The Heavy Metal Buffet podcast began in the summer of 2012.
From its inception five years ago the podcast grew into an online video channel and annual rock festival. Though, this weekend (25th-28th August) will be the last ever Buffet rock festival.
Founder and host Dirk Robertson tells host (and his sister) Marjolein Robertson, all about his background and how much he has enjoyed promoting music in the isles.
Listen on for a potted history of Heavy Metal Buffet.
When the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo's Brigadier David Allfrey first visited Shetland he discovered the heart of Shetland's musical heritage – the fiddle.
When he requested a troupe of Shetland fiddlers to perform at the 2014 tattoo Margaret Robertson formed, along with others, Hjaltibonhoga.
Since then Hjaltibonhoga have been invited back time and time again – they are now one of three pillars of the REMT.
Hear Margaret's story and insights into Hjaltibonhoga's experiences at the military tattoo.
Joe Christie, a Shetland student in Edinburgh, is performing in the musical Company at this year's Edinburgh Fringe. Join host Marjolein and Joe as they discuss this year's production as well as performances he has taken part in a previous Fringe as well as at home in the Shetland Youth Theatre.
