The JD Set returns to Glasgow at the ABC2 where Scotland’s very own SHARLEEN SPITERI and a host of friends will pay tribute to one of music’s most enduring songwriters on Wednesday 20th April , 2011. Taking songs from ‘Hunky Dory’ alongside other classics from DAVID BOWIE, Sharleen will be joined by Ian McCulloch, Kate Nash, the hotly tipped Ramona and other special guests. With so many great tunes to choose from there are sure to be debates about what Sharleen’s supergroup should playKeep an eye on for more details and to view rehearsal footage in March to see what makes the cut.. Sharleen said of this unique and very special night:

There are few artists that have repeatedly changed the musical landscape but David Bowie is one of them. ‘Hunky Dory’ was really where the Bowie story begins, where he started to become the global artist that we know today. Aside from the incredible singles in ‘Changes’ and ‘Life On Mars’ the album boasts ‘Oh You Pretty Things’ and ‘Kooks’ although every track is a classic in its own right. This is the album that led to ‘Ziggy Stardust’ and ‘Aladdin Sane’, that set the tone for glam rock and kick-started a musical revolution that dominated music for most of the 70’s. I am looking forward to working with our special guests in reinterpreting some of the greatest songs ever written for this year’s JD Set in Glasgow.

The JD set is one of the most anticipated events on the music calendar and has been creating moments of music history for almost ten years. Having featured some of the biggest names and most critically acclaimed acts in UK music from Elbow to The Wombats, The Joy Formidable to Editors, last year’s event pioneered a new approach with the artists choosing a legendary act to honour, creating new versions of classic tracks and unique collaborations between legendary figures such as Tim Burgess and hotly tipped new acts like Dutch Uncles. Taking place at intimate venues, these shows are a rare chance to see rock legends and the next generation of stars up close and personal for free, courtesy of Mr Jack.
This year’s JD Set also includes shows in London, where Tim Wheeler and a supporting cast will honour Pixies and Manchester where MANI will be joined by an illustrious cast to honour The Smiths.

Jack Daniel’s has a long and illustrious history of supporting music. From the creation of the Silver Cornet Band in his home of Lynchburg in 1892 to entertain his community and workers music has been inextricably linked with Jack. Resonating through the history of rock ‘n’ roll from its early beginnings as the rock star drink of choice, Jack Daniel’s have been the creators of not just the JD Set but also Jack’s birthday, a star studded night that has visited both Tennessee and London in recent years and played host to jaw dropping moments such as a Frank Black, Guy Garvey and Richard Hawley in collaboration whilst the likes of Patti Smith, Duane Eddy and countless others have been part of Jack’s ongoing celebration of the power of music to bring people together and create unforgettable moments. Many things have changed since 1892 but Jack Daniel’s love of music and the way they make their whiskey stays the same.
