Brew at the Bog 2013 Preview!

I only managed to make it to a few festivals last year, 3 to be exact, and I loved every one. Hopefully 2013 will contain a couple more but for me the festival season starts with a very specific one. Brew at the Bog. Held at award winning venue Bogbain Farm it’s got a friendly atmosphere, some great music, some great beer from Brew Dog and….bloody cold weather. WELL 2012 did anyway. While it’s set at the May Day bank holiday weekend this years was unseasonably cold. And that’s the important bit. The one negative thing….shouldn’t have happened. So there’s a very good chance that this year it won’t. And even if it does, it didn’t put anyone who attended down and we all still had a damned good festival.

PLUS it’s only £20. £30 if you camp and you probably should as the craic at the campsite on the Friday night was great. I wimped out and went home on the Saturday so can’t really speak to that night. Won’t be the case this year though, I’m hardened now. If camping isn’t for you it’s really close to Inverness anyway so you can get a hotel room or something. Or just go home after if you’re local.

Here is a bit of what last year was like from Breaking News North (yes, that’s me) and here’s a wee session with Anna Meldrum from Kitty The Lion.

So this year it falls on the 4th of May, here’s who you’ll get to hear. And who I’ll hopefully be getting session tracks for the show from. If there aren’t descriptions yet you’ll have to do some leg work of your own, but I’ll update to include one for everyone.

Fatherson – One of my ones to watch in 2013. Fantastic at being a bit mellow, fantastic at being really loud, sometimes in the same song! Great folk rock music fronted by a very powerful voice and bouyed by very strong lyrics.
Randolph’s Leap – a melodic 8 piece pop folks band out of Glasgow. They sound brilliant, and instead of doing my own description I’ll quote my favourite DJ. “They are ace” – Marc Riley, BBC 6Music. Don’t need any more endoursement than that in my book.
