We are very pleased to announce our first performer of the night.
Craig is one of the country’s most highly esteemed pipers and has been involved in a range of major high profile performances.
He has appeared on stage with various acts including Queen + Adam Lambert, The Libertines, Kaiser Chiefs, The Courteeners, Bay City Rollers and Rudimental. Craig has also performed for various important dignitaries including various members of the Royal Family including Her Majesty The Queen and His Holiness The Dalai Lama. He has also performed for Michelle Obama, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Calvin Harris, Sir Billy Connolly and Sir Alex Ferguson among others. He has performed at events including Commonwealth Games and the MOBO Awards.
Craig also fronts Gleadhraich who have performed all over Europe, and America and were named Best Celtic Music Act at the 2018 Infinitime Music Awards. In addition, Craig fronts his Cabalistic Cavalry, a folk music project where he sings and plays guitar. Craig is pleased to be honouring his friend, Alan Longmuir, at this event.
“Alan was such a humble unassuming man, who was always willing to pass on advice and support to young musicians. He made playing with the Bay City Rollers on their reunion tour and at T in the Park such a great experience and his tour bus stories won’t be forgotten! It was a pleasure to have him guest with Gleadhraich on several occasions. We looked up to him so much that he became known to us as Grandad Longmuir. It was also great to be an invited guest for the last two years of I Ran With The Gang at the Edinburgh Fringe.” Craig Weir
