For your viewing and listening pleasure, a virtual Belladrum is this week’s top viewing attraction

Despite the rain teeming down outside, any festival mudbaths will have to be virtual (or created in our own gardens. BBC Alba ‘celebrates’ the fact that Belladrum should be happening around about now. Starting on Saturday August 1st at 7pm, Belladrum 2020 : Air Chuairt will showcase a mix of new performance and archive music including Edwyn Collins, Julie Fowlis, Rachel Sermanni, Peat & Diesel, The East Pointers and KT Tunstall, plus headliners from the Belladrum Festival over the years.

On Sunday 2nd August, from 9pm, #TimsTwitterListeningParty sees Tim Burgess and presumably Mike Scott The Waterboys discuss the band’s 1984 album ‘A Pagan Place’.
