Commissioned Work for Hebcelt Festival Released as charity single

A music single created as part of a series of new commissioned works by the Hebridean Celtic Festival (HebCelt), has been released with all proceeds going to a Stornoway charity.

Featuring talented Outer Hebrides singer songwriter Colin MacLeod, the track is a version of Runrig’s anthemic ‘Only the Brave’, and features Rory MacDonald of Runrig, Julie Fowlis, and a variety of talented artists collectively dubbed the Hebridean Allstars for the commission.

The commission series, Seisean HebCelt / HebCelt Sessions, has seen a variety of works aired on its social media channels during the dates on which the festival was due to take place (15th-18th July). The festival itself has been postponed until 2021 due to the pandemic impact of Covid-19. The commissions are part of the festival’s 25th anniversary celebrations and a reminder of its attributes.
