The lively celebration of traditional music returns to Rouken Glen Park from Saturday June 8 to Sunday, June 9 with headline acts including Elephant Sessions, Julie Fowlis, Mànran.

Niall Munro, son of former Runrig frontman Donnie Munro, said: “We cater for three music festivals, The Reeling, Belladrum, and Skye Live, and I love being a part of them.

“It’s high energy and such a good buzz.

“Reputably, with holidays people expect to be ripped off for food, and are often happy to settle for less and pay more.

“I’m proud to be part of a festival like no other, and we provide great food and drink for the attendees.

“Ultimately, it’s the music and the amazing talent that creates that, but I hope we add something by providing good quality coffee.”

No stranger to festivals outside of his work with Birch, Munro is also one of the co-directors of Skye Live alongside Michael Pellegrotti.

He continued: “I have always been involved in music and have grown to appreciate the joy of traditional music.

“Growing up, my dad was at Runrig and I was DJing and promoting nights, which I always kept up.

“I started Skye Live in 2015, and at school, music was always at the forefront of my mind career-wise.

“Food and drink came to me later when I was working with my brother in his restaurant in Port-Rwy.”

With Birch now successfully operating two locations in Port-Roy and Inverness and preparing to attend The Reeling festival in the coming months, Munro has spoken of a desire to expand his specialty coffee business in the future.

“Who knows what will happen in the future – things can change and happen quickly, and opportunities will come,” he said.

“We get a lot of Glasgow visitors to our cafe, often young folk traveling around Skye.

“We don’t have any plans at the moment to build a store in the central belt, but it’s definitely something I’d like to look at.”
