2024 Gathering Musical Guests (Tentative)

Murder the Stout

Hugh Morrison and Murder the Stout.  Progressive Celtic Rock band led by Wick-born Scottish button accordionist. Rollicking rhythms of traditional Scottish dance band music heard in Ceilidh dance halls across Scotland as well as folk, rock, punk and ska are all apparent in their music. Their catchy melodies and rousing sounds are sure to delight listeners young and old who will no doubt want to sing along. From first note to last, they are far more than the average pub-song rock band.
