Festival role Festival Operations Coordinator 

How did you get involved in the festival? Moved to the Isle of Lewis in January 2014 and wanted to meet new people, so I signed up to be a volunteer at the festival and have volunteered every year since. In 2024 I was appointed as the full time Festival Operations Coordinator, which is my 'Dream Job'! 

What makes HebCelt special? HebCelt is special due to all the volunteers or the Festival Family as they are known. A real mix of people and characters from all walks of life, who come together every year. Its great to catch up with everyone and be part of something that is so special and beneficial to the local community.

Best festival memory? I have so many special memories from over the years, a stand out memory  was being in the pit with Vicky the Green Team lead for Peat & Diesel in 2023. You could actually feel the crowd vibrating from where we were sitting. A very special home turf headline gig and an epitome of 'That's the way we do it in the Western Isles'

Favourite festival gig?  Niteworks in 2023, that set was just phenomenal
