Music Stars Sing For Independence

Some of Scotland's top musical talent has taken to the stage to urge voters to back independence.

Edinburgh's Usher Hall was a sea of Saltires for a sold out gig with artists including Mogwai, Franz Ferdinand, Amy Macdonald and Frightened Rabbit.

Singer Eddi Reader opened the A Night for Scotland bill, playing her hit Perfect.

She told the audience of almost 3,000 people: "I'm very proud to be Scottish.

"I love all the Yes voters, I love all the No voters too. I love all the No voters so much I want to give them a country.''

Musician Dougie MacLean appeared in a pre-recorded video to lead the audience in a singalong to his much-loved song Caledonia.

Deacon Blue pair Lorraine McIntosh and Ricky Ross - who also hosted the concert - played as McIntoshRoss before a set by Scottish hip hop act Stanley Odd.

Frontman Solareye (aka Dave Hook) said: "The decision that we make isn't just for us, it's for our families, it's for the future, it's for the communities that we live in.''
