Based in the Highlands of Scotland, Rhythmnreel are a Rock band with an upbeat foot stomping Celtic vibe.. Their music is driven by thumping bass, drums & guitars, embellished with fiddle, whistle & Highland bagpipes, enveloped in the warm tones of the saxophone with songs & melodies that once inside your ears won’t leave you even in your deepest slumber..
The band were formed back in 1993 & have built up a strong & loyal following, both at home in Scotland & overseas with regular tours to Germany, Switzerland & Holland, as well as many Festival appearances around the UK. They have performed at many & varied functions over the years from Marquee dances to Ceilidh’s, from Highland games to weddings & are more than renowned for some memorable & Barn Storming performances in the village halls up & down the North & West coast of Scotland..

Cala is a 6 piece trad band based in Inverness. Since independently releasing their debut single in 2020, they have been hard at work evolving their sound, playing major festivals like The Gathering and Belladrum, and making new material for stage and studio. Having recently signed on to Wee Studio Records, Cala’s debut album is now in the works and set to release in early 2023 with two singles already released. The band’s love for their craft and attention to detail in arranging and writing creates Cala’s unique spin on Scottish trad – a fresh, full, and exciting sound.
