Glass Tiger to Headline the Fergus Scottish Festival

The Fergus Scottish Festival and Highland Games is ecstatic to announce that Glass Tiger will be the music headliner at the Tattoo’d in Tradition ceremony this year! They will be performing on the Friday night, August 11th following the Tattoo and are included as part of the purchase of a Friday night ticket or weekend pass.

“We are truly thrilled to have Glass Tiger at the Festival this year” noted Festival Executive Director Elizabeth Bender.  “It is especially meaningful, as Glass Tiger was going to be part of our 2020 Festival and 75th Anniversary celebrations which were unfortunately cancelled due to the pandemic. It is fabulous that we are able to welcome them this year.” 

“It will be great to finally have Glass Tiger up on stage” added Festival President Matthew Bennett-Monty.  “The Festival team has put together an amazing lineup of entertainment this year that compliments all our other programming including the World Heavy Event competition and Outlander stars. This is a Festival year not to be missed,” Bennett-Monty stated. In addition to Glass Tiger, the Festival will also welcome a lineup that is a wonderful combination of fan favourites and new music and entertainment including Albannach, Waking Finnegan, Glengarry Bhoys, The Snake Charmer, Elora Festival Singers, The Rogersons, Gillebride MacMillan, David Leask, Bob Maclean, and Chambless & Muse.

Richard Rankin

The Fergus Scottish Festival and Highland Games is also thrilled to announce the Featured Guest for 2023 will be Richard Rankin. Known as Roger MacKenzie on the hit TV series Outlander based on the best-selling books by Diana Gabaldon. Rankin is the third Outlander star the Festival has welcomed and will be on the grounds Friday, Saturday and Sunday, August 11 – 13, 2023.

The Festival team has curated an awesome combination of unique VIP experiences, including brunch, autograph/photo opportunities, whisky tastings, and free panel discussions.  There will be multiple opportunities to meet Rankin up close, and in addition to scheduled featured events, he will also be participating in activities through the Festival grounds.
