The Hebridean Dark Skies Festival closes with a special appearance by one of Scotland’s most extraordinary singer-songwriters.
Rachel Sermanni’s Dark Skies show marks ten years since her career-launching EP, Black Currents, released in February 2012. In the decade since, she has release four acclaimed albums (most recently 2019’s So It Turns) and toured all over the world. Rachel was to have performed as part of Dark Skies in 2019 (as part of the show Whatever Gets You Through The Night) but had to cancel due to illness; we are delighted to welcome her back to our festival for an unmissable headline show.
The evening will include a supporting set by singer-songwriter Andrew Eaton Lewis, who previously worked with Rachel on Whatever Gets You Through The Night and is about to release a new album for Hebridean label Wee Studio Records.
The Hebridean Dark Skies Festival is supported by Caledonian MacBrayne, Highlands and Islands Enterprise and Culture and Business Fund Scotland. We would also like to thank our event partners, Calanais Visitor Centre, Stornoway Astronomical Society, Gallan Head Community Trust, and Lews Castle College UHI , as well as Cala Hotels, Outer Hebrides Tourism, and VisitScotland.
