Live Music in Royal Deeside Village of Ballater

With a fast growing reputation, Deeside Inn is becoming the place to be for live music in Royal Deeside. 

  • One venue, two gigging spaces
  • From post-punk to pop to rock n’ roll to folk
  • Bar suppers served ‘til late
  • Intimate, exclusive gigs
  • Live music entertainment

Becoming a known venue for excellent live music in the region, the heart of Deeside Inn is traditional Scottish folk from contemporary artists. Although this is our traditional core, we do like to welcome broad and diverse groups. Gigs from London post-punk band  like The Jetsonics, a bit of rock from Roddy Woomble of Idlewild, and Capercaillie favourite Charlie McKennon, let us do just that!

The Mad Ferrets are a favourite with the regulars and rock royalty Ethan Johns himself, a global producer (who’s dad produced The Who), told us he’d “never played a gig like it before”, when he was with us at the Deeside!

Live music usually takes place on a Saturday night, though midweek sessions crop up occasionally so keep your eyes peeled for what’s on.
