Line Up

Gig at the Gathering

Friday 26th August 2022


From a humble beginning in the Scottish Highlands & Islands, Hò-rò have become a force to reckon with in the Scottish music scene. This group has held their audience spellbound with their energetic performances, musical tune arrangements everywhere they perform in Scotland. The group released their debut album in the summer of 2016, and the acceptance has been remarkable with colossal success recorded in album sales.

With a line-up that features bagpipes, border pipes, accordion, fiddle, and whistles; musical instruments that are aligned with traditional Highland music combined with the sounds of guitar, keyboards, drums, and bodhran, Hò-rò can play diverse styles and produce a set that features rich musical textures. This instrumental mix is complemented further by both the unbeatable poetry of Gaelic song and the vivid storytelling of the Scots song genre.


Rhuvaal are a young, fun and energetic traditional band based in Argyll, Scotland. Originating as a school ceilidh band in 2015, the band have grown and developed over the past 6 years into a group of enthusiastic young adults who are making a huge impression on the traditional music scene in Scotland. Alongside traditional Scottish music the band also like to perform some well-known crowd-pleasing classics.

Supported by an ever-increasing loyal fanbase, Rhuvaal continue to grow in popularity and experience. In 2020 Rhuvaal released their Debut EP ‘Horizon,’ and are now focussing on writing more of their own music and playing at many more festivals and events.


After successful performances at Cowal Gathering in 2018, we are thrilled The American Rogues are returning.

Featuring musicians from Canada and America, they have drawn favourable comparisons with the likes of Wolfstone and have electrified audiences on three continents for many years and have established themselves as artists with bona fide international acclaim.

They are known for their epic sound that crosses the musical landscape to include jigs, reels, hornpipes, originals, covers, foot stompers and more.  They are guaranteed to bring a lively performance to the Gig at the Gathering.
