      Little Feat Open and head up the Belladrum Festival Tartan Heart Fringe 2008
      on the last UK date of their "Join The Band World Tour"

      Many people choose to travel to the Highlands for a summer break hoping to
      find "world class music, the great out doors, good food and drink, and all
      in the best possible company"

      Now I'm pleased to say all that is guaranteed for 12 halcyon days in July
      and August 2008.

      I'm keen to let all music Fans know about this musical trail, our Festival
      and the Little Feats appearance, can you help please? Please tell your
      friends and neighbours post this to any-one you think would be interested

      I'm keen to get the word out about The Belladrum Tartan Heart Fringe in
      particular, which has been organised so there is a choice of gigs every
      night of the week in one Highland musical hotspot or an other so people can
      follow a magical musical trail around village halls, folk clubs, Highland
      hostelries and famed watering holes to Belladrum. ......... Rob Ellen

      The Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival and Belladrum Tartan Heart Fringe 29th

      Ever fancied experiencing a Ceilidh in a West Highland Village Hall, how
      about some Bluegrass on the Isle of Muck, then perhaps take in a community
      folk club, or village pub session, while traveling through the heart
      stopping beauty on the way to exploring the east coast before visiting for
      the famous Village Sunsets Sessions at Collieston near Aberdeen, then join

      Collins ) circus and burlesque, alternative side shows, fantastic selection
      of children's activities, comedy, theatre and even a mountain biking trail
      around the beautiful Belladrum Estate on Saturday morning for those who
      still have such energy left. Plan your own musical trail here

      The Dawn Raid at Golspie http://www.sutherlandraid.com/


      Our friends at Square Wheels Cycles Strathpeffer announce the Dawn Raid (on
      Golspie) on Saturday 28th/29th June 2008.


      From the Square Wheels team who brought you the Puffer, here's another
      unique event. And are sponsors of The Belladrum Tartan Heart Fringe and
      Potting Shed Stage full programme now posted (See Below)

      Britain's first (and most northerly) 12 hour mountain bike race....with a
      difference.....it's 8pm to 8am!

      There are all the usual facilities, catering from "The Red Poppy", free
      camping, spot prizes etc. This year Medicine Music have been engaged to
      supply music for the The Dawn Raid Marquee Dance, which runs while the race
      runs from 9pm till sometime when Saturday 28th. Riders and spectators are
      invited to get their rocks off to! or fall off Rocks with! (Your Choice!!!)

      Highland Indie Funksters Shenanigans
      <http://www.myspace.com/shenanigans2007aye>
      http://www.myspace.com/shenanigans2007aye "Drunken dances for night long
      romances....!?"

      Caledonians finest The Andy Gunn Band
      <http://www.nessmp3.com/music/andygunnband>
      http://www.nessmp3.com/music/andygunnband When Andy Gunn rolls into town
      with his band, the first in line for tickets are invariably other musicians.
      This is a player who never fails to impress. He blows people away for a
      living. From Virgin Records sponsored jamming on Beale Street, Memphis,
      Tennessee in the early days to the remote Highland tours, this
      guitarist-songwriter always touches with his unique brand of soul-fire! This
      astounding home grown talent cooks up some electrifying Highland Voodoo
      soup. When these guys hit the road, cobwebs disappear. You'd be advised to
      bring along your seatbelt. These days he has some searingly hot new
      sidekicks along for the ride, Including these days Blues Guru RetroSmith,
      (harmonica) and Highland legend Tabs McCaskill .


      "Some of the spikiest shards of funk blues guitar," said Scotland on Sunday;

      "probably the best acoustic slide guitarist in Scotland," said The Scotsman.

      Aberdeen's Total Thrash Speed Folksters The Lorelei are highland favourites
      and marquee masters, from headlined the last Ault Na Main Festival to
      opening last years Belladrum Festival they are known for lighting the blue
      touch paper of any event.


      The Lorelei have been described in many ways:


      “The Lorelei have managed to create a new musical genre – Total Thrash Speed
      Folk.
      It’s a wild and energetic sound with savage guitars mixed with acoustic
      instrumentation”
      Rock’n’Reel Magazine Issue19


      “Though born of the folky, rootsy rhythms and acoustic afternoons spent
      busking,
      The Lorelei were always more urban energy than fisherman’s blues.”
      M8 1992


      “ The Pogues and The Screaming Trees swaggering home drunk”
      Time Out 1994


      “ The Waterboys after too much marching powder”
      Time Out 1995


      “Truly contemporary, like some mental post-modern hardcore world music
      pathfinder general,
      the mix’n’match melody merchants.”
      The Scotsman 1995


      “Live, there is no other band to touch them for a stomingly good gig, sort
      of like a punk ceilidh.”
      Evening Express 1994


      ““….Folk tinged with sub-pop guitar grunge is perhaps the best way to
      describe The Lorelei’s
      unique and beautifully crafted sound. It’s a fusing of disparate genres
      which looks like an impossibility on paper; live, however, the Lorelei’s
      music is compelling.”
      M8 magazine 1995


      “Their music has been described “adrenalin driven anthems of urban energy
      born of folksy
      rootsy rhythms and afternoon’s spent busking.”
      Scottish Music magazine 1995



      The Marquee Dance is pay at the door

      The Race

      Before you start to dust off and charge your lights, the race is the week
      after the longest day of the year, so the sun don't set! If the sky is
      clear, you'll get by with a headtorch.

      It's £25 per person, teams are solos, two or four. Kids race in early
      evening. This is the most northerly endurance race in the world. Similar to
      the Strathpeffer without the darkness, the rain, the snow and the ice. And
      the mud. And the wind. Puffer lite? Puff Baby? Basically it won't get dark
      up here. We've also got a marquee with a bar and a live band playing to
      entertain you between laps, and stop your support team from dozing off.

      For all you one-gear fanatics the race incorporates the Scottish Singlespeed
      Champs too!

      Places are limited to 200 riders and it's filling up fast so book now.

      Email <mailto:info@...> info@... and give us the
      usual stuff:

      Name, address, email, phone number
      Category: all male, all female, mixed?
      Your age
      A team name (check out Strathpuffer 24
      <http://strathpuffer.co.uk/strathpuffer/event_strathpuffer.htm> for ideas).
      We'll call you back to sort out payment.

      See you there!
