Friday Night Gig at the Green – Skerryvore, supported by Cody Feechan, Wally Green Marquee, 8pm

Sponsored by David Urquhart Joiners

Friday 19th June 2020,  Gig at the Green, Wally Green Marquee

Skerryvore is a Scottish Celtic Rock group formed on Tiree, Argyll and Bute in 2005. The band represents the best in contemporary Scottish traditional music, with a growing fanbase worldwide and with the promise of much more to come.  2020 marks the 15th Anniversary of the band and we’re delighted to host them in Portsoy as part of the Scottish Traditional Boat Festival.  Find out more on their website here.

Cody Feechan is a singer-songwriter from Fife, Scotland. Taking influences from all sorts of genres, Cody’s music is probably best described as Alternative Rock with a touch of Pop. Cody has been noticed for her subtle Scottish twang shining through in her songs. Cody has provided support to Dougie MacLean, Stevie McCrorie (winner of The Voice 2015), The Amazons, Tom Hingley (Inspiral Carpets) and Scottish folk legend Dick Gaughan.
