AFTER their massive 20th anniversary show earlier this year, trad titans Skipinnish are to return to Inverness in 2020 to headline the big top tent in Bught Park once more.

The band’s 20th birthday bash in Inverness on Friday July 5 as part of the LCC Live in the City gig series saw the band play to more than 4500 fans.

And LCC Live will be bringing the Celtic band back to Inverness on Saturday, July 4 2020, for the first of two major shows for the band next year.

For their Inverness show, Skipinnish will be joined by special guests including Big Country and Stornoway up-and-comers Peat & Diesel.

Formed in 1999, the last few years have seen Skipinnish rocket to the very top of the Celtic music scene. Their Inverness gig last year was their biggest to date.

Band co-founder Angus MacPhail said: “We had such an amazing show in Inverness in July. Performing a concert of that size in the Highland capital was a dream come true.

“We can’t wait to return and this time headline the Saturday night in the Big Top at Bught Park. Come and join us, sing your hearts out and go wild!”

This is the first of many music events for 2020 to be confirmed by LCC Live, the biggest producer of live music events in Inverness and the north of Scotland.

Carlie Davidson of LCC Live, said: “We had such a great weekend of live music in the Big Top Tent last year, that we’re delighted to be bringing it back in 2020.

“Skipinnish were out of this world when they performed this summer, and their fans had the most amazing night. We’re looking forward to welcoming Big Country and Peat & Diesel too – we’re planning a great summer of live music!”
