FOLLOWING a decade on almost continuous tour, twins Charlie and Craig Reed - The Proclaimers - took a well earned rest last year but are eager to hit the road once again and can’t wait for their headline spot at the Hebridean Celtic Festival 2012.

They are just one of the great acts booked to appear at this year’s event as Festival Director, Caroline MacLennan, reveals: “We are delighted to reveal The Proclaimers and The Waterboys will be returning to this year’s festival. Both have been massive crowd-pleasers in the past and we look forward to seeing them again.

“We also have a lot of new acts appearing, and are very pleased to be welcoming Kassidy to the event. We have concentrated on providing a wide range of choice for our festival-goers with exciting acts and a great deal more music than in past years.”
