The Old Bridge Inn is renowned for it's great live music (as well as it's food, drink and atmoshpere!) and the Scottish Backcountry Festival will be no exception.

Mariachi folk sextet, Woodenbox (formerly Woodenbox with a Fistful of Fivers) first came together in 2008 over their love of a fine sandwich, spaghetti westerns and The Beatles combined with an adoration of all things Mariachi, particularly ponchos. Over the last 4 years, the band has gone on to become one of the most exciting live acts around with sell out shows from Scotland to Texas.

So don't miss out - get along to the Scottish Backcountry festival and get your Mariachi Folk on!
