What’s on at Hootananny and Mad Hatters
Pons Aelius are an ambitious young instrumental sextet exploring the traditional and contemporary folk musics of Britain and beyond. Having played together in various line-ups for some time, the six decided to consolidate all of their projects into one easy to manage group in mid 2014 – and haven’t looked back since! With bold arrangements and an arsenal of instruments, the band meld age-old traditions with a fresh and innovative attitude.
RETRO NIGHT – LAST FRIDAY OF THE MONTH!
Retro Singer Heidi Munro
Drag Queen Act

Ten piece band Dancing with Sharks is the big sound of dancing in the north.
Blending the big band sound with a bit of rock gives a high tempo groove that gets you dancing. Our wonderful vocalists Pete McKie and Catriona Sutherland give their talent and enthusiasm every gig. Adding the timeless virtuosity of Roger Niven on guitar with our rock solid rhythm section and the amazing brass and saxes, ends up with a full sound that simply can’t fail but get you dancing.
Playing from a huge repertoire of classics from Ella Fitzgerald to Amy Winehouse and Sinatra to Freddie Mercury means there are bound to be songs in our set to suit all tastes.
Fraser Maclean and Erik Spence along with a range of guests host the longest running ceilidh in Scotland every Saturday from 2.30 pm – 4.30 pm at Hoots!
