The Runrig Experience | Beat the Drum

26th November 2023

Every effort has been made to verify the accuracy of the event information but we recommend contacting the event organisers before attending.

Edinburgh singer/guitarist Richie Muir (based in Nottingham) found himself with a lack of work during the pandemic in 2020. His love for Scottish Celtic rock band, Runrig lead him to create a Facebook page dedicated to acoustic Runrig covers. He soon joined forces with band manager Ben Marshall to create a live tribute show celebrating the music of Runrig. Joining Muir as part of the Beat The Drum line up were bassist Duncan MacDonald, and his London-based Glaswegian son Scott on drums, along with Jason Laing (from the Isle of Lewis) on guitar. The addition of keys saw the band behind frontman Richie Muir get down to rehearsals. Although the role of percussionist had and remains yet to be filled permanently, a number of temporary percussionists join the band for the live shows and represent the essential sonic contribution made by Runrig’s percussionist Calum MacDonald.
