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.
Clanadonia will be serving up some traditional Scottish fare for the crowds at the Commonwealth Village in Tollcross on the 28th July and the 3rd August. Quite what an international crowd of athletes is going to make of them is anyone’s guess but we’re betting there’ll be a lot of photo requests on those days.
A great little article covered in the Scottish Wedding Directory about an engagement performance last year in the Botanical gardens of Edinburgh. We were delighted to perform as a surprise straight after Calum proposed to Morwenna – and… well let’s just say we were relieved she said yes!!
Clanadonia are happy to endorse this Kickstarter fund to help produce a pilot episode of the Television Series, Lion of Alba, about the Reign of King Robert the Bruce.
They are looking for 200,000 people to pledge $10 to produce the pilot episode of the “Lion of Alba” TV series about the reign of King Robert the Bruce. We’re sure are proud of your heritage and if you can help please visit the site and pledge some cash. Non Scots also welcome 😉
Lion of Alba is the working title, as Scotland has been known as “the Lion of the North” for centuries, and the royal flag displays a single red lion rampant and man himself was Scotland’s fiercest warrior-king. And Alba, of course, is an ancient word for Scotland.
