The Mind Sweepers are a four-piece from Dumfries, comprising Paul Winter (vocals, lyrics, acoustic guitar), John McInally (lead guitar, backing vocals), Mark Jardine (bass guitar, backing vocals), and Bryn Thorburn (drums, percussion).

They were formed in 2015, have gigged plenty, and released an album entitled ‘States of Mind’ in early 2018. Influences are varied, as are the songs, which range from psyche-rock, to contemporary folk.

Support will be from superb local singer/songwriter Huey Dowling, who also owns and manages Unit 7 Studio at Bladnoch and the fantastic Emma and The Poets.
