Tiree Music Festival - line-up

Tiree Music Festival (18-20 July) is releasing 100 last chance tickets to celebrate the announcement of Calmac Live Lounge, a new acoustic stage for the 2014 festival.

Sponsored by award-winning ferry operator Caledonian MacBrayne (CalMac), the stage will host acoustic performances from Scotland’s most established songwriters including Dougie McLean and Roddy Woomble.  Tickets will be available from Friday 30 May at 9am at https://shop.ticketscript.com/channel/web2/start-order/rid/QWNXAX4V/language/en

Tickets for Scotland’s Best Small Festival sold out long before the stellar line-up, which includes Eddi Reader, Julie Fowlis, Sharon Shannon Big Band, Peatbog Faeries and Roddy Woomble & Band, was even announced. This is the last opportunity for fans to secure their place at the festival which keeps going from strength to strength.  Having won four major event awards in 2013 and added an extra day for 2014, the new stage is the latest development for TMF.

As well as performances from established acts, Calmac Live Lounge will host acoustic sets from up and coming singer- songwriters, such Alec Dalglish, Sorren MacLean and Zoe Bestel.   The stage will also put on interactive music workshops and Ulpan Gaelic lessons for the whole family to get involved in.

This year’s festival will feature three stages Cairn Capital Main Stage, Tiree Trust Tent and Stage which will sit alongside the Calmac Live Lounge.

Says festival Director Daniel Gillespie “Festival goers are in for a real treat with the Calmac Live Lounge, as the stripped down performances set against the beautiful backdrop of Tiree is guaranteed to offer an unrivalled atmosphere and expect some impromptu collaborations between acts as well.

“We would like to thank CalMac, Cairn Capital and Tiree Trust for their support and are delighted to offer another 100 fans the chance to be at TMF.  2014 really is shaping up to be our best festival ever and we still have more to announce including our TMF Unsigned shortlist and then winner.”

Cathy Craig, Commercial Director at CalMac, said: “The Tiree Music Festival is one of the biggest events in our area.  CalMac plays a huge part in getting both festival goers and the musicians themselves to this highly popular event and this year we decided to go one step further and raise our profile at the festival by sponsoring this stage at which the winner of our CalMac Culture singer/songwriter competition will perform.”

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!
