Legends tell of the myth that one or more members of the band are actually shaved Sasquatch

Which legend (non-musical!) would you have appear on stage with you and what song would you play with them?

Michigan dog-man  and 5678 by Steps

There have been a few musical legends play Belladrum over the years which performance would you most like the opportunity to see again?

How are you preparing for your Belladrum performance, what are your plans after you have played?

Relaxing and enjoying the moment

If your set only consisted of three songs and one extra cover, which ones would they be and why?

Darkness, Gravitate, Pick yourself up and our cover would be If I go, I’m goin’ by Gregory Alan Isakov

And a wee bit of festival madness…

Who’d win a fight between Nessie and Godzilla?


You’re out for a few drinks, what other artist that you know, would turn it in to a legendary night?

We’ve already had a couple of legendary nights with Edgar Road

Is Nessie real?


What would you rather fight, a unicorn the size of Nessie or 20 unicorn sized Nessies?

20 unicorn sized Nessies because more cuddles

What is your favourite urban legend?


If you had to form a 4 piece band from legendary creatures what instrument would each play and why? Also what would you call the Mythical band?

The Kraken on Keys. The Grey man of Ben Macdhui on tenor sax. Man bear pig on guitars. The nuckelavee on the Hurdy Gurdy. MMCC at the Liberum dolor vulgares tempus on XXX/VIII/MMXXII
