Look out the kilt, polish your shoes and dust off the sporran - The Vatersay Boys are coming to Rothesay on September 4 for a charity ceilidh.

The band, which hails from the isles of Vatersay and Barra, has established a loyal fan following with their high-energy performances across the country and beyond.

With west coast tunes and unbelievable craic – the boys are guaranteed to get your feet tapping, even if you’re rhythmically challenged!

For the past 15 years or so, The Vatersay Boys have been spreading mayhem. Featuring on the band’s yearly itinerary are major summer festivals, sell-out gigs at Glasgow’s world-renowned Barrowland Ballroom and, of course, the intimate, but lively, performances at their home in the Castlebay Bar and Vatersay Hall. The ‘Boys’ have cross-generational appeal, with young and old alike attending their gigs and joining in on the fun.

The melodic, natural sound of brothers, Andy and Michael, on piano accordion and button box is accompanied by the driving, percussive rhythm of the drums and bass and reinforced by some fast finger-work on the Great Highland Bagpipe.

Tickets - a bargain at £10 each - are available from Rothesay Pavilion’s ticket box office, The Dressing Room in Montague Street, and online at Doors open at 7.30pm, and all proceeds will go to Achievement Bute which supports families of children with additional needs on the island.
