Strontian concert to feature top Celtic bands

Issued: 7 Jun 2010

Irish super-band Buille and Scottish festival favourites Daimh visit Lochaber this Saturday in a Tune Up tour which sees a cultural meeting of Celtic music cultural traditions from Scotland, Ireland and Canada in a show set to be both fiery and beautiful.

The tour is a natural extension of an already existing history of collaboration between the two bands which has seen Daimh band member Ross Martin join an extended line up Buille several times and has resulted in two original Buille compositions appearing on the new album by Daimh. This tour takes that already productive collaboration and develops it into a unique live experience which brings two of the most respected high-energy big bands of Celtic music together on one stage for the first time.

The two bands stop off in Strontian on Saturday 12 June to play in the Sunart Centre. Centre Manager and Promoter Eoghan Carmichael said: "This is another fantastic opportunity for the people of Lochaber to see a world class act with the best of Celtic music on their doorstep. We look forward to a sell out crowd."

The concert begins at 8:00pm and tickets £10/£8/£6 are available locally and online at www.thebooth.co.uk
