The Isle of Gigha Music Festival may be one of the smallest festivals in the country but it is certainly one of the most vibrant and welcoming. This years festival takes place on Saturday 29 June with music across the island not just on this day, but on the Friday evening.
The main event is the headline concert on the Saturday night will feature Chris Stout and Catriona McKay, the Fiona Hunter Band and Argyll based Rhuvaal. With the village hall only holding 150 people, its an ideal opportunity to enjoy world class traditional music in an intimate setting.
In 2012 the festival set the enviable and undisputed world record of 65 minutes for a non-stop Orcadian Strip the Willow at the end of concert ceilidh. With this years ceilidh being led by the youthful Rhuvaal, who knows what will happen!
As well as the evening concert there is a packed programme of music during the day including the up and coming Campbeltown based band – The Endorphins, an open mic session, singing workshop, the Loch Fyne Pipe Band and live music across the island.
So come and enjoy a weekend of live music and don’t forget to bring your instrument if you have one. We can never have enough music.
