Hear the story behind
Beat The Drum

Hear Richie (Lead Vocals) and Ben (Keyboards & Manager) chatting about the band, it’s roots and of course Runrig on the Working Musicians Podcast with Artist Management Services’ Adam Cable.

What they’re saying…

“Respectful, appropriate but above all, absolute quality! This is exactly what a tribute band should be. Not a cheesy look-a-like, a show that’s committed to keeping the music alive. 10/10”


“They know they’re not Runrig. They’re not trying to be. What this is is a chance to celebrate Runrig’s incredible songs and experience them in a live environment again with an incredible band. Highly Recommended”


“This was a special night. We never thought we’d get to hear these songs live again. Beat The Drum are incredible musicians in their own rights but paying tribute to Runrig was never going to be an easy task. The reality is that they’ve smashed it out the park. A very fitting and respectful homage to living Scottish legends. The lads would be proud of them and delighted to hear their music living on.” – Jon Owen
