A PROJECT showcasing emerging Scottish music will be filming its latest online television show at the Wickerman this weekend.
Detour Scotland, formed in 2009, is the brainchild of BBC Radio1’s Ally McCrae and David Weaver and aims to promote creative talent from across the country.
It quickly snowballed as one of the top promotion outlets in Scotland’s diverse and thriving music scene, showcasing live gigs and unique events and now produces 30-minute online television shows.
With two highly-acclaimed shows in the bag already, Ally (pictured) and David are preparing their third production, half of which will be filmed in Dundrennan this weekend.
David said: “Ally is going to be at Wickerman all weekend filming for the third show while I am going to be at a festival in the Isle of Eigg in the Highlands.
“The aim of the show is to showcase talent from across Scotland through live performances, interviews and features.
“There is nothing like this in Scotland and it has always been our aim, since the start, to get something like this going.”
The production will go online on August 1 with exclusive material direct from the Wickerman.
David added: “The first two shows were set in normal gig environments so it will be great to get out into the festivals for a change.
“We will be featuring some fantastic talent such as There Will Be Fireworks, Michael Cassidy and Human Don’t Be Angry, which is Malcolm Middleton from Arab Strap’s project.”
