Skerryvore on at 7.30pm.
Over the last 16 years, Skerryvore have brought their performances to audiences across the globe, from their early days in Scottish West Coast halls and bars, to Festival crowds in USA, Canada, Australia and throughout the UK and Europe. Picking up Scottish traditional music’s ‘Live Act of the Year’ twice on the way – the band’s wide range of influences and talent produce a musically expansive, high energy set that excites and captivates audiences. Their 6 studio albums demonstrate the wide range of influences the individual musicians bring to the mix – a unique fusion of folk, trad, rock and Americana, with even some jazz in there!
In January 2021, Skerryvore were put on to the BBC Radio 2 Playlist for 6 weeks with their song ‘You & I’, with 2 weeks on the prestigious A List. Multiple daily plays, and a great response from the presenters, has seen Skerryvore reach a whole new fanbase. It is extremely rare for a ‘non-mainstream’ independent artist to be placed on the list so the band feel incredibly honoured to have received this recognition.
Sister Sledge on at 9.30pm
With dance floors all over the world set alight with the contagious joy and expression in their music, Sister Sledge is blessed and honoured to have provided the soundtrack to countless lives. Hailing from Philadelphia PA, sisters Debbie, Joni, Kathy and Kim became household names and a symbol of unity with their 1979 world-wide hit and iconic album ‘We are Family’.
The multi-lead vocal group are responsible for some of the biggest dance anthems of all time. Lost in Music, He’s the Greatest Dancer and Thinking of You are universally cherished songs that bring people together in love, life and soulful groove.
