A dynamic tour between two bands will take them to Skye.
Three of Scotland's finest Gaelic singers: Eilidh Cormack; Ellen MacDonald and Ceitlin L R Smith joined forces in 2016 to create the sound of Sian, a project originally developed for the Blas Festival. With a powerful collective sound, representing their wealth of individual experience, the band have gone on to perform at the SSE Hydro and Glasgow Royal Concert Hall among many other venues across Scotland, and mostly recently featured on Niteworks' single 'Air Fàir an Là', released in July 2018.
Instrumental trio Hecla will perform alongside Sian, bringing fresh and thrilling arrangements of traditional tunes on pipes, fiddle, flute and guitar. Hecla was formed at Benbecula College UHI and released their debut EP in January 2017. Since then, the band has performed at a range of festivals including HebCelt, Lorient and Celtic Connections as well as being featured on programmes for BBC Alba and BBC Radio Scotland.
Hecla and Sian will be touring Skye, as well as Barra, South Uist, North Uist and Lewis - where the audiences can expect a programme of music brimming with repertoire from the Gaelic song, piping and fiddle traditions.
The Skye performance will take place on November 24 at An Crùbh. For singer, Eilidh Cormack, this gig will be a home tour. Tickets will be on sale from Monday 8 October and can be purchased here and at the venue itself.
