An Lanntair is delighted to welcome back Willie Campbell and friends in what promises to be another spectacular night of entertainment to bring in the New Year.

Following the success of last year’s sell out show at the Stornoway arts centre, which showcased the huge variety of local musical talent, Willie Campbell will once more take to the stage with a new line up of guest musicians for an exclusive one off performance.

An Lanntair’s Hogmanay celebrations are supported as part of Scotland’s Winter Festivals, a programme of events funded by Scottish Government and managed by VisitScotland.

Willie, along with members of his band The Open Day Rotation, will be joined by Colin MacLeod, Jane Hepburn, and Iain “Spanish” Mackay, and tickets for this unique event are now much sought after.

Alex Macdonald, An Lanntair’s Head of Performing Arts and the creator of Bliadhna Mhath Ur! said: “We are really grateful to the Winter Festivals programme for the continued support of our

Hogmanay celebrations.

“New Year is a time for people to return to the islands and be with family, and we have been really pleased at the community’s response to us offering them activities which help us celebrate it together.”

And continuing the theme of returning home for New Year, piper James Mackenzie will be heading to Lewis as part of traditional band Breabach, who can also be seen at An Lanntair on Saturday 2nd January.
