The Stumblers – Kilmarhock – Listen Again 
Niall O’Flaherty/ Stevie Smuith/ Taylor Buntain/ Glen Robertson / Ruaraidh Quinn
The Stumblers are a modern Scottish Folk Bandk, combining the revered ancestry of Celtic melodies with the lyrical substance of protest-era folk, sprinkled it with the classic instrumentation of gluegrass, and deliver it all with the passion and fire of punk rock.   Nothing can be written to accurately convey the reality of the band in full flow. Their debut album ‘Remarkably Simple For Complex Individuals’ is out now!




Footern’ Aboot – Buckie   – Listen Again 
Calum Jones /Lewis Wiles/ Macaulay Ross/ Rowan Duncan
‘We are Footerin’ Aboot. An up and coming young band of lively lads from Moray.
We perform a jumping upbeat set of traditional tunes, original songs and compositions and the odd popular cover given a celtic twist.  2016 has seen us perform at events such as Speyfest, Belladrum and the Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festivals as well as weddings, functions and fundraisers from Grantown to the Black Isle. With Macaulay joining the band earlier this year our performance has moved to the next level and we hope 2017 will see us go onward and upward, perform at more festivals and events, release our debut single  and take our music further afield’.
