Strathpeffer Pavilion announce Three Blind Wolves, Anderson McGinty Webster Ward and Fisher, Donald Macdonald and The Islands and Dr. Wook to play at the venue on Friday the 29th November, 2013.
Three Blind Wolves wowed crowds with tracks such as “Parade” and “Farm With A Pulse” at Belladrum 2013 and at the start of festival season at Brew and the Bog. They have also released Sing Hallelujah For The Old Machine in what has appeared a particularly busy year for the Glasgow based band.
Anderson, McGinty , Webster , Ward and Fisher are another band that keep audiences in awe and whilst, as our reviewer noted that, ” they operate a rotation policy that Rafa Benitez would be proud of” it does nothing to detract from the quality of musicianship on show. They of course had some added attention when they collaborated with Dougie Maclean (who is also playing Strathpeffer soon) on a reworking of “Caledonia”, but the band are certainly from a one trick pony.
4-piece alternative folk group based in Glasgow, Donald Macdonald and the Islands who deliver “lively folk pop” and have been entertaining festivals including Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival, Isle of Wedge, Tiree Music Festival and Sonafest.
The final act on the bill is Dr. Wook, aka Kris Douglas. As frontman of Inverness band The Whiskys. Kris has built up an impressive array of gigs and support slots (from King Charles, Woodenbox and coming in December, Alabama 3 to name but three).
Bringing together a strong array of Scottish talent, Kris Reid, Strathpeffer Pavilion’s newly appointed Programme Development Manager, says;
“Three Blind Wolves are one of Scotland’s most promising breakthrough acts on the scene at the moment. Fresh off the back of their European tour and having recently supported Frightened Rabbit on their UK tour, we’re really excited about their show at the Pavilion.
“AMWWF may well be a mouthful, but don’t let that put you off. This band is a group of hugely talented musicians and is rapidly becoming popular after a number of festival appearances this summer. We’re delighted to have Donald Macdonald & The Islands as part of the line up, especially as the band members are so local to Strathpeffer. Finally but definitely not least, Kris Douglas of Inverness band The Whiskys, AKA Dr. Wook, will open the evening with his new and exciting solo project. Four fantastic artists for only £12, it’s a showcase definitely not to be missed.’’
Strathpeffer Pavilion’s band showcase will take place on Friday 29 November – doors at 7.30 pm. Tickets will go on sale online with WeGotTickets and Ticketweb this Friday (18th October) at 9 am, for £12 plus booking fee.
