 2

BBC Radio 2 will showcase two BBC Introducing bands as part of the network's live music programme, Radio 2 In Concert, when it visits Scotland next week.

Aerials Up and Admiral Fallow will support Paolo Nutini when he performs an exclusive concert for Radio 2 on Tuesday, hosted by Jo Whiley.

Claire Thomas, Executive Producer, BBC Introducing, says: "It's great to be working with Radio 2 to give these two new artists such an amazing opportunity. Both artists played on the BBC Introducing stage at T in the Park this year and to be able to continue to support them in this way across the BBC is what BBC Introducing is all about."

Jeff Smith, Head of Music, BBC Radio 2 and 6 Music, adds: "Radio 2 In Concert is looking forward to being in Scotland for Paolo's 'homecoming' show. We're really pleased that this will also provide concert goers and those listening at home with the added experience of hearing these two up and coming Scottish artists."

BBC Introducing is a multi-platform initiative across BBC Radio 1, 6 Music, BBC Radio 1Xtra, BBC Asian Network, Switch, over 35 BBC Local Radio stations and online.

By extending its reach to Radio 2, the initiative is able to offer new platforms for under-the-radar talent, the BBC says.
