Red Hook Rapids are currently look to raise funds for an American adventure.

Ally kick over tracks thumb thumb - Red Hook Rapids need a hand to get to America

The Americana duo (Ally MacLeod and Donald Forbes) have been invited to play in Nashville,Memphis, North Carolina and New York. The opportunity arose through the magic of Facebook when someone from Nashville contacted them offering them a gig. From that point it has grown and they are hoping to also play in Memphis, North Carolina and New York. Quite impressive when you consider that the band formed last year.

However in order to get across the pond, they need to raise some funds and they are asking people to help get involved and support the cause. They are hoping to raise £5000 with a series of enticements depending on the amount that you want to give.

You can read our interview with Ally MacLeod here and more importantly you can find out more, and of course donate, via Sponsume.

A lifelong passion for music matched with a geeky fascination for social media and websites resulted in the creation of Inverness Gigs back in 2010. The aim of the site is to help promote, support and generally raise awareness of the local music scene.In fairness fifteen years of being a psychiatric nurse never prepared me for the experiences that we have had over the last few years and the evolution of Inverness Gigs has certainly been a steep learning curve.I currently write (less and less), edit and co-ordinate most of the Inverness Gigs activities.Occasionally seen on Twitter, and  LinkedIn, if you want get in touch you can contact me direct at
