Former Runrig bandmates Donnie Munro and Blair Douglas are set to reunite later this month when they take to the stage at Portree’s Skye Live festival.

Taking place at the King George V playing field in Portree on Friday 29th and Saturday 30th April, the festival will see Munro and Douglas reunite for a special performance. Munro — whose son Niall organises the festival along with Ali MacIsaac — proved a hit at last year’s debut event and he has promised to deliver some big crowd favourites during the Saturday-night slot.

He said: “I am really looking forward to playing this year’s Skye Live festival. Last year’s inaugural event was such a great experience and the atmosphere of the ‘home crowd’ just something really special. To be invited back again this year as a ‘special guest’ is a great honour and, on this occasion, to be able to perform along with Blair Douglas, one of my original Runrig colleagues and such a great musician, makes it all the more special.

“I am sure it is going to be an amazing festival and, with such a brilliant and eclectic line-up over the two nights, it really is the place to be.”
