The Five Day Festival of Carrbridge Live 2007
If you are planning a trip to the Scottish Highlands soon and would like to try something different, the Carrbridge Live Festival is not a bad place to start. An unusual mixture of nature, music, sport and festivity, the Carrbirdge Live Festival is a not-to-be-missed event.
Each year hundreds of people gather together at the small town of Carrbridge in the Scottish Highlands to participate in the Carrbridge Live Festival. The event kicks off with a colorful parade complete with massive floats and a lively collection of musical instruments and as many as 80 different performers took part in last year’s procession. This parade marks the start of Carrbridge Live and is followed by five excellent days of interesting festivities. For a start, there is the music played at the festival where anything from contemporary music to jazz is enjoyed by a variety of fans. Most of the music is played live and the musicians freely interact with their fans. For those who prefer something a little more lively, there is a great golf competition, a variety of guided walks to enjoy in the quiet of the afternoon or a cycle tour of historical attractions in and around Carrbridge if you prefer. The shinty tournament is always a hit as are the dozens of art workshops, stalls and live outdoor stage performances.
If you’re still not quite sure that Carrbridge is for you, the best thing to do is get your hands on a program and find out what sort of fringe events are planned for this year’s festival. There are so many different and interesting shows and performances being staged on the fringe that you are sure to find a number of things that catch your attention.
This year’s Carrbridge Live 2007 festival has been planned for the 19th to the 23rd of September. It may be a little early for festival programs to be finalized, but you can be sure that when they are, you will find plenty of great activities to enjoy at the annual Carrbridge Live festival. So take the initiative to support this excellent community initiative and have some fun while exploring the majestic Scottish Highlands!
