Finger 11 to headline Kincardine Scottish Festival

Festival will run July 6-8


By Barb McKay


Canadian alternative rock band Finger 11 has signed on to perform at the Kincardine Scottish Festival and Highland Games.


The Juno-award winning band has found success in the U.S. as well as Canada with hit songs One Thing and Paralyzer. Finger 11 will be the headline act for the Scottish Festival’s Saturday night concert.


“It’s a great success to have them,” said Scottish Festival President Tony Doherty. “We’re really looking forward to having them.”


While the festival primarily pays homage to Kincardine’s Scottish heritage, the committee strives to offer different genres of music to appeal to all of its attendees. Doherty said the rest of the weekend’s musical line-up is exciting with the returning of Albannach, Irish pop/Celtic rock band Screaming Orphans and fiddle champion Shane Cook. There are also a couple of newcomers, including a folk group from Toronto, Great Lake Swimmers, and Indigenous artists. Tickets are now available through TicketScene.


Friday evening, July 6, will be a Community Night this year with performances by Andrew Parkhouse, Dark Angel and Crazy Maker and others.


Along with signing its headliner, the Scottish Festival received another piece of good news last week – it has been selected for a Celebrate Ontario 2018 provincial grant in the amount $53,750. Doherty said the funds will go towards a digital screen to use in Victoria Park.


“We are very pleased to get that grant,” Doherty said. “I’d like to thank our event manager Linda Johnson for all her hard work. Without her work we wouldn’t have gotten that grant.”


Doherty said plans for the Scottish Festival are coming along well and entries are coming in for the highland dancing competitions and the like. The committee will also know well in advance this year which pipe bands will be attending the festival.


The Kincardine Scottish Festival has also unveiled a new logo. Doherty said the new logo is an enhanced version of the original logo and is the work of PRG and the festival’s marketing team.


“It’s a breath of fresh air,” he said. “We’re very excited about our new logo. We have a full committee working with us this year – a very talented, focused team.”
