Fans of the musical phenomenon known as Peat and Diesel will need to wait for their dose of ‘Peatlemania’ in Tarbert after a planned show in September had to be rescheduled.

Stornoway sensations Innes, Uilly and Boydie – who play a mix of Scottish folk music and Celtic punk – were to perform at ‘The Big Gig In the Hall’ at Tarbert Music Festival on Friday September 18, but in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic organisers West Kintyre Promotions (WKP) took the difficult decision to reschedule the event to Saturday April 3 2021.

A WKP spokesperson said: ‘We are obviously disappointed. We tried to give the show every chance of going ahead. We are grateful to our partners and the band for agreeing to the date change. The guys are excited to play in Tarbert.

‘Tickets remain valid for the new date and we look forward to welcoming everyone for what will be a unique and intimate evening with Peat and Diesel.’
