Calling all trad music talent!
This year our Fringe Committee has piggybacked on the expertise of the traditional music school and Argyll Ceilidh Trail to suggest performers who would be interested in taking part in the Outdoor Showcase. This participants were selected during the Easter break at the Feisean na Ghaidheal by their organisers. Some of the individuals were selected to participate in the Celidh Trail from this process at the auditions and were then asked by to perform at the Highlands and Island Festival as a precursor to this experience. This line up will provide good calibre entertainment for the venue and for the live broadcast. This selection of talent is a fantastic way of showing off our local talent
All the performers are part of the traditional music school and/or are studying traditional music or as in the case of Neon Sheba will add some variety to the line up. The Showcase is an opportunity for them to perform to a wider public audience.
We are now on the hunt for fresh faced talent to fill in the small open mic slots between the acts to give new comers the chance to be heard
