BELLADRUM has added The South, Foy Vance and a mystery guest for Friday’s main stage bill to the festival line-up.
But there’s also bad news for fans of singer songwriter Lianne La Havas – she has had to cancel her date due to US touring commitments.
The South – formerly known as The Beautiful South – played the Ironworks back in February with hits such as Song For Whoever, Perfect Ten, Rotterdam, Don’t Marry Her, You Keep It All In, Old Red Eyes Is Back and many others.
First appearing at the festival in 2005, Northern Ireland’s Foy Vance is back, appearing on Friday’s line-up. Foy was chosen by Ed Sheeran to tour with him.
Of the mystery special guest, promoter Joe Gibbs said: "The identity of this artist will not be revealed until they appear on the Garden Stage at 6.30pm on the Friday. But – and here’s a hint – judging by their previous receptions at Bella, they’re going to be a popular choice."
Also added are: the ska/grime/indie of Man Like Me, Orkney’s The Magnetic North including Erland and Simon from Erland & The Carnival, Nottingham indie five-piece Dog Is Dead who played Inverness earlier this year, as did Blackpool singer-songwriter Karima Francis, you can get a preview of Rae Morris at her gigs in Inverness, Wick and Thurso, Irish singer-songwriter Marc O’Reilly, Ellen & The Escapades from Leeds, Highland blues/bluegrass trio The Ballachulish Hellhounds, Inverness Celtic band Hoodja; Make Sparks and Inverness’s own metal gods Zombia Militia plus ; Highland youth Celtic groups Feis Rois and TMC Youth Fiddlers.
