If you don’t know who the Whisky River Band is, for the love of the little man or woman find out (best click here). The lead singer is Kris Douglas, who was kind enough to review 2011 for us….

What’s your involvement in the music scene?

I am the singer/guitarist for The Whisky River Band.

How has 2011 been for you musically?

Its been amazing, we have had some great opportunities to play some great shows.

What was the best local act this year and why?

Its to hard to call. The highlands has such a great scene and its so diverse as well from electronic to metal, its been fun being apart of it, but if I had to choose it would be The Mighty LJP, they are always on point.

What was the best non-local act you have seen this year?

For me it was C.W Stoneking at Belladrum he was sensational as was his band

What was your favourite music experience this year?

Getting to play Belladrum. Its such a good festival and getting to be apart it was fantastic.

What do you want from Santa?
