LET HEBCELT MUSIC BANISH THE WINTER BLUES

18 Dec 2014

Music fans can replace the winter blues with the sounds of the summer over the New Year period by revisiting the Hebridean Celtic Festival in a series of television specials.

HebCelt, which will mark its 20th anniversary next year, enjoyed another hugely successful year in 2014 with a 14,000-strong audience attending the biggest ever programme of live concerts.

On Hogmanay, BBC Alba is screening a HebCelt highlights programme, featuring Duncan Chisholm, Gordie Mackeeman & His Rhythm Boys, Larkin Poe, and Sean Taylor & Danny Thompson.

Programmes on 1 and 3 January will recapture the performance of Willie Campbell and the Open Day Rotation, while 2014 festival headliners Big Country will feature in shows to be screened on 14 and 17 January.

These shows will repeated later in the year, while further programmes will also feature another 2014 headliner, the Levellers, as well as Cara Dillon, Blue Rose Code, Rura, and We Banjo 3.

HebCelt director Caroline Maclennan said: “BBC Alba is a fantastic supporter of HebCelt and this series of programmes will allow us to look back on another successful summer as we prepare for our milestone 20th anniversary.”

HebCelt will kick off 2015 by being part of Edinburgh’s Hogmanay celebrations. A special ceilidh being held as part of a series of free live gigs in the city’s Old Town on 1 January will include performances by Iain Morrison and Lori Watson, Rura, and the new band Malin featuring Catriona Watt.
