Van Morrison returns to the Hebridean Celtic Festival

Also confirmed are Lau, Karine Polwart, The Travelling Band, Fatherson and more

The legendary Van Morrison is returning to the Hebridean Celtic Festival eight years after his memorable gig at the event. Morrison is confirmed to play the 18th birthday festival which runs from 17-20 July and is based in the island of Lewis.

Fans of Van the Man can expect a collection of classics from a 50-year career as well as songs from his latest album Born to Sing: No Plan B.

Last week it was announced the Scottish singer/songwriter Dougie MacLean will be another of HebCelt’s headline acts, 17 years after appearing in the inaugural event. He will perform at HebCelt with a new nine-piece line-up, The MacLean Project.

Morrison and MacLean join a number of other artists also confirmed to be appearing at this year’s festival, including Lau, Karine Polwart, The Travelling Band, Fatherson, The Chair and Rusty Shackle. Also confirmed are top Scottish live acts The Battlefield Band and The Red Hot Chilli Pipers, as well as Virginian five-piece band The Hot Seats.

Local acts including Iain Morrison; singer songwriter Colin MacLeod, also from Lewis and known as The Boy Who Trapped The Sun; and Celtic rock five-piece Face the West complete the list of performers so far.

The 18th HebCelt is attracting huge interest and advance tickets have already been snapped up, weekend tickets are now priced at £75 (£57 for concession and £18 for under 14s) - day tickets go on sale on 1 March.
