See Syber, Puffins can promote too! ;) :-D


Doing a great job as well :D Looking forward to Stirling?

You bet we are - Runrig at Edinburgh first though! It'll be the first time we'll have seen Coast in a non-pub type setting and only the second outside Hampshire (Salisbury a couple of weeks back being the first!). Not sure what the band will think about their "ageing groupie" turning up so far from home territory though... :twisted: (They do know!! :D )

See you in Stirling. :thumbsup:

If you're in Inverness this week, check out the tour calendar for the FREE gig. Wish I was up, I've seen the photos from Speyfest

Speyfest was a great wee festival, very laid back, with a large, happy, ready-for-anthing audience.

I particularly enjoyed Emily Smith early evening, and then late evening Coast came on, and went down a storm with the large, bouncy, all-ages crowd. The energy was infectious. They played their rockier numbers, as that was the mood of the night - dancing, singing along, cheering. I think they made a lot of new fans there.

It was the Peatbog Faeries (fantastic) on after them, and the dancing and applause continued. A great session altogether.

Some great photos of the festival, including close-ups of Coast members if you scroll through, here:

Just back from their gig in Iochdar (the places I end up :D ). The lads were in great form but I think their tour manager should start to pick/get some better gigs for them or they could end up disappearing off the radar. A low turnout which only swelled towards the end and, if you're one of the ones who likes a moan about drunk people at a gig on the main board, then you would have had a field day here.

Yes they should be applauded for coming to the islands (we don't get much variation in the entertainment here) but I don't really think the band are going to get anywhere playing to a hall of blootered up youth (plus a few older ones). However I took the good lady along and for seeing them for the first time she seemed quite impressed. Again played all their own stuff when tonight chucking in a cover might have worked to get the kids onside a bit more although generally I think they went down well by the end.

Coast played a blinder at Speyfest last month. Played their wee hearts out to a tent full of folks, who had never heard them before. But they had the best reaction ever and the band were on top form. An hour long set, full of their faster paced, rockier tracks. These guys are getting better and better and well worth going to see if they play near you.

A few nights later they did a spur of the moment free gig in Nellie Dean's in Inverness, which was absolutely superb. Totally different crowd, but they loved the band and once again the boys were on top form.

Seriously well worth a peek at if you ever get the chance.

There is no return,
Once the seal's undone,
Morning dawning with life abounding,
But in time we all must fall,
And it seems to be this way,
Hearts change and brightness fades,
And it leaves you facing the days,
When your hope is blown apart,
Life is hard.


Only when the last tree has died & the last river has been poisoned & the last fish has been caught, will we realise that we cannot eat money.

So whatever happened to Coast? Just over a couple of years ago everyone was talking about them, since then nothing!

Seen them a few weeks back on their Coast to Coast Scottish mini tour. They were fantastic, such a shame they don't seem to attract big audiences in this country. Went to Anstruther and Dundee to see them on consecutive nights, and was well impressed. Very, very talented band.

This wee guy loves their music too, check this out...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VqhQnPG-AqM

Hah! Just down the road from me and I didn't know they were there! Am I right in assuming that all the Coast information is now on Facebook? Presumably they don't attract big audiences in Scotland because they're not very well known up here.

Facebook is certainly where I got the info from. Been hoping they'd come back up to Scotland for ages. I think they might be back next year, the Dundee Celtic Festival loved them.

Was a decent lineup, Donnie & his band were on the lineup too.
