Running since 1988 and held during September just when the nights are starting to draw in. We all need something to look forward to as autumn approaches.
There will be a full programme of music, with a variety of bands playing in various locations throughout the village. Traditionally, on the Sunday on the fish quay a open air concert is held from 2pm to 6pm. For 2016 we will be Mànran in there debut appearance along with local well known band The Democrats to provide the entertainment.
Mànran are one of the best-known and best-loved Scottish bands on the scene today. The 2011 launch of their debut single, ’Latha Math’ heralded a meteoric rise to the top of the Scottish music world that quickly saw them playing many of the most prestigious festivals in Europe despite having only been in existence a few short months. From then, a multi-award-winning debut album followed as the band set about living up to the hype surrounding their early release while establishing their characteristic sound and distinctive approach to musical arrangement.
If you wish to be involved in the party come along and bring your instrument and join in on Friday or Saturday in the local bars. Impromptu sessions are encouraged. Local talent is showcased. It’s a great weekend.
The programme letting you know what bands are playing where and at what time, will be distributed around the village.
