Raasay Tunes for 2019 – Scotch Whisky News


Raasay Distillery, situated off the north-west coast of Scotland on the idyllic Isle of Raasay, has gained international acclaim for both their rich and fruity single malt scotch whisky and their impressive calendar of regular ‘Raasay Tunes’ music events. Since the opening of their impressive visitors’ centre in January 2018, Raasay Distillery have hosted a wide range of artists, from local favourites to international stars.

On the 28th September, ‘Raasay Tunes’ welcomes two of Scotland’s most popular Highland multi-instrumentalists, Mairearad Green on accordion, bagpipes and vocals and Anna Massie on guitar, banjo, fiddle and vocals. Having performed for over ten years as a duo, the pair are famous for their combination of highly energetic performance and warm, funny stage presence. Tickets here.

On the 1st November, Raasay Distillery looks forward to a night of music and entertainment from The Donald Black Band. A native of Benderloch, Argyll, Donald’s roots are firmly steeped in the West of Scotland Highland Bagpipe and Gaelic tradition, but his repertoire extends well beyond to embrace the idioms of Ireland, Shetland Isles, Nova Scotia and mainland Scotland. He is totally self-taught and embraces his own unique style, which has taken him across the world from Moscow to Kansas City, Chicago to Stornoway. Tickets here.

On the 15th November, by popular island demand, Willie Campbell brings his song-filled solo performance back to Raasay. An energy-filled night of beautifully crafted songs from his cross-genre repertoire ranging across Country and Western, Pop and Hebridean Americana to Trad Gaelic awaits visitors to the distillery, and his irresistible hook-filled melodies, ringing guitar sound and catchy choruses are guaranteed to flush out the reluctant Raasay crooners in the audience. Tickets here.

Each event will cost £12 and will take place in the distillery Gathering Room from 8 pm until late (doors open at 6.30pm).
