SOME of the Highlands’ top musical talent will be helping raise money for Scotland’s children living in poverty at an event in Inverness city centre next month.

Acts already signed up for the STV Appeal’s Songs In The City day of music and dance in Falcon Square, include Iain McLaughlin & The Outsiders, Bite Nite, Willie Campbell, Lionel, The Leonard Jones Potential, Silver Coast, The Highland Brass Band, Dorec-a-Belle, and Torridon.

The event takes place on Saturday 4th October from 11am to 5pm.

Dance and musical performances will be on offer through the day from Eden Court performing arts, TFX, KC Dance Crews, Performers UK, Step N Stylerz and Trapeze Entertainment.

Children’s characters will also be popping along to take part in the fun, courtesy of Mascot Madness, who will offer face-painting for those making a donation to the appeal.

The day will finished off with a performance from the Inverness British Legion Pipe Band in full Highland dress.

STV’s Highland reporter Nicola McAlley is organising the day in conjunction with Netsounds, online promoters and broadcasters of Scotland’s up-and-coming music.

"This is the second year we have organised Songs In The City and we are thrilled that Eastgate Centre is allowing us to host it in Falcon Square once more," McAlley said.

"Last year our volunteers raised over £2000 in street collections on the day, with money going to youth groups across our region. We hope people of all ages will come along to enjoy the brilliant musical entertainment and have fun while helping such a worthy cause."
