Carnivale, the singer song writer showcase hosted at The Bothy, Hootananny, moves to a weekly slot for July and August.
The format has been running since November and is influenced by the concept championed by The Bedford in London. Previous Carnivale nights have seen the likes of Miss Irenie Rose, Meeshelle, Iain McLaughlin and Gorman take to the stage.
Music programmer Steve Robertson said “It’s fantastic that Carnivale is making the step from a monthly acoustic night to a weekly night for the summer, our July program features some more established local names such as Iain McLaughlin and Rory Baldwin whilst also casting a light on younger acts such as Emily Mackinnon and Hannah Finlayson whilst bringing acts from outside the area such as Iain Macdonald from the Isle of Lewis and Nathan Mellis originally from Inverness now living in Aberdeen.”
