Netsounds is teaming up with Belladrum and Ironworks to whet everyone’s appetite with a Bella Fringe Showcase! As well as an awesome line-up of emerging musical talent from the Inverness area, there will also be a chance to win a pair of tickets to Belladrum 2018.
The live music showcase on Friday 27th July will feature Carma, Park Circus, Sam Cain, The Chosen Lonely and Gordon James and the Power all playing on the Ironworks stage a week before Belladrum.
On the night there will be a giant raffle where tickets will be sold for £1 with the chance to win a pair of tickets to Belladrum 2018. The raffle will raise money for Belladrum’s lead local charity, Lovat Shinty Club, who are raising funds to build a new pavilion to replace their 40-year-old club house.
Kenna Ross from Carma said, “We are really looking forward to performing at the Ironworks on the 27th as it will be a real Belladrum warm up for us, there are also so many great acts on the night!”
Steven Barclay from The Chosen Lonely stated, “Due to growing up in Inverness, and having witnessed some of my favourite acts perform in the Ironworks, it’s always a delight for me to be asked to play at this venue. And going by the names also featured in this line-up, I’m honoured to be a part of what seems to be a very vibrant & healthy time for my hometown!”
Gordon James and The Power expressed their delight at being involved: “We are over the moon to be part of the Netsounds’ Bella Fringe Showcase at the Ironworks. It’s great to see such an established venue supporting the North’s emerging talent.”
Caroline Campbell, Venue Director at the Ironworks, says, “We always strive to support local talent and it’s great to see Netsounds team up with Belladrum and the Ironworks to put on a great line-up ahead of the festival. We can’t think of a better way to get yourself warmed up for Bella!”
Joe Gibbs, Founder, Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival added, “We are always keen to play our part in supporting the stars of tomorrow and we look forward to checking out some of the Highlands most exciting emerging acts. Netsounds always know how to put on a great party so hopefully see you there.”
