Live music for Beer & Berries this year is supplied by Sacred Paws! The band are set to fill atmosphere at the event with their distinctive brand of sunny, infectious and not-too-serious pop melodies with a live performance in the open air, set in the beautiful grounds of Hospitalfield fr the event on Saturday 21 August 2021.
Beer & Berries is a perfect opportunity to celebrate the rich food and drink culture we are so fortunate to have across Angus and Tayside. It’s the height of summer and Angus is bursting with fruit and full of grain. Visitors to Beer & Berries are invited to buy excellent quality food & drink from stallholders, and to meet the producers, growers and local suppliers of the best beer and berries in Scotland. The festival atmosphere encourages people to come along and stay for the day, catch a fascinating talk, participate in a workshop and enjoy great live music all within the gardens and grounds of Hospitalfield House.
Sacred Paws formed in 2014 when guitarist and vocalist Rachel Aggs (also a member of Shopping and Trash Kit) and drummer Eilidh Rodgers’ former band Golden Grrrls disbanded. Sacred Paws’ debut album Strike A Match is a collection of ten complex yet instantly infectious songs, described by Pitchfork as “… tightly-wound art punk [that] unspools their anxiety and turns it into something worth celebrating”. The record was awarded the 2017 Scottish Album of the Year Award. Their second album, Run Around The Sun is out now
