On Wednesday 3rd June we were delighted to perform at BBC at the Quay. It was a fantastic outdoor stage built specifically for the new festival which was held right outside BBC Scotland in Glasgow. The day started with a rather chilly soundcheck. Then Claire and Tina went on to do an interview with Linda Macleod for BBC Alba. The girls were asked all sorts of questions about the band. We’ll keep you posted when it will be broadcast.
The chilly breeze calmed down for the gig at night and the weather was fantastic for it. We were playing at the same time as the lovely sunset. We performed alongside some fantastic Scottish musicians and bands. First up were Dàimh, followed by a set from us, then Finlay MacDonald and Ross Martin, RURA and the Maeve MacKinnon Band.
The night was filmed for BBC Alba and it’s still available to watch on iPlayer for a few more weeks; http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b05xgg9m/ceol-air-abhainn-chluaidh
