Belladrum are delighted to announce the addition of one of Scotland’s favourite indie pop acts the irresistible Aberfeldy whose single ‘Summer’s Gone’ can currently be heard on a TV ad for a certain online Bingo company as well as previously featuring on a Diet Coke ad throughout the USA.
Other acts also confirmed include rising Australian stars Howling Bells fresh from supporting Coldplay on their US tour; 2008 Mercury award nominee Rachel Unthank performing with The Unthanks; the acoustic soulful sounds of Jonathan Jeremiah; a touch of bluegrass from The Ballachulish Hellhounds; the massive and melodic sounds of Highland instrumentalists Shutter and finally, putting a modern twist on traditional music, Ullapool’s own Celtic/Drum & Bass superstars Grousebeater Sound System who played their 4th ever gig at Rockness’ Clash Arena to a 5,000 strong crowd earlier this year.
Also on Thursday the 6th of August we have a special fringe event ’Bella on a Boat’ featuring Pearl and the Puppets. This will be a special intimate show on the Royal Scot cruiser sailing down Loch Ness. What better way to start your festival than a relaxing journey at one of the most beautiful locations in the world. Further information and tickets are available from www.seetickets.com or from The Ironworks Music Venue in Inverness.
