Multi award-winning band, Mànran, will play in Portree on New Year's Day.

The band will be heading to the Skye Gathering Hall on Wednesday 1 January as part of BBC Alba's Hogmanay Show, Cèilidh Na Bliadhn' Ùire, aired live on the channel this New Year.

2020 will mark ten years at the heart of the Scottish Traditional music scene for the folk supergroup. Having been in high demand as a live act across the world with shows in over 30 countries, Mànran are looking forward to playing to Portree audiences in January.

Mànran will celebrate their anniversary year with the unveiling of two new band members in the shape of Gaelic songstress, Kim Carnie, and guitar-maestro, Aidan Moodie. This exciting new line-up will be unveiled for the first time during their much-anticipated festive tour.

Joining Mànran for this unmissable night of music will be long-time friends of the band, Skerryvore.


Mànran's accordion player and founding member, Gary Innes, said: "We're really looking forward to playing Portree and to see fans old and new at the Skye Gathering Hall join us for a fantastic night of live music during the festive period. It's been an amazing couple of years for the band and we can't wait to celebrate our 10th year in style in 2020."
