The Stamping Ground is a musical featuring the songs of Scottish Celtic rock band, Runrig.  Although little known outside Scotland, Runrig were a hugely popular group with a passionate and loyal fan base from 1973 to 2018.  Although the line-up changed a little over the years, Calum and Rory Macdonald remained the constants, having written all the songs featured in this musical, some of which are sung in Gaelic, the native language of their birthplace, The Isle of Skye.
