Calum MacPhail Trio
Aug 9 @ 9:30 pm

calum

Calum is a warm, down-to-earth, young man from the West Coast of Scotland who fell in love with the accordion at a tender age of 7. As a young boy with the desire to learn more, he spent more years learning the rudiments from the best accordionists in the Highlands until he eventually created his unique style. Though he hailed from Fort William, Calum moved to Inverness in 2007 where he strived to focus on his technique.

Calum is an energetic musician who has performed in Italy, Belgium, France, and Germany. Now he is coming to Hootananny for a night that can not be missed!

Free entry.

Hailing from Inverness the capital city of the Scottish Highlands Schiehallion are a Scottish Folk/Ceilidh band who have spent the last number of years both at home and further afield building an impressive ardent fan base, this has culminated in them being deserving of their widely held reputation as a fiery and passionate must see live music act. 

Consisting of founding member Kenny Jamieson Vocals – Guitar & Bodhran, Stuart Mackintosh Accordion, Cy Mutch Cajon & when required Calum MacGillivary on Bag Pipes, Schiehallion are ever present on the live music venue and festival scene.
