This year's Hebridean Celtic Festival will be held from 17th - 19th July but already the organisers are busy behind the scenes. The first three acts to take part at the 2019 event were announced last month and these are Tide Lines, Talisk and FARA.
Tide Lines, who will be appearing for the third consecutive year, have built up a massive following since launching in 2016 and will, on this occasion, take to the stage on the Thursday night.
The multi-award-winning folk band Talisk, who formed five years ago, are also making a return to the HebCelt, fresh from their award of a Belhaven Bursary for Innovation in Scottish Music, at the recent Scottish Trad Music Awards.
FARA, consisting of four highly talented young Orcadian musicians, have made a big name for themselves on the Scottish folk scene and have recently been on a tour of the UK.
More acts are expected to be announced in the very near future.
