Join us on Saturday, May 30th for our sixth annual event, offering up everything you have come to know and love about Eaglesham Beer Festival – but SO MUCH MORE! 🍺🎼
Not only will we continue to showcase the best brewers and street food vendors this country has to offer, but this year we will have TWO live stages filled to the brim with some of Scotland’s best live acts. 🎼🎺🎤 That includes Sara ‘N’ Junbug, Megan D, Kate McCabe, Beerjacket, The Shiverin’ Sheiks, S.H.E.B, Dogtooth, Tom McGuire & The Brassholes, and a whole host of other artists. And don’t forget our legendary DJ stage headed up by the one and only, Let’s Get Eclectic 🎧
Before that, we will have two live gigs for festival week starting on Thursday, May 28 and continuing into Friday, May 29. The Thursdsay gig sees one of Scotland’s most celebrated singer/songwriters take centrestage right here in our beautiful village. We are delighted to welcome Ross Wilson – better known as Blue Rose Code – to the Eglinton Arms Hotel, with support from Cara Rose. Acclaimed by AmericanaUK as “one of the greatest live acts around right now,” the Edinburgh-born singer writes straight from, and to, the heart.
Building on the huge acclaim for 2017’s fourth album ‘The Water of Leith’, Ross’ songs are variously painted with the vibrant colours of folk, Americana, jazz, country, soul and pop; an eclecticism that has become a hallmark of his work and which has seen him compared to JOHN MARTYN, VAN MORRISON and TOM WAITS amongst others. To experience Ross live is to experience true Scottish musical class and we are honoured to welcome him to Eaglesham.
He will be followed on Friday by Papa Shandy & the Drams. Those in attendance at last year’s Friday night spectacular will remember the band for having the Jam Tent rocking.
Expect a fantastic hooley of traditional Scottish music and fantastic cover songs, with a nod to Irish, Americana and country.
Tickets will be on sale at the end of February.
As usual, we’ll have some of the finest beers and brewers Scotland has to offer, with fine wines, prosecco and some of the finest street food vendors and fayre around. On top of that we’ll have our innovative The Orry Botanical gin created and bottled with one of Scotland’s most sought after botanists.
As usual, you’ll have to stay tuned here on our website, on our social media channels, and traditional media for up-to-date information about what’s sure to be our biggest and best festival yet.
