As part of our American roots music strand, the Universal Hall is delighted to host Lindsay Lou & The Flatbellys; the four-piece vocal and string band who created a huge impact when they made their UK debut earlier this year at Shetland Folk Festival. Hailing from the Great Lakes State of Michigan, there is something to please all tastes in their live performances — passionate affairs that stir the blood and exhilarate — from bluesy works of wonder to blistering bluegrass. "Exciting — with a pulse and rhythm that sets them apart" AmericanaUK

Take a group of the hottest contemporary fiddle players from the Highlands and Islands, mix with some wonderfully sympathetic piano and guitar arrangements, and you've got Scotland's multi-award winning Blazin' Fiddles. Over the last 15 years, no other band has quite managed to capture the excitement, passion and sensitivity of Scottish music all at once. The Blazers, who were Scots Trad Music Awards' Folk Band of the Year 2013/14, never fail to raise the temperature in the Universal Hall and we are delighted to have them back.
