Ayrshire Post


Rose Parade are a three piece band that formed in Ayr, Scotland in 2010. The band consists of Ari Pournaras on vocals, guitar & kick drum , Edward Mackay on banjo, glockenspiel & piano and lead guitarist, Stuart Davidson. Since their formation the trio have been committed to experimenting with music & producing their own mixture of folk, punk, indie and blues to establish a unique and exciting new sound. Their electric live shows are well worth catching to experience the buzz Rose Parade are creating.

The band’s first EP “Grace” has brought wide attention on the Scottish music scene. Jim Gellatly(amazing radio, Clyde, Craig Mcgee (BBC RADIO 1 Introducing), Kowalskiy, Peenko, The Tidal Wave of Indifference and Frankie Ward from ‘The Amazing Folk Roots Show’- who picked “Closer” as track of the week – are a few who are already embracing this unique and dynamic band.

We are currently working on our debut album with Glasgow based producer Paul Gallagher.

The Tidal Wave of Indifference
“Hopes are high that they can take their DIY gigging and kitchen-based recording sessions to a wider audience. With a knack for a catchy tune, their enthusiasm is also infectious”
