Celebrating Highland Music: 6-14 September 2013
Blas Festival has established itself as the Highlands' premier Gaelic and traditional music festival. The festival was established by The Highland Council after a visit to Cape Breton's Celtic Colours festival.
Blas takes place in venues across the Highlands and includes an eclectic line-up of local, national and international artistes. In addition to the main concerts, there is a comprehensive Education Programme taking place in Highland schools during the festival.
