“Niteworks' sound crosses genres and boundaries, melding Gaelic vocals with electronica and dance music. Add all this to their explosive live shows and you've got a band that truly encapsulates what it means to be Scottish: imaginative, versatile, cultural and exciting.” The List

Niteworks fuse the Gaelic language and traditional music that was central to their upbringing on the Isle of Skye with electronica and techno to create an electrifying and genre-defying sound.

The band, comprising of Innes Strachan (Synth), Allan MacDonald (Pipes), Christopher Nicolson (Bass) and Ruairidh Graham (Drums), are set to have their busiest year in 2018, which will see the release of their second album; the follow up to their critically acclaimed ‘NW’, released 2015.

Their second album, to be released this summer, sees the band’s sound mature. Overseen by acclaimed techno producer Alex Menzies (Alex Smoke), and featuring appearances from notable acts such as Julie Fowlis, Iain Morrison, Ellen MacDonald, Sian and Kinnaris Quintet, it is a record that blurs the lines between Scottish traditional music and contemporary electronica.

The band welcomed in the New Year at Edinburgh's Hogmanay 18 having been asked to curate the music to accompany the expansive fireworks display, broadcast not only around Edinburgh but live on BBC Scotland. The band also played to a sold out 12,000 audience at the SSE Hydro in Glasgow at Celtic Connections.

Niteworks will also be hosting an afterparty with Niteworks and Skye Live Soundsystem DJs from 11:30pm. £5 on the door, £2 with ticket show. Over 18s only.

    Niteworks are Ruairidh Graham, Allan MacDonald, Christopher Nicolson and Innes Strachan. Formed on the Isle of Skye, they fuse Gaelic language and traditional music with electronic influences to create a fresh and exhilarating sound. Following their first EP ‘Niteworks : Obair Oidhche’ in 2011 the band were winners of the ‘Up and Coming Artist of the Year’ award at the 2012 Scottish Trad Awards. In 2015 the band released their highly anticipated debut album NW to acclaim from around the folk community. The band’s unique sound comes into its own in the live arena with the last year alone having seen multiple sold-out shows in Glasgow and stage-closing performances at festivals across Scotland, leaving packed crowds pulsating into the night.
