THE FIRST Shetland Reel Music Festival, to be held in Unst this weekend, will be broadcast live in high definition around the world by Promote Shetland.
A seven-strong production team will ensure all stage performances can be seen on the new 60 North TV platform at http://60n.tv
“This will be our first multi-camera production delivering HD streaming via satellite,” said Andy Steven, Promote Shetland’s head of brand strategy and innovation.
“We’ll be broadcasting all the stage performances in their entirety and we’ll use the time between acts to showcase the many reasons to visit Unst.”
The festival at the Saxa Vord Resort is being curated by US musician Jim Salestrom, guitarist in Dolly Parton’s band, and will feature his friend Livingston Taylor, his son James and West Coast band Marley’s Ghost.
More than 30 local acts will also be on stage in the Petrofac-sponsored festival which runs from Friday until Sunday.
They include the likes of the Sheila Henderson Band, The Dirty Lemons, Lisa Ward, Vair and Trookers.
The full line-up can be seen on the festival website www.shetlandreelmusic.com
