Fara (music) Wed 8th Dec, 7.30pm

Wednesday, December 8, 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Fara is four musicians at the forefront of today’s Scottish folk scene. Their fiery Orkney sound has won them acclaim, including a nomination for Folk Band of the Year at the 2019 Scots Trad Music awards.  Recently joined by Assynt pianist Rory Matheson, the band’s sound is as exciting as ever. This December they return to Findhorn to present a unique night of Christmas cheer. A medley of Christmas music, and some original song and tunes with a Christmas twist will provide you with lots to celebrate this coming festival season.

A Fistful of Spookies (music) Fri 10th Dec, 8pm

Friday, December 10, 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

The Spookies are a choral singing sensation and they make a welcome return to the Universal Hall with this, their smaller line up. Their singing features the sensational stylings of Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen, The Beach Boys, and thousand year old Georgian songs, guaranteed to woo, charm, cheer & delight. Like a tide-mark in the enamel bath of song, this rambling, rambunctious collection of UK Spooks keep alive the flame of Spookiness in Britain by reprising classics from the Spooky canon of testosterone-fuelled tunes and tomfoolery. Magnificent fun! A cappella but not as we know it.

The evening will be opened by a short set from the popular Forres Big Choir. Led by Bill Henderson, this is our local mixed community choir established back in 2004.

Elephant Sessions (music) Thu 16th Dec, 7.30pm

Thursday, December 16, 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

This show has been rescheduled from 2020

Hailing from the Highlands of Scotland, Elephant Sessions exploded onto the indie folk scene to unparalleled effect with their last album “All We Have Is Now.” The band have since gone on to be finalists as Best Group at the BBC Radio 2 awards and are already winners of the 2018 Scots Trad Live Act of the Year. A truly great band to see live in an intimate venue like the Universal Hall.
