B*Witched singer Lindsay Armaou has told of her excitement ahead of a special homecoming gig this summer.

The C’est la Vie star vowed the Irish girl band will take to the stage in their iconic double-denim outfits at Craic by the Creek in Greater Manchester next month (July).

Lindsay, who has lived in Manchester for the past 10 years, can’t wait to headline the three-day Irish & country festival from July 19-21 after the band’s reunion that has seen them ride a second wave of stardom.

She said: “Everytime we’re on tour and play Manchester, the audience are always so loud and amazing, and just so up for it.

“We’ve always had a really warm reception here, which is really nice especially now I’ve lived here for nearly a decade, so it really feels like home.”

B*Witched, who shot to fame in the 90s and reunited last year, have kicked off their summer festival tour by reviving their famous double denim look which has sparked a new wave of fans.

Lindsay said: “I’d like to think we had something to do with that look being popular again, but I don’t know.

“It’s incredible how much denim people have in their wardrobes now, it’s literally everyone and it’s great to see.”

Craic By The Creek was launched in 2020 by a trio of second-generation Irish musicians to support the artist community through the pandemic and provide a place for next-generation Irish to connect with their roots.

It was set up at Whitebottom Farm in Stockport, Greater Manchester, because bosses were fed-up of playing amazing St Patrick’s Day gigs in terrible weather.

Blame it on the Weatherman singer Lindsay said: “It’s such a great idea.

“We always gig around St Paddy’s Day, and it’s not only always raining but absolutely freezing.

“I’m so glad there are events like this spreading awareness of Irish culture beyond St Paddy’s Day.

“Music is such a huge part of Irish culture, and it reaches far and wide throughout the world in pop music and other genres”.

Lindsay revealed the band are loving being back together to celebrate 25 years since they formed.

She said: “It’s very different and I’m really enjoying the lack of pressure this time around.

“We were so young the first time, and new to the business, so we just did what we were told.

“But now we just get together to do our show and enjoy having a girls’ weekend.

“We’re not taking anything too seriously and we’re just enjoying life.”
