Get set to C.R.Y Out for a Ceilidh as the annual music fundraising event is ready to get toes tapping and feet dancing next month.

Established in 2013, C.R.Y Out for a Ceilidh raises money for The Andrew Macleod Memorial Fund and Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY).

Lewis man Andrew was just 21 years old when he died suddenly aboard a ship whilst serving as an Engineering Cadet with the Merchant Navy in October 2011.

Every week in the UK at least 12 young people die of undiagnosed heart conditions – and in response CRY promotes and develops heart screening programmes and funds medical research.

The Andrew Macleod Memorial Fund was set up by his family to help CRY's mission of reducing the frequency of young sudden cardiac death by supporting the charity's screening programme and allow young people within the local community the opportunity to be screened.

And raising the all important funds, the popular Ceilidh weekend is back for 2017, taking place at the Caladh Inn on Friday, April 14th and Saturday, April 15th.

Beginning at 7.30pm, the Friday Ceilidh sees Ness Melodean Band welcome and warm up the crowds, before The 4Macs take to the stage, followed by Trail West rounding off the evening's entertainment.

And on Saturday, the vocal delights of Lochs Gaelic Choir can be heard, along with Kristine Kennedy, Eleanor Nicolson, and brought to finale by Norrie 'Tago' MacIver and Friends.

Tickets for the Friday night ceilidh are priced £15 adults/£8 children; and for the Saturday night ceilidh, £12 adults/£5 children. But why not make a weekend of it and book both nights for £25 adult/£10 child!

Tickets are on sale now at the Caladh Inn, James Street, Stornoway, or online at
