VIDEO: Dundee’s Kyle Falconer delights hometown crowd with surprise Carnival 56 main stage appearance

Dundee’s own Kyle Falconer surprised fans with an unannounced acoustic set on the Mardi Gras stage of Carnival 56 last night.

After Scots rockers The Fratellis delighted the crowd at the Camperdown Park music festival a “surprise act” was announced ahead of Mark Ronson’s headline show.

The View frontman took to the main stage with only his acoustic guitar to play four of the band’s oldies, much to the delight of the Dundonian audience.
