Edinburgh International Festival: Shooglenifty

About Edinburgh International Festival: Shooglenifty

Formed in Edinburgh in 1990, Shooglenifty has always embraced a wide church of influences. The band draws in members from the Highlands and Islands, and the city, from traditional musical backgrounds, and those shaped by more experimental genres. A Shooglenifty concert is a celebration of all those forces and many more, influences picked up in almost three decades together.

This concert draws together international collaborators who contributed to the band’s globe-trotting recording projects in recent years, namely their five-star album Written in Water, produced in Rajasthan with Dhun Dhora (included in music bible Mojo’s folk Top Ten for 2018), and the timely humanitarian anthem East West recorded in Galicia with Tanxugueiras.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Edinburgh International Festival: Shooglenifty are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
