Video - Final flourish to weekend’s festivities at Grand Concert

On Saturday evening a packed out Lewis Sports Centre in Stornoway provided the backdrop to a showcase concert for Homecoming year.

The event was part of the festivities for Tattoo Hebrides 2014, which saw thousands of locals and visitors entertained by eight pipe bands, a samba group, Highland dancers, choirs, Vikings and fireworks at Lews Castle green the previous evening.

And the concert at the sports centre on Saturday providing a final flourish to those festivities with 700 people enjoying acts such as the Lochies, Julie Fowlis, Barr a’ Dannsa and the six-times World Champion pipe band, the Simon Fraser University Pipe Band.
