Ceilidh and dance with Fergie MacDonald, Huradal and Feis air an Oir.
Huradal brings together four traditional young musicians and dancers from across Scotland in a dynamic ensemble which showcases the rhythmical links between puirt-à-beul (Gaelic mouth music) and step dance. Dancers Sophie Stephenson and Mari Britton are joined by Mòd Gold Medalist Eilidh Munro (clàrsach/vocals) and Robbie Greig (fiddle/guitar).
Fergie Macdonald formed his very first band in 1955 and so celebrates his 60th Anniversary with Blas! Fergie is credited with introducing ceilidh music to the world, with radio and television performances and 35 albums. In 2014, Fergie's song "The Shinty Referee" reached number 1 in the World iTunes Charts. The first traditional music artist in Scotland to do so.
