They are best-known for their cheery pop tunes, including top ten hit “She’s So Lovely”.
And now, Scouting for Girls will be turning on the charm at an island music event this summer.
Tiree Music Festival last night confirmed that Scouting for Girls will travel to the remote island to headline the ‘Best Small Event in Scotland’ as part of their 10th anniversary year.
It is ten years since the band released their No.1 self-titled album that featured hit singles ‘Heartbeat’ and ‘She’s so Lovely’ – selling over 1 million copies worldwide.
For Tiree, this will be the 8th festival since its formation in 2010 that has seen the festival sell out every year and gain a reputation as one of the friendliest and most unique festivals in the UK.
The festival will be held on the 14th – 16th July once again overlooking the white sands of Crossapol Bay.
Joining Scouting for Girls will be singer-songwriter Dougie MacLean for his second visit to the festival 2014.
Debuting at the festival will be one of Scotland’s new voices Siobhan Miller as well as Irish-Bluegrass sensations Jig Jam fresh from their USA tour.
Festival Director Daniel Gillespie said: “We are delighted to once again bring a world-renowned act to our small magical island and know that the TMF crowd will create an atmosphere like no other. We are also thrilled to welcome back Dougie as he loved his time on the island in 2014 and his performance in the main tent was one that will never be forgotten – it is the one and only time at TMF when you could have heard a pin drop!”
Also starring will be Skipinnish, Skerryvore, Trail West, Gunna Sound, Dun Mor and The Defenders.
There will also be a special first birthday celebration for Tide Lines who performed their first ever gig at TMF 2016 and have gone on to take the Scottish music scene by storm.
All remaining tickets for the festival go on sale this Saturday at noon at www.tireemusicfestival.co.uk
