Supported by the Highland Youth Arts Hub 'Time to Shine' Fund, Sabhal Mòr Ostaig and Seall.
With funding from the Highland Youth Arts Hub, TradBeats is a festival which has traditional arts at its core but re-awakens them in a modern, upbeat context, bringing together the basic elements of voice and movement through rhythm.
