Musician Nathan Evans treats Edinburgh tram passengers to impromptu gig ahead of slot at Royal Highland Hoolie

Airdrie musician Nathan Evans treated passengers on an Edinburgh tram to a very special journey as he performed an impromptu gig.

The Wellerman hit-maker is a special guest at the Royal Highland Hoolie later this week and as a warm-up he had everyone’s toes tapping as they travelled from Princes Street to Ingliston - the home of the Royal Highland Show.

The line-up for this year’s Royal Highland Hoolie will see some of Scotland and Ireland’s liveliest musicians take to the stage, with eight folk and country acts set to entertain crowds across two nights this weekend.

Sharing a stage with former postman Nathan on Friday, June 21, will be headline act Tide Lines, who have just released their latest single, Homeward Bound, and six-piece band Trail West, fresh off a European tour.

Singer-songwriter Nathan said: "I’m so looking forward to playing at the Royal Highland Hoolie this weekend.

"It was brilliant fun to give a warm up gig on the tram which will be taking people to and from the Hoolie.

"It promises to be a great event.“

Welcoming families, this year the Royal Highland Hoolie will have a special family zone for those with children aged between five and 12.

With picnic tables and space for little ones to play, families can enjoy the music safely and away from the crowds.

Various ticket types are available, including two combined Royal Highland Show and Royal Highland Hoolie tickets which allow for people to enjoy both events at a discounted rate with a limited number of Hoolie only tickets.

Ticket prices start at £35 and are available to buy from the Royal Highland Show website.
