The return of The Howff

howff /haʊf/. A favourite meeting place or haunt, especially a pub.

Opened during the lockdown last year The Howff is Bella Caledonia’s Saturday night virtual pub gig. Each week we feature three new releases from bands and artists across Scotland and beyond. Last year we highlighted the “big names” like Texas and Mogwai, with Scottish favourites such as Stanley Odd and Colonel Mustard & The Dijon5 through to new Scottish acts’ first-time releases and debut singles.

Do you have something coming out this year? A new track, an album or EP or a re-release of an old single? Get in touch, we would love to showcase your release in The Howff.

We particularly want to hear from independent labels and diverse voices from genres and communities that are less heard.

Send us an email at [email protected] with details of what’s coming out.
