This summer’s Hebridean Celtic Festival (HebCelt) will showcase a unique musical collaboration to mark the centenary of the end of World War I.
According to organisers, it will feature “wartime musical memories” at Stornoway’s An Lanntair arts centre as part of the Between Islands series.
Orkney’s Saltfishforty fiddler Douglas Montgomery and guitarist Brian Cromarty will present the show on the opening night of the four day festival.
They will be joined by singers Jenny Keldie from Shetland, Linda Macleod from North Uist, and Kathleen MacInnes from South Uist.
The set list will be made up of music and songs linked to that period with each one originating from the islands.
Alex Macdonald, head of performing arts and cinema at An Lanntair, said: “The beauty of Between Islands is that it both showcases the music and song of the islands collectively and also offers an opportunity for artists to work together for the first time.”
HebCelt runs from July 18 – 21 will attract some of the biggest names in traditional and contemporary music from across the world.
It will be headlined by Deacon Blue, The Fratellis, Eddie Reader and Roddy Woomble.
On Thursday night Scottish fiddler Alasdair Fraser and Californian cellist Natalie Hass will take to the stage.
In a specially-commissioned project by HebCelt, Gaelic singers from Lewis under the name Blasta will perform on Friday.
On stage on Saturday night will be the renowned Gaelic singer Arthur Cormack with his first solo album in 30 years.
