The first Cèilidh Trail project, established by Fèisean in 1999, was designed to help teenage musicians develop their performance skills and to create a vibrant traditional music entertainment programme in the Highlands.

Join us on Sat 30th July for a fantastic night of music performed by some of Lochaber's up and coming young musicians. 

Knoydart Games Ceilidh ft. Glenfinnan Ceilidh Band

Saturday 6th August 2022

GCB.jpg

West Lochaber has always been fertile ground for attracting and nurturing traditional talent and this grouping of musical giants is testament to that. All based in or near Glenfinnan village, the Ceilidh Band members include stalwarts from the traditional music world who are as at home playing large concert venues as intimate bothy cèilidhs.

 

On fiddle is Iain MacFarlane (Blazin’ Fiddles), Colm O’Rua (Daimh) on banjo, Iain MacMaster on accordion and Ingrid Henderson (Cliar) on piano. Formed for the sheer fun of playing good music together their unique blend of West Coast dance music will get your toes tapping.

Valtos

Saturday 27th August 2022

Valtos 1.jpg

Valtos are an ‘Electronic-Traditional’ duo comprised of Isle of Skye based Martyn MacDonald and Daniel Docherty. 

With their early remixes of the Peatbog Faeries, Niteworks, Lapywng, and Project Smok showcasing both the adaptability and variety in their sound, Valtos are seeking to create something both new and vibrant.

Finding inspiration in both the traditional music and breathtaking beauty of their home, the debut Valtos album will release in spring 2022.

Ryan Young brings new and exciting ideas to traditional Scottish music, receiving international praise for his spell-binding interpretations on the fiddle. His debut album was recorded with four time GRAMMY winner Jesse Lewis and launched at Feakle Traditional Music Festival in County Clare, accompanied by renowned guitarist, Dennis Cahill. Focussing on traditional Scottish music, Ryan brings new life to very old, often forgotten tunes by playing them in his own unique way. His fiddle playing is brimming with fresh melodic ideas, an uplifting rhythmic drive and a great depth of dynamics and precision. His sound is very distinctive and takes the listener on an emotional and adventurous journey in any performance.

Meclir

Saturday 15th October 2022

thumbnail_MecLirLiveNew.jpg

This bold and exuberant Isle of Man/Glasgow based band has a stellar line-up, consisting of virtuosic Manx fiddle player Tomas Callister (Ímar), along with fellow Manx musicians Adam Rhodes on bouzouki (Ímar), David Kilgallon on keyboard (Chronicles), and Scotland’s Greg Barry on drums (Elephant Sessions). They have spent the last three years quietly writing and recording new material for what is their first full length album, Livewire, released in December 2020. Well known for their tight, lightning fast playing and huge sound, if you strip back the synths, drums and bass, you will find at the core of these complex (and often verging-on outrageous!) arrangements a set of trad tunes that would be accepted by even the most traditional of session players. That being said, add everything back into the mix and you'll experience something difficult to classify other than simply 'Mec Lir'.
