WEA Women in the Highlands Choir Concert with The Bevvy Sisters and Dorec-a-belle£14
Come and hear the WEA Women in the Highlands CHOIR along with … The Bevvy Sisters, Dorec-a-belle & Kaitlin Ross
This concert has been created in celebration of the 100th anniversary of some women getting the vote. It has been partly funded by the Scottish Centenary fund.
THE BEVVY SISTERS
The Bevvy Sisters simultaneously channel the heritage of such classic sister-acts such as the the Pointers and the Boswells, while their own diverse backgrounds and collective songwriting skills reinvent the female trio formula. Whilst nodding to their influences they put original songs, great singing and attitude at the forefront of what they do.

In addition to many local gigs and a mini-tour of North Highland village halls, Dorec-a-belle returned to Eden Court Theatre and Belladrum Festival this year, and have been invited back to perform at Edinburgh’s Fringe Festival in the Merchants Hall on August 2018.
