More acts have been added to the line-up for this year’s main music festival in the Outer Hebrides.

Already, six performers, including headliners KT Tunstall, The Shires and Tide Lines, have been announced.

HebCelt runs from July 17-20 in Stornoway.

The latest names to be added are Irish duo Hudson Taylor, renowned Scottish singer songwriter Kris Drever and newcomers Ferris & Sylvester, from London.

Hudson Taylor comprise brothers Harry and Alfie Hudson-Taylor who have been growing their fanbase out of Ireland and have recently completed a US tour, a sold-out, six-night show in Dublin and supported Hozier on the US leg of his 2018 tour.

The pair found fame after a YouTube video of them busking on Dublin’s Grafton Street went viral. Since then their captivating folk-pop songs have earned them a growing reputation and following, with online videos attracting millions of viewers.

The London-based songwriting duo Issy Ferris and Archie Sylvester formed in 2017, having played the same venue for six months without performing together and are now being tipped for success.

Among the other acts announced today are JigJam, an Irish multi-award-winning quartet who blend traditional Irish music with Bluegrass and Americana in a genre known as I-Grass.
