Gig at the Gathering

Friday 29th August 2024


The 2024 acts will be announced and tickets launched next year.


Beinn Lee are a six-piece band from Uist in the Outer Hebrides. 2018 saw the band release their debut album OSGARRA and 2021 sees the release of their anticipated second album, DEÒ.
Described by renowned piper Fred Morrison as “a breath of fresh air”: “the feel of the Uist music runs beautifully throughout the album and the sensitive vocals and top drawer musicianship add up to one of the most exciting musical prospects I have heard in a long
Formed in 2013, the band are rooted in the west coast style of traditional music. The collective inheritance of Gaelic song and west coast pipe music of members Micheal Steele, Pàdruig Morrison, Mairi Therese Gilfedder, James Stewart, Anna Black, and Seoras Lewis provide a very strong Gaelic traditional backbone to their music, but their music of contemporary and self-penned tunes and songs are infused with diverse modern influences. The band have performed at festivals across Scotland, as well as in Belgium, Lorient and supporting Skipinnish at the Barrowland in October 2021 is a particular highlight.
Our new album, Deò, has been two and a half years in the making, so we cannot wait to share our new music with you all.
We recorded at Black Bay studio in Great Bernera with the help, once again of Ross B Wilson. Deò is a mixture of our own compositions and songs as well as many of our own favourites that we have been playing together over the years!


Rhuvaal are a young, energetic traditional band based in Argyll, Scotland. Originating in 2015, the band have grown and developed over the past 8 years into a group of enthusiastic young adults who are starting to make an impression on the traditional music scene in Scotland.

Supported by an ever increasing loyal fanbase, Rhuvaal continues to grow in popularity and experience. After an amazing year of festivals in 2022 including Tiree Music Festival, Cowal Highland Gathering and their first ever appearance overseas at Triskell Celtic Festival in Italy, the band are continuing to write and arrange new material in preparation for a busy 2023.


Trávee are a new trad/folk band storming up the west coast music scene in 2023, formerly with some members of “Buddha & the Band” Trávee members are a collection of Tiree & Uist and they are focusing on writing their own material, both tunes and songs with keeping to the tradition of the west coast with upbeat and modern twist.

2023 will see them release their first single along with an album so follow them on social media platforms to keep updated on this.
