Fri 6th July: A TORN MIND plus guests PENFOLD - Howden Park Centre, Livingston

 Homegrown Season at Howden Park Centre, featuring A TORN MIND and PENFOLD 
West Lothain's unsigned and emerging talent take to the stage for special "Homegrown" live concert!

West Lothian-based rock band A TORN MIND take to the stage as part of Howden Park Centre, Livingston's 'Homegrown Season' - a series of  events supporting homegrown, grassroots talent from West Lothian. Set to be an exciting evening of live music, audiences can expect energetic performances from two of West Lothian's freshest young bands!

Headliners A TORN MIND play an lively brand of modern progressive rock, combining wide ranging influences to create fresh and unique music that is powerful and forward-thinking. Currently at work on their forthcoming second record, expect a lengthy live performance featuring new material and old favourites alongside some unique acoustic versions, with plenty of big riffs and lots of melody.


Support comes from special guests PENFOLD, who add their hook-filled brand of singalong alternative rock to the lineup. Fresh from their recent sold-out EP launch, the band's entertaining live show is a must see!
