Shooglenifty are to play The Picture House, Dingwall on the 3rd of May.

Square Shooglenifty on Dock

The 6 piece, launch their UK wide tour with a gig at the Picture House, Dingwall which will see them play Glastonbury at the end of June. Attempts to define Shoogenifty’s sound has earned them the rather intriguing the labels of ‘hypnofolkadelia’ and ‘acid croft’ although it is perhaps the Chicago Tribune’s description of being “…a bit like a jam between the Tannahill Weavers, Phish and The Chemical Brothers” that helps you get the picture?

The band have travelled the world and proudly boast of being the first band ever to incite a stage invasion at Sydney Opera House. So it might not be any surprise that Folk Radio UK concluded their review of the band’s 2012 Celtic Connections gig with “‘part gig, part show, part ceilidh, but most importantly, simply a good night out’? A good night out is rarely as good as this.” So almost perfect for a night out in Dingwall.

For more details of the gig please see The Picture House Dingwall website.

A lifelong passion for music matched with a geeky fascination for social media and websites resulted in the creation of Inverness Gigs back in 2010. The aim of the site is to help promote, support and generally raise awareness of the local music scene.In fairness fifteen years of being a psychiatric nurse never prepared me for the experiences that we have had over the last few years and the evolution of Inverness Gigs has certainly been a steep learning curve.I currently write (less and less), edit and co-ordinate most of the Inverness Gigs activities.Occasionally seen on Twitter, and  LinkedIn, if you want get in touch you can contact me direct at chris@igi.gs
