Lewis singer/songwriter Colin Macleod will this September embark on a 14 date UK tour which will take him from Orkney to London.

The tour will include two performances in the Western isles at the Woodlands Centre, Stornoway on Thursday 13 September and at the Westford Inn, North Uist on Friday 14 September.

The tour comes of the back of Colin’s recent performance at the Hebridean Celtic Festival where he performed his debut album, Bloodlines to a packed Acoustic Tent.

Bloodlines, released in May, was produced by Ethan Jones and recorded at Peter Gabriel’s Wiltshire studio.  It is influenced by stories from Lewis as well as Colin’s personal experience of growing up on the island.

Prior to this performance at the festival, Colin was interviewed by the One Show, as part of their two-part island special, about his life as a crofter and musician.  This interview along with the rest of the island special programming can be found on BBC iPlayer.

Following on from his September tour Colin will join legends Van Morrison and Robert Plant for Blues Fest London 2018 on 26 October at the O2 Arena and then for Blues Fest Dublin 2018 at the 3 Arena on 28 October.
