Tweed are an exciting ceilidh band, the lively ska rythms from Sam, Bluegrass fiddling from Duncan and solid bass and melody from Graeme, creates a full and powerful sound that can move anyone. 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.
Gleadhraich are a celtic rock band formed in Carnoustie, Angus in 2010 while students at school. The band is made up of Craig Weir (Bagpipes/ Vocals), Ross White (Guitar/ Vocals), Paul Weir (Percussion) and Graeme Ritchie (Bass Guitar) with a live addition of a backing band which includes saxophone, trombone, accordion, keyboard and fiddle. The band released their latest record, ‘Definition’ which was well received with Jim Gellatly including the track, ‘Face Palm’ in a list for the Scottish Sun of the top tracks released in the country that month as well as Piping Today describing the record as “putting it’s own stamp on the sub sub-genre” of celtic rock. The band has performed at a variety of events across the UK from headline shows to festival performances including at Scotland’s prestigious Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival. This has led to the band sharing stages with acts such as Skerryvore, Donnie Munro, Twin Atlantic, AC/DC, The Fratellis and Peatbog Faeries.
The Victor Pope Band
The Victor Pope Band were formed at the end of 2012 from the remains of Ginger and the Tramp, Sabai and The Woods. So in a way they're a kind of supergroup. They have been described as quality quirky pop punk, post-punk and sounding a little bit like Jonathan Richman. But probably best way to describe them as Nerd Rock. The real question remains, however, who is Victor Pope...?
Swamp River are an Edinburgh & London based Swamp Rock, Roots and Blues based band comprising road-tested veterans of the UK and international music scene, to appreciate the timeless music of John Fogerty and Creedence Clearwater Revival. Chris Hargrave (Vocals, Guitar) and Rod Kennard (Bass, Vocals) have been playing gigs in Norway since the 1980s. Sandy Tweeddale(Guitars, Vocals) and Rod are colleagues in Blues 'n' Trouble, and together have backed such artists as James Burton, Maggie Bell, and Otis Grand - and Willy has been their long time collaborator in a number of side projects. Now they unite to celebrate their mutual love of the extraordinary, and sometimes underappreciated, work of John Fogerty and Creedence Clearwater Revival
