We're delighted to be hosting the Fèis Rois Ceilidh Trail at The Glad Cafe once again this year!

Fèis Rois is gearing up for another year of its renowned Ceilidh Trail. The project, which employs 14 outstanding young musicians across three tours, brings high quality traditional music performances to communities across Scotland during the peak tourist season in July and August. Taking place from 17th July to 12th August, the Ceilidh Trail provides visitors to Scotland with the opportunity to experience authentic traditional Scottish music in a wide range of settings.
Based in Ross-Shire, Fèis Rois is one of Scotland’s leading traditional arts organisations, providing opportunities for people of all ages to participate in Scottish traditional music, song and dance. Over 3,000 people take part in Fèis Rois projects every year with audiences of over 10,000 attending performances across the country, from Aberfeldy to Achiltibuie and from Edderton to Edinburgh. The Ceilidh Trail project gives young musicians the chance to gain work experience as a touring artist. The participants begin the project with an intensive training week in Cromarty where they hone their skills in stage craft, dance calling and setting up their own live sound system. The workshops will prepare them for the diverse nature of their engagements.

For four weeks, three groups are performing at more than 70 venues across Scotland, playing at a diverse range of engagements: from concerts in Scotland’s historic sites and Scotland’s finest pubs and restaurants, to showcases in the country’s leading theatres and ceilidh dances in local village halls.
