JJ Gilmour and Kim Edgar will be among the acts providing support at the Kilmarnock Fair Festival when the event returns to Kilmarnock's Centrestage in July.

Singer songwriter JJ Gilmour will support Brian Kennedy on Saturday, July 7. Gilmour enjoyed success across Europe with the band The Silencers and has more recently turned his hand to writing musicals Dancing Shoes: The George Best Story and The Titanic Boys, about a group of young men who built, sailed and died on the ship, which opens in Belfast this August. JJ Gilmour's third album "Slocomotion" will be released in July 2012. Brian Kennedy is also supported by local musician Robbie Dale.

Kim Edgar, Edinburgh based pianist and song writer, will support pop duo Hue and Cry on Thursday, July 5.
