Tweed Ceilidh Band
Nov 22 @ 9:30 pm

Tweed

A lively ceilidh band from Inverness and Speyside. The trio have played throughout the UK and Europe, whilst retaining their weekly slot in Aviemore – which has allowed them to flourish and build a great repertoire of entertaining material. Weaving together traditional ceilidh music with funk, ska and toe-tapping beats and anything in between.

Band members Graeme Mackay, Duncan Farquhar, Sam Mcleod bring you a night pumped full with Ceilidh music to keeping you dancing in Inverness’ traditional Scottish bar. A night not to be missed!

Scotch
Nov 22 @ 10:00 pm – Nov 23 @ 12:00 am

Various musical elements merge in a special live show that leaves the boundaries of reality far behind. With their cheerful Folkloric melodies and driving rhythms Scotch guarantees a big feast in every occasion! The cynical lyrics combined with the frank voice of La Smellitia gets the tension on the stage sky high.

Scotch has always had its unique sound and obstinate theatrical interpretations. Some may describe the style of Scotch as Folk Rock, Theatric Punk, Balkan Ska or Celtic Baroque Rock. In the end, all will agree that you have to see a live show to meet the Scotch experience.

Scotch

 

The Dutch band Scotch produces high-energy shows with upbeat melodies on trumpet-fiddle and accordeon, alternated with polyphonic singing on a driving base of drums, bass and guitar. This party folk is equally danceable
played acoustically or fully amplified. The combination of own material with traditional folk songs from every corner of the world is brought straight from the heart and without any restraint. Whether it’s in the streets, at a
club or on the festival floor, you’ll feel only this moment counts.
In the past 10 years, Scotch has played over 500 shows throughout Europe and released five studio albums”

Journey North @ Hootananny
Nov 29 @ 9:30 pm

“This is the music we bring to the table, the food of our hearts, the fruits of our labours”

Drawing on the wide variety of musical experiences in the band, Journey North combine the storytelling traditions of Scottish music with the dynamics of a rock band.

Their love of playing live is clear for anyone to see and no matter the size of venue, if you are in the audience, you are part of the band.

Playing original songs which tell tales of battles, loves, lives and minds lost (and won) you can be sure that toes will be tapped, hands clapped and new friends will be made. You may even shed a tear or two but rest assured you will spend an evening with five mates who all love to play music and who appreciate every single second they get to share that with you.
