Ron and Julie Fraser and the team from our Under Canvas Stage Sponsor, Fraser Elite, joined us in the tent for a foot-stomping - if slightly drookit! - Final Hoolie on Saturday 26 August as we celebrated the last evening of our summer music festival.
Sharing a love of music, Ron and Julie have been enthusiastic backers of Under Canvas from the start. With their help, our Under Canvas stage welcomed 186 musicians over 78 brilliant live performances over two packed months.
Ron Fraser told us:
It’s been an absolute blast! We have loved being part of making Under Canvas happen. It’s been fantastic seeing the amazing Scottish musical talent performing on ‘our’ stage. Our whole team have been regulars in the tent and tonight Duo Chaimbeul and Valtos were outstanding.
Susannah Armitage, Eden Court’s Senior Producer said:
Under Canvas has become a key event in the Scottish trad music calendar and one of the biggest celebrations of traditional music in Scotland but it simply wouldn’t be possible without the incredible support of our funders and sponsors. A huge thank you to Ron and Julie and all the team at Fraser Elite for all their commitment helping make it possible.
Thank you to everyone who joined us for great music over the summer, whether by buying a ticket, a snack or a beer you made Under Canvas.
