Larry Love, of Alabama 3, said: "We're really looking forward to coming to Dumfries and joining in the Big Burns celebrations.

"We'll make sure the Sunday Session is a fitting finale to the festival so make sure you still have plenty of energy left and save the last dance for us."

Executive producer Graham Main said the eighth edition of the event promised some "incredible bands".

"With the likes of Alabama 3 and The Troggs on bill for the Sunday Session we know that anyone who has any energy left after our 11 days of amazing events will be able to dance into the small hours," he said.

"The new acts we're announcing today complete a programme that promises to create an amazing winter festival experience in honour of Burns.

"As well as all the music and comedy stars heading to Dumfries we've got lots more great surprises for everyone to enjoy including performances by community projects and local bands.

"It will be a winter festival and Burns supper like no other."
