Shooglenifty have been in Lebanon this week as part of a Scottish Cultural Festival taking place there. Interesting review from the Lebanon Daily Star here: http://bit.ly/motDfw

Reel 2011’s focus now turns to Scotland. It will be interesting indeed to see whether the Lebanese and Syrian artists taking part will receive the same reception in Scotland as the Scots artists got here.

They haven't had much publicity, that's for sure.

I took part in a festival in Beirut a few years ago, with Iain and Allan MacDonald. It was an amazing experience, given that it was shortly after their prime minister was assassinated and during a very tense political time, when the Syrians were retreating from Lebanon. Despite bombs exploding, we did venture into downtown Beirut on our last evening (had to be done). We absolutely loved our time there and were treated extremely well by our hosts and all the people we met.
