N.B. IF YOU DON’T HAVE A TICKET FOR THE TARTAN RIDE, YOU CAN STILL JOIN US FOR THE CEILIDH AT WEST BREWERY FROM 10pm.
We’d love to see as many people as possible at West to appreciate the wonderful Tartan Ride Ceilidh Band (details below). Entry is by donation at the door (suggested donation £5)
We will be having a raffle and some splendid fun and games, as well as a real hootenanny!
The Tartan Ride is not a race. The Tartan Ride is not a challenge. The Tartan Ride is a social event to celebrate St Andrew’s Day as only bike lovers can. The Tartan Ride is a catalyst for change to help those less-fortunate by enabling and encouraging a healthier lifestyle.
The inaugural Tartan Ride is a creative response by Glasgow Bike Station to raise funding for Bike Swap projects across the city.
On Friday 30th November, up to 200 riders dressed in their finest tartans will ride from The Glasgow Bike Station HQ in Yorkhill, taking in a few stops on the way for refreshment, food and unique experiences, across the city for a ceilidh at West Brewery on Glasgow Green.
On arrival at West Brewery all riders will enjoy haggis, neeps and tatties (there is a choice between veggie and meaty) before the Tartan Ride Ceilidh Band get started!
The Tartan Ride Ceilidh Band is made up of 3 Highland musicians, all of which have deep rooted connections with the Scottish music scene – Adam Sutherland is a well established fiddle player from Errogie, near Loch Ness and has performed with bands such as the Peatbog Faeries, Croft No. Five, Salsa Celtica and is a member of the mighty Treacherous Orchestra.
On pipes and whistle we have Angus Binnie, a fine example of the quality of musicians coming out of the Highlands today. Angus plays Ceilidhs and festivals across the breadth of the country from Lochailort to his home town of Cromarty.
And lastly we have Barry Reid on guitar, from the small area of Kilmorack near Inverness. Barry was a founding member of the band Croft No. Five and is a fellow member of the Treacherous Orchestra with Adam. Both Barry and Adam are part of the new Techno/World Music band Halcyon, who have been gaining new ground with their fusion of traditional instruments with electronic beats and bass.
To finish the Tartan Ride event off in style, we will have beats and tunes from 2 DJs, Binnie and Hogg (Angus Binnie and Ian Hogg).
We’d love you to join in by getting a ticket RIGHT HERE.
