Mad Hatters have announced a special Jocktoberfest 2014 warm up gig at Mad Hatters on the 17th of July.
With Jocktoberfest coming in the first weekend of September, and featuring an array of talent including Michael Cassidy, Chris Devotion and the Expectation and The Black Arrows, the event at Mad Hatters will provide a perfect warm up for the festival.
Jocktaster will feature a couple of the bands on the bill for the festival, Dante and The Whiskys (with more to be announced). Edinburgh based, Dante whose tunes were described by our reviewer as “The music itself goes through mood swings, one minute they were treating us to dark and brooding music, the next we were involved in the liveliest ceilidh in town.”.
The Whiskys return from a quiet spell that sees them being announced for Belladrum (again their ‘unplugged’ format),supporting Iain Mclaughlin and the Outsiders in September and most recently announced as support for The Levellers in Wick later this month.
Jocktaster is free entry. Tickets for Jocktoberfest (to be held on the 5th and 6th of September) are priced at £30.00 (free entry for under 13s) and available via www.jocktoberfest.com.
