Organisers NTM Promotions and The Pierhead Tavern are bringing together for the first time a collection of 6 stunning rock and blues bands to perform for you.

Opening the day will be a new band Raising Bail who play originals and covers such as John Meyer, ZZ Top, Robert Plant, Thin Lizzie, Tom Petty, Neil Young & Chris Isaak.

Following them are the Blues Mama a Glasgow based Blues Band covering classics from Rory Gallagher, Eta James, Chicken Shack, Frankie Miller & more.

Storm Warning are lauded by the UK Blues Press as one of the classiest contemporary blues bands in the UK, playing superbly crafted original blues rock songs and breathing new life into blues standards.  This year the band were voted “Best Band” at The British Rock & Blues Festival following their successful album “Take Cover”.

Dr Feelguid, Scotland’s Premier Dr Feelgood Tribute Band who have the tag line “we came we saw we copied!”  If you enjoyed the original Dr Feelgood you will enjoy these guys playing from their repertoire and more of that era.

George Lindsay Band – Lead by the fiery guitar and vocals of George Lindsay, the band play the blues, all the blues, from rocking to funky to country and everything in between.

The Sensational Alex Harvey Experience -The idea came about when the band were asked to headline SAHBROCK VI in 2013 and to do a SAHB Tribute and went down a storm. So much so, by popular demand, they decided to keep this project going as it was both fun to perform with all the theatrics and the songs, but also because the die-hard fans wanted to hear SAHB all over again.  They are highly recommended, and it has been said that the boys are one of the best live bands in the circuit.

“we are hoping that this year will be a great success and the beginning of a revolution of bringing music back to Arran as it was in the ‘70’s with Thin Lizzy, Slade, Nazareth and of course The Sensational Alex Harvey Band.  Next year maybe a two-day outdoor festival, anyone?”  Jane Howe, The Pierhead Tavern, Lamlash.

Tickets are on sale online through Tickets Scotland, from The Big Coop in Brodick and The Pierhead Tavern in Lamlash.
