Come and join us for the Festival Ceilidh with Trail West, who were nominated as Scottish Dance Band of the Year at the recent Trad Awards. You will be able to dance traditional sets or just sit back and enjoy the music.  Trail West are a mixture of accordion, small-pipes, guitar, drums and bagpipes and offer a refreshing, yet traditional, west coast ceilidh band sound.

Trail West are an up and coming ceilidh band based on the Isle of Tiree. Consisting of Ian Smith on lead accordion, Andrew Findlater on drums and vocals and Alain Campbell on guitar, Trail West offer a refreshing, yet traditional, west coast ceilidh band sound.
Since forming in 2008, Trail West have been in high demand throughout Scotland. The band's line-up has changed considerably since their formation and has included local Tiree musicians; Steven Cameron, Colin MacKinnon, Sophie Isaacson and John Campbell. In 2009, the band completed a Tour of the West of Scotland, performing in places such as Barra, Mull, Islay and Stornoway, enthralling audiences with their entertaining style of west coast music.
This year has been successful yet again for Trail West. In April 2010, the band performed at the Mull Music Festival and, this summer, completed a second Tour- making debut performances at Barrafest and also the first ever Tiree Music Festival. Their progress was rewarded when the band were nominated for the 'Scottish Dance Band of the Year' category at the MG Alba Scots Trad Music Awards 2010.
