Sandra Macbeth & Friends @ Hootananny
Jul 2 @ 9:30 pm

Sandra MacBeth is a wild highlander based in Edinburgh who has clocked up the music miles sharing the stage with such acts as Pink, KT Tunstall, The Proclaimers, Eddi Reader, Horse, swapped guitars with Mumford and sons, and most recently performing at the Usher Hall for his Holiness the Dalai Lama.

With an organic rootsy style, honest and rich vocals and a heavy acoustic Guitar style, Sandra wrangles with life and musically gravitates to the obscure; her songs are autobiographical, observational and sometimes tongue-in-cheek.

Hailing from the small village of Glenelg in the Scottish Highlands, MacBeth has been performing from the age of ten, whether singing, playing guitar or bagpipes, which was her first instrument and second great love after her guitar. Sandra’s early career saw her in numerous bands both more traditional and rootsy, she regularly performed on stages small and large throughout the whirlwind of her twenties.

Hò-rò @ Hootananny
Jul 15 @ 9:30 pm

Hò-rò: A phrase used as a movement in playing music before the development of written music; a form of “canntaireachd”.

 A young group incorporating new, innovative ideas from our own unique experiences and influences from our very own, cultural Scottish Trad music. Although the foundations of their music are to their national roots, they bring many styles and genres of music into their band: traditional Gaelic songs, their own material, Scottish tunes and they may even surprise you with a few tracks that you may recognize!

RNW MUSIC Presents – The Broken Ravens @ Hootananny
Jul 15 @ 9:30 pm – Jul 16 @ 3:00 am

The Broken Ravens

With an uncompromising and take no prisoners attitude to music, The Broken Ravens, off the recent success of their XPONorth performance and in preparation for performing in Los Angeles’ Whisky A Go-Go in November, are coming to the Highland Capital to play Mad Hatters.
“A HEADBANGING, FOOT STOMPING, RIP ROARING, FIREBALL OF FUZZ”, the solid back bone of musical content and masterful playing by the band, coupled with anarchic frontman Toby Michaels is something you need to experience live.

“The Broken Ravens – probably the best rock band you’ve never heard of … yet.

Outstandingly prolific, artistically gifted, endlessly ambitious, ceaselessly motivated and musically magnetising, the Ravens have crafted their new songs and signature sounds”
– New Rock Times
