Kept away before Christmas due to bad weather and ferry cancellations, top-Scots band Mànran are determined to make it to Lewis this weekend for two performances in the Barvas and Brue Community Centre.
And there are still tickets available for the re-scheduled shows!
Visit Syber Promotions website at www.syberpromotions.com for purchase and more information or buy them on the door.
The re-scheduled shows kick off with the Over 18s gig on Friday, January 10th, at 9pm; with the Family/Under 18s performance on Saturday, January 11th, at 7pm.
As previously arranged, there will be a Maclennan Coaches bus leaving from Stornoway for the Barvas shows, return tickets costing £6 and can be bought at the Syber Promotion website also.
Fresh from a successful tour of America, Mànran boasts one of Lewis’ own talents – Carloway’s Norrie Maciver (vocal, guitar), who is joined by some of the country’s finest young musicians in Gary Innes (accordion, keyboards); Ewen Henderson (fiddle, highland pipes, whistle, vocal); Ryan Murphy (uilleann pipes, wooden flute); Ross Saunders (bass guitar, vocal) and Scot MacKay (drums, percussion).
Since the lads formed in 2010, Mànran has taken the Scottish music scene by storm with an irresistible mix of Gaelic and English songs.
They hit a top-spot on No.29 in the UK Top 40 with Gaelic song ‘Latha Math’ in 2011; and are no strangers to the festival scene either, having performed at festival in Europe – their highlight being Celtica in Italy – and Scotland, including the Hebridean Celtic Festival.
The Barvas gigs will prove a night of incredible and memorable performances – so make sure you don’t miss out!
