Aberfeldy festival highlights

ABERFELDY FESTIVAL GEARS UP FOR 8TH YEAR

--Idlewild frontman and Lost Map impresario top the bill--

Scotland's finest, and possibly smallest, boutique festival is back with what might just be its best line-up yet.

Idlewild singer-turned-folk-trouabdeur Roddy Woomble and Shamanic Eigg resident Johnny Lynch a.k.a. Pictish Trail will headline this years event on November 3&4.

Also on the bill are: 

- Current BBC 6 Music favourite Siobhan Wilson, whose Song, by Toad album There Are No Saints is getting rave reviews

- SAY Award winner Kathryn Joseph, making a welcome return after her spellbinding performance two years ago

- Modern Studies, featuring the vocal talents of Rob St. John and Emily Scott

- Fair Mothers, the project of musician Kevin Allan, featuring vocals by Kathryn Joseph

- Edinburgh-based multi-national psychedelic shoegazers Plastic Animals
- Raw, up and coming singer-songwriter Emme Woods

Festival organiser Ryan Hannigan said:

"Aberfeldy's setting and size makes it one of the quirkiest, most exclusive dates on the festival calendar. It still feels a secret and only spread by word of mouth.

"To say we're delighted with this year's bill is an understatement - it feels like a who's who of exciting and innovative Scottish musicians and we can't wait for November.

"Add in great food and drink, a fine atmosphere and the wonders of autumnal Perthshire and you have a cocktail for a memorable weekend."
