Skara Ceilidh band is a four-piece line-up of fiddle, pipes, guitar and drums. They are accomplished, experienced and professional musicians from Scotland. Each band member tours and performs worldwide with some of the most well-known bands on the Scottish music scene, including, Skipinnish, Breabach, Fat-Suit, James Duncan Mackenzie and Suas. The Skara line-up includes two BBC Young Traditional Musician of the Year Finalists.
The Kintyre Schools Pipe Band will perform at three events across this year’s festival as well as two performances at the Head of the Quay, leading into the Festival Parade.
The 3 events are the Festival Ceilidh Night on Aug 11th, Doon the Green and the Kilkerran Survivors Night on Aug 13th. This will be the band’s first performance on Sunday night since 2016, so it’s a performance not to be missed.
Wee Toon Tellers make for an exciting return to play the main stage at this Festival Ceilidh Night, having performed on every stage at the Mokfest.
The band have promised a set full of songs and tunes from their vast repertoire, which can be heard on their 2 LPs — ‘Jarred and Feathered’ and ‘10 Years Matured.’ We are delighted to have them back in front of a live and hugely appreciative audience again in our 30th year.
