Music students from the Highlands will be showcasing their talents in Inverness next month.
Bands from Fort William in Lochaber and Alness in Easter Ross have been invited to perform as part of a University of the Highlands and Islands (UHI) concert at Madhatters on Tuesday June 7.
Savannah, a four-piece band made up of students from Fort William will deliver a set of original soft rock songs and covers.
Vocalist Sarah Whyton said: “We are really looking forward to performing as part of XpoNorth and showcasing the songs we have written as part of our HNC at West Highland College UHI.
“It’s great to get the opportunity to perform at an event like this and we’re excited to hear the other bands too.”
Alness-based Dead Zebras, a five-piece band of students studying HNC music performance formed in 2015, will perform a set of original rock songs and covers.
They will be joined by modern trad band Wing It, which will play original songs and instrumental pieces in an alternative rock style with jazz elements and a Scottish twist.
Iona Matheson, of Wing It, said they were excited and honoured to be taking part in the concert.
She said: “It’s a very reputable event so it’s a fantastic opportunity for us and one that we have been rehearsing hard for all year.
“It’ll be a great start to our summer, we can’t wait.”
The university’s gig will take place from 8pm on the eve of XpoNorth, Scotland’s leading creative industries festival.
The two-day event attracts industry experts from the worlds of music, screen, broadcast, game development, writing, publishing, design, textiles, fashion and craft.
