Runrig have announced some of the acts to play the two day Party on the Moor on the 9th and 10th of August.

Heading up the announcement are two local bands, as Rory MacDonald, one of Runrig’s founding members explained “As a Highland band, we are incredibly proud of our roots and wanted to give local bands and those of a similar genre the opportunity to perform at what will be a very special celebration for us.” The two bands in question are Scooty and the Skyhooks and traditional music group, Gizzen Briggs.

Also part of the announcement is Grammy Nominee/Brit Award Winner Sharon Corr ,the popular Gaelic/English 6 piece  Mànran and Glasgow based Washington Irving, (you can read our most recent review of them.)

The festivities also include a massive ceilidh on Friday 9 August with camping in the Showground ahead of the concert on the Saturday night.

Tickets for the Runrig Anniversary concert start at £45. There are also travel options for fans travelling from Glasgow, Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Perth.

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
