The Shoogles are delighted to be returning to TradFest!
Following the death of their much-loved fiddle player Angus R Grant in 2016,
last year was all about remembrance, recording and re-grouping. This year, however,
they are emerging from their collective cocoon for some live shows with a brand new
fiddle player whom they’re sure you’re going to love.
One of the stars of the band’s award-winning tribute show to Angus in January 2017,
the newest Shoogle – Eilidh Shaw – is one of Scotland’s finest fiddle players. She
lights up the stage with her spangly boots and her infectious charm.
The TradFest gig will be about celebrating a new start for Shooglenifty in their collective
home town, with some new tunes to sample, plus plenty of the old favourites too.
There will be dancing!
