We’ve had a very busy year this year and some amazing and interesting events have resulted. Not least today’s performance at Glasgow Airport to celebrate the launch of RyanAir’s inaugral flight from Glasgow Airport To Dublin. Clanadonia were brought in to perform as people boarded the plane and, despite the “classic” Scottish weather, they went down a storm!
Many thanks to Glasgow Airport and RyanAir and on a purely selfish note, we’re delighted that we can now catch a RyanAir flight to Dublin direct from Glasgow Airport – it’s going to make our Dublin trips far easier from here on in!
Take a look at some of the press pics here
Clanadonia are all set to perform at this year’s Culture Fest at the 02 ABC Glasgow on Sat 6th September. tickets are on sale for the event at ticketweb.co.uk

After performing at the opening ceremony of the Glasgow Commonwealth Games, the guys were delighted to be asked back to entertain the athletes as they arrived the Commonwealth Village. Needless to say they were very well received and turned out to be an alternative (and some might say rather loud) warmup session for the athletic teams!

Clanadonia were thrilled to be asked to welcome athletes, and the rest of the world, to the Commonwealth Games last night. The performance went down a storm with the 40,000 strong crowd at Celtic Park with the band receiving a humbling standing ovation following their performance.
We’re proud to have been part of such a momentous occasion and proud that it all happened in our home city of Glasgow!
Wishing all the athletes all the very best of luck over the coming 10 days.
Royal Highland Show 2014 – 19th – 22nd June
Clanadonia will be performing on the opening day of the Royal Highland Show today. The guys have played this event a few times over the years and always go down storm and also thoroughly enjoy themselves. Stonkingly good weather for it too but rain is traditional at the RHS…
The guys were delighted to have been asked to perform at the glorious Gleneagles Hotel at the weekend for the clothes and sportswear company Adidas. The band were recommended to them by Boss Models and they had a great time playing some musical accompaniment to for a pair of dancers and went down a storm, as ever.
Aside from being only the 5th time in 20 years that no member of the old firm is in attendance, another good reason to keep an eye on the Scottish Cup final on Saturday would be to witness the guys playing the trophy up the tunnel to start the opening ceremony. The game between St Johnstone and Dundee United will be played at Celtic Park as Hampden is undergoing a major refit to be ready for the Commonwealth Games, the band will also be playing outside on the day before the game so plenty of photo ops there.
As I’m sure a fair few of you will know, the 18th annual MOBO awards will be taking place in Glasgow on at the newly minted SSE Hydro this Saturday.
The Music Of Black Origin (MOBO) Awards was established in 1996 by Kanya King and Andy Ruffell to recognise and celebrate artists who create ‘black’ or ‘urban’ music. In its 18 years, it has only been held outside on London in 2009, 2011 and now this year, all of these ceremonies have been held in Glasgow. You are most welcome nice people.
This week the guys played at a rather swanky corporate event for the whisky Johnnie Walker who have been on the high seas for a few weeks, (all info here), hobnobbing with a few Scottish rugby players along the way too. The yacht had berthed at the weekend and the organisers have been entertaining guests away from the madness of the festival down in Leith.
This summer sees the guys doing a fair bit of work on the festival circuit:
