As part of the launch of Whisky Month the Festival will be even bigger this year, combining music with malt to produce a mouth-watering cocktail of entertainment. The Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival has launched the Spirit of Speyside Sessions – a new world-class music event celebrating the area’s rich traditional music heritage.
The Sessions will be staged at whisky-themed venues across the region, including distilleries, bars and even a vintage train. Launched as part of the Festival’s programme for the Year of Homecoming Scotland, it boasts an exciting line-up of first rate traditional music acts, comedians and ceilidhs.
Visitors to the Spirit of Speyside Sessions can enjoy a huge range of musical performances from traditional Scottish bands such as Old Blind Dogs and The Shee to indie rockers Withered Hand. The All-star Ceilidh Band and Trail West Ceilidh will also perform, along with whisky comedian Alan Anderson.
With so many fantastic artists that will appeal to music fans young and old, this major addition to the programme will open the whisky festival up to a whole new audience. Download a complete list of acts here.
