What’s on at Hootananny and Mad Hatters

For 19 years, Hootananny has been promoting the best grass roots music in Scotland. Mumford and Sons, Sam Fender, Jake Bugg, Dougie Mclean and Skerryvore have all played the venue.

The building is a lovely traditional Victorian Inverness old sweety shop with traditional Scottish music on our ground floor and indie, hiphop,ska and rock upstairs on the Madhatters stage.

The family run business has been awarded Scotland’s Best Live Music Venue 2019 by Scottish Bar and Pub Awards and Best Inverness Pub of the Year, 8 years running, by Inverness City Advertiser. Open daily for pub drinkers, we have a delicious Scottish menu of traditional dishes cooked to perfection from 6 pm.

Ross Hull & Nicky Kirk
May 15 @ 9:30 pm – May 16 @ 12:30 am

3C92C77A-75B3-410B-A242-04F63732253BRoss and Nicky began playing tunes together whilst living on the Isle of South Uist and share a passionate interest in Scottish and Irish music.

Ross hails from North-East Scotland and takes his influence from a wide range of musicians which has left him with a nuanced yet powerful fiddle style, equally comfortable playing a 2/4 March or a fast pipe reel.

Nicky is a founding member of Scottish Folk band Eabhal and grew up playing Irish and Northumbrian music. Now a convert to Gaelic music he has spent the past few years touring with Eabhal, performing his driving guitar style to audiences throughout Europe and beyond.
