New Music Sessions: Felix Saunders

Wed 6 Oct

Lewis singer/songwriter Felix Sanders kicks off the return of An Lanntair’s monthly New Music Sessions on Wednesday 6 October, supported by upcoming band Delusion.

Playing the kind of music that is usually heard in smoky back rooms as the sun comes up, Felix’s debut solo single This Old Town gained national radio play, including on BBC Introducing’s Rapal Show.

This year, he released debut EP I Guess This Is Progress which received fantastic reviews and saw Felix catch the attention of company Reaction Management, feature in a Herald Scotland story about the islands’ music scene, and record a session with BBC Radio Nan Gaidheal.

Felix will be supported by the upcoming young band Delusion, formed by music mates from The Nicolson Institute, who recently appeared at the 2021 Stramash Festival.

Continuing to spotlight the islands’ talent, An Lanntair’s New Music Sessions – which are FREE to attend – will take place on the first Wednesday of each month, providing a space where local artists can play original material without feeling the pressure to play all the usual cover versions.

If you are an established, or brand new, performer or band and would like to get involved, please email Mike Adkins at
