The Stornoway festival, which will be headlined by Texas, Seasick Steve and Tide Lines, takes place between July 13 and July 16.

Joining the famed trio on stage are acts including Admiral Fallow, Elephant Sessions, Mischa MacPherson and Heisk.

Return to normal form following digital offerings

All female folk band Heisk will open proceedings on the main stage as the festival returns to its full billing following digital offerings during 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic.

For Glasgow based alt-folk indie outfit Admiral Fallow, this year’s festival will mark 10 years since their previous performance with crowd pleasers expected among tracks from their new album The Idea of You.

Returning also are Elephant Sessions, who performed at the festival in 2019.

The band, who mark their own milestone in 2022, first exploded onto the scene in 2012 and will perform on the festival’s main stage.

Renowned Gaelic songstress Mischa Macpherson, who hails from the Outer Hebrides, has also been included on the line up, with HebCelt keen to promote local artists.

The spotlight will also shine on seasoned musicians Sean Harrison and Band, and newcomers; alt-pop artist Scott C. Park, and local emerging Gaelic rock artists Balach.

Also joining the growing line-up are: Rusty Shackle, Ryan Young and Jenn Butterworth, Eriska, James Nicol, Conor Fyfe, Nicky Murray and Amy Papiransky.
