Scottish rock legends Texas will headline the award-winning Hebridean Celtic Festival’s 25th anniversary celebration next summer.

The Glasgow band, whose career has spanned more than three decades, are the first act to be unveiled for the 2020 HebCelt which will run from July 15-18 in Lewis and Harris.

They will top the bill on the Friday night on their first visit to HebCelt. More acts will be announced in the coming weeks.

Texas lead singer Sharleen Spiteri said: “We are thrilled to be making our Hebridean Celtic Festival debut in its 25th year.

“HebCelt is renowned as one of Europe’s leading summer festivals and we can’t wait to join in the celebrations for its special anniversary.”

HebCelt director Caroline Maclennan said: “Texas are Scottish rock royalty and a fantastic live band. We are thrilled to announce them as the headliners in what is a very special year for the festival.”

They made their performing debut in 1988 at Dundee University and the following year released their debut album Southside, along with the single I Don’t Want a Lover, which became an international hit.

An independent economic assessment of the 2019 HebCelt showed the festival generated net additional income for the area of nearly £2 million.
