Former Runrig frontman Donnie Munro has spoken of his excitement as he prepares to play at a special gig in Fort William next year.

Folk favourites Manran are celebrating their 10th anniversary year with a two-day concert.

Taking place at the foot of Britain’s tallest mountain, Ben Nevis, Manran: 10 by the Ben will take over the An Aird shinty field.

Following shows in more than 30 different countries, the seven-piece band will return home to host the event on Friday, April 10 and Saturday, April 11.

Donnie Munro will be among those playing on the Saturday night.

He said: “I am absolutely delighted to be sharing this very special occasion with Manran and deeply honoured to have been invited.

“It is hard to believe that Manran have reached their 10th Anniversary Year. These milestones are always worthy of celebration.

“During that time, Manran have established themselves as a truly international act, taking Scottish contemporary music to an international audience and acting as great ambassadors for Scotland’s rich musical and cultural heritage.

“I look forward to what I am sure is going to be a great celebratory event.”

The band, whose members have strong Lochaber connections, will be joined by other musical friends, including Friday night headliners Skerryvore.

Caledonia legend Dougie MacLean will also take to the stage on the first night, as well as folk group Breabach and singer-songwriter Keir Gibson.

Also playing on Saturday are Flook and The Glenfinnan Ceilidh Band.
