The first acts for next year’s Hebridean Celtic Festival have been announced.


Festival favourites Skipinnish will headline the arena opening evening on 19 July.


Internationally-acclaimed Blazin’ Fiddles will also perform.


After a stunning debut last year, Tide Lines will be back in 2018.


Local band The Tumbling Souls, a six-piece, fronted by Lewis singer-songwriter Willie Campbell and featuring members of Face The West, Astrid and Hò-Rò, will make their festival arena debut in 2018.


Also featured are Kinnaris Quintet, a new all-female band who combine new compositions with traditional Scottish and Irish, Bluegrass, old-time and classical music.


Completing the Scottish contingent, Trail West, whose members hail from Tiree and South Uist, are backed with a new six-piece festival line-up.


Vishtèn and the Yves Lambert Trio join the festival programme to continue the event’s long cultural connection to Canada.


Representing Denmark will be one of the country’s leading folk acts, Habadekuk. The eight-piece band blend folk, salsa and big band jazz.
