The Feeling

The first headliner for the seventh Loopallu can now be confirmed as one of the UK’s most successful feel good acts of recent years, The Feeling. They are set to provide one of the greatest sing-a-long sets the festival has ever seen with a back catalogue of hits to choose from including, ‘Never Be Lonely’, ‘Fill My Little World’, ‘Sewn’ and ‘Set My World On Fire’.

Their 3rd album Together We Were Made was released earlier this month and saw the band perform an hour long special for BBC Radio 2 at London’s Mermaid Theatre.

Continuing the sing-a-long theme, and on the back of an extremely successful Highland tour at the start of the year, we welcome the Fratellis frontman Jon Fratelli. As well as playing songs from his new album, expect to hear some of the classic hits that made the Fratellis one of the biggest bands in the UK. Jon’s playing with a full band, including two drummers!

Still ‘Young at Heart’, we’re really pleased to have another set of homegrown heroes, who’ve recently reformed. The Bluebells. With a string of hits to their name, you’ll be able to hear the singing in Stornoway this year!

Finally announcement for the time being, the one band Loopallu wouldn’t be Loopallu without…. Kicking off proceedings, The Ullapool Pipe Band.

About MUSIC NEWS Scotland

MUSIC NEWS Scotland was born 12 years ago when dial up broadband was still around and desktop pc’s ruled. So we did what had been done since 220 AD in China and every month put ink on a printing plate, ran some paper over it and hey presto MNS was published (okay it was a wee bit more involved than that, but the basic principle was the same!) Move on to 2011 with high speed broadband and access to the www everywhere and the future was catching up with us rapidly. The volume of information flowing into MNS HQ was more than our monthly issue could cope with, and more and more Scottish music stories of great value were being spiked (an old press term not a dodgy drink). Reaching our vast number of readers in every conceivable nook and cranny of Scotland has always been a challenge monthly but to do that more often was physically not feasible. So we have doffed oor tam o’ shanter to the future and MNS is now a weekly digital publication, and not only weekly now but twice the number of pages than our old printed friend! Along with our weekly GIGguide and FESTIVALS! supplement we are now producing 72 pages of Scottish music news (and only music news) each and EVERY week:) We remain as true as ever to our launch roots of 8 years ago though - MUSIC NEWS Scotland supports all Scottish bands and performers no matter what style of music you’re involved in. Our aim is to circulate music industry news and to help to raise the profile of musicians and improve communications between genres. To help achieve this copies of MUSIC NEWS Scotland are emailed to key industry contacts throughout the UK. Thank you for your support over the last 8 years and please raise a glass to our digital future with you all. Thanks for your support, The MNS team!
