Eabhal + Ruach, Nicky Murray

Saturday 13 July

Eabhal met and began making music together on the Outer-Hebrides' Isle of Uist, taking their name from the iconic North Island hill.

Playing folk and traditional music from Scotland, Ireland, Asturias and further afield alongside self-penned tunes and Gaelic songs, they produce a melting pot of sound representative of their different backgrounds.

They won the 2018 "Battle of the Folk Bands" and were runners up for "Up and Coming" at the Scots Trad Music Awards 2018.

Their debut album "This is How the Ladies Dance" was released in January 2019.
