The Sruighlea Sessions are back for a 3rd year with folk icon Dougie MacLean as our headliner.
“Dougie MacLean is Scotland's pre-eminent singer-songwriter and a national musical treasure” (SingOut USA) who has developed a unique blend of lyrical, 'roots based' songwriting and instrumental composition.
He is internationally renowned for his song 'Caledonia', music for 'Last of the Mohicans' and inspired performances.
His songs have been covered by Paolo Nutini, Amy MacDonald, Ronan Keating, Mary Black, Frankie Miller, Cara Dillon, Kathy Mattea and many other top performers. He has received two prestigious Tartan Clef Awards, a place in the Scottish Music Hall of Fame, a Lifetime Achievement Award from BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and an OBE!
The 2019 Sruighlea Sessions line up includes the fantastic Brina, the voice of World Roots Reggae Music from Jamaica; Scotland’s greatest busker, Matthew Gibb who performed at Stirling’s Hogmanay event in 2017; the up and coming Gordon James and the Power with an indie vibe hailing from Speyside, the whisky capital of Scotland and Stirling's very own Greig Taylor Blues Band who is one the UK’s finest male vocalists with his powerful rock/soul.
You can also enjoy Scottish street food vendors and craft beer bars who are on site, serving you some of Scotland's best Scottish produce.
Eat out; drink out; chill out; listen out and enjoy a warm summer evening from 18:00 at The Sruighlea Sessions at Stirling Sports Village.
Please note photos and filming will be taken throughout the Festival. Please advise at the time if you do not wish to be included.
