This is the second year of the Festival and is the strongest line up yet, it will take the same format of inclusion for audiences and support for artists that The Caledonian Hotel is famous for, with free afternoon gigs in the bar work shops and tutorials all weekend, and full band concert/Dances on every night in the Incomparable dance Hall function suit.

If you would like to play or perhaps your band would like to know how they would sound with a brass section, let me know and I'll schedule a spot and a rehearsal

Special Accommodation rates available and there still is some room at the Inn but you will have to hurry to secure
