The Belladrum 2014 announcements keep coming as the Potting Shed line-up has been announced. This year the Potting Shed welcomes back some familiar faces along with some brand new talent from The Highlands and Worldwide.

The full line-up includes names such as; Red Pine Timber Company; Robbie Fulks; The Federals, Don Roots & Cheroots Cigarbox Revue; Hungerhoff & The Wild Roots; Mr Moon & The Thieving Gypsy Ba*%!rds; Sienna; and Potting Shed favourites Ballachulish Hellhounds to name but a few.

Nairn based The Kitty Black Band have been added to the bill and promise to bring a touch of heavy metal to the festival. In stark contrast The New Madrid add a touch of Scots Country Rock showing the interesting range of music available on the stage.

Ever since I could understand it, I have been fascinated by the English language. It connects us, yet is also a key factor in defining us all as individuals. Combining my interest in journalism and my passion for music had always been something of a dream for me. I spent much of my teenage years travelling round the country to go to gigs, then would write up short pieces to be kept in a scrapbook of memories. Since being given the opportunity to start writing for Inverness Gigs around six months ago, I have developed my skills and passion further. I have interviewed some of Scotland’s up and coming artists, I was part of the team providing extensive coverage of this year’s Belladrum festival, I regularly attend gigs around the local area - helping to provide support to the many high quality bands around, as well as having the opportunity to review some of the higher profile shows.
