The Red Hot Highland Fling 2010 on New Year’s Eve will be the main event of the Hogmanay Party being held in the Northern Meeting Park Inverness.
Due to the bad weather the 2009 The Red Hot Highland Fling was unfortunately cancelled but this year’s event is set on making up for the disappointment. All three of the main acts that were due to appear will be returning to the stage in Inverness with The Red Hot Chilli Pipers topping the bill.
The Red Hot Chilli Pipers due on stage at around 9.45pm will be joined by two of Scotland’s other favourite bands with Blazin’ Fiddles opening the party at 8.30pm and Peatbog Faeries closing the event.
Blazin’ Fiddles were winners of the “Best Folk Band” at the 2006 Scottish Traditional Music Awards with fiddlers Catriona Macdonald, Bruce Macgregor, Allan Henderson and Iain Macfarlane will be joined by Anna Massie on guitar/fiddle and Andy Thorburn on keyboard to form one of the best live acts around today.
The Peatbog Faeries are a celtic fusion band which formed in 1994 and are based on the Isle of Skye, Scotland. Their music embodies many styles and influences, including rock, jazz, electronica, and folk – but their main influence is traditional celtic music. The band’s unique sound is created through a mix of programmed effects and traditional celtic arrangements, played on bagpipes, fiddles, and whistles. They have taken their own individual brand of Scottish tunes to audiences around the world, from European Festivals, to Asia, Africa, America and Australia. Peatbogs won ‘Live Band of the Year 2008′ at the Scottish Traditional Music Awards.
