Meet the Team

Gayle Findlay

Festival role
Board Director and Team leader for the ambassadors

How did you get involved in the festival?
I was working in the volunteer centre and Caroline (Maclennan) came in to talk about volunteers. We got talking about festivals and, before I knew it, I was leading the stewards team and it has gone from there!

What makes HebCelt special?
I love being involved in making festivals happen. I’ve been working at festivals for the last 15 years or so in various capacities, but HebCelt is also about being involved in something that is relevant to the community I live in - contributing to something that makes the islands vibrant as well as an excellent range of music!

Best festival memory?
Really hard to say. I think for me it has been building a team of reliable volunteers who work hard to make the festival happen. Or getting to stand next to Jeremy from the Levellers in An Lanntair!

Favourite festival gig?
