The Old Bridge Inn, Aviemore, host a few Detour favourites for Hogmanay 2014/15 celebrations.

detourDetour, the brain child of Ally McCrae and David Weaver, take over The Old Bridge Inn for two nights of music at New Year.

For Hogmanay the team bring you the Glasgow based Miaoux Miaoux who have been described as ‘synth dream pop’. Play Brew at the Bog 2013 they were described as having “Just the right mix of beats and chilled out trancy tunes to send everyone floating back to their tents and taxis home.”

They will be joined by Hector Bizerk whose reputation for live performances is almost the stuff of legend. In an interview with us last year they explained the plaudits for their live sets by saying “Good inventive music speaks for itself I suppose. We give it everything we’ve got every time we play”. The Hogmanay line up will be the Detour DJs themselves.

New Year’s Day brings another two of Scotland’s hottest acts. Prides debuted at Brew at the Bog in 2013 and have since unleashed their brand of electronica, or “Scotronica” possibly, with an un-relentlessness fervor. Aided of course by an ability to create addictive songs that sound massive in scope.

Fatherson have played on several occasions in the area, most recently at the Ironworks in October although they also played as last minute stand ins for Grandmaster Flash at Belladrum 2014. The band released debut album “I Am An Island” in April; ” If you like indie, rock, anthemic, poetic good music you should 100% check this band out” enthused Rockadia in their five star review.

Tickets for NYE are £18 and for NYD are £15 with both events on from 10pm-2am.Tickets give the Old Bridge Inn a call on 01479 811137. More details on the event via the Detour 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
