I am currently sitting in The Ceilidh Place, Ullapool – waiting for my friend to join me, to catch this evenings ferry to the Isle of Lewis. Leaving my magic props in Stornoway, we are then heading on an adventure down the Outer Hebrides. Ending up in Castlebay, Isle of Barra. Before heading back up (!) to Stornoway to the Hebridean Celtic Festival, where I am performing magic. The festival kicks off next Wednesday evening.
I have been going to HebCelt for over 10 years and have been performing magic there since 2012!! The festival is a great reunion of old friends, but also making new friends. This year’s festival has a fantastic line up with The Waterboys, Imelda May, Dougie Maclean, Skerryvore, Lau, Peatbog Faeries, Elephant Sessions and Ryan Young – to name a few! So if you are wanting to see some fantastic bands, enjoy some awesome magic and relax in a superb festive – book your tickets now!
And of course – if you are in the Outer Hebrides over the next week – look out for me and I could perform you some impromptu magic!!
