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.
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.
