Ceol is a live music venture situated in the famous seaport of Campbeltown on Scotland’s historic Kintyre peninsula. Events are shared across two locations at the neighbouring Seafield and Ardshiel Hotels ... Ceol is a “must- visit” experience for genuine music lovers and a “must-play” stage for the finest musicians across the genres. Whether they are troubadours, exponents of blues, jazz, rock, folk or Americana music, Ceol is the place for them to be seen and heard in Kintyre.Many of our headliners will be well known and of international standing, others less so. However, the one thing we can guarantee is that the quality of the music will always shine through.’

 

'Our wee festival is probably the smallest and most intimate traditional music festival in Scotland, as the island Village Hall where we hold our headline events has a capacity of about 150. Many of our festival-goers are regulars: we know them by name, and they're always welcome to have a blether while booking their tickets ...' Held Late June.

 

'The Festival aims to showcase and promote the song writing and musical talent in Kintyre. It also aims to encourage a new generation of local songwriters and musicians, by means of donations to local musical groups/organisations and the presentation of an annual memorial quaiche at Campbeltown Grammar School for original folk song ...' Held Late April.

 

'An event for all the family which celebrates traditional and contemporary Scottish, Irish and Pan Celtic music. Based in Campbeltown, the event has a great mix of free outdoor events, concerts, ceilidh’s, music sessions, workshops, children’s entertainment, heritage trail walks, and parades in large venues to intimate halls. Past bands to appear at the MOK Fest are The Fratellis, The View, The Time Frequency (TTF), The Saw Doctors, Deacon Blue, Capercaillie, Idlewild, Ally Bain & Phil Cunningham, Red Hot Chilli Pipers and the Stranglers. If you fancy an adventure and good music in this is the event for you.' Held Mid August.

 

Formed in 1983: 'The past few years have seen Campbeltown Brass grow and develop into a three-tier organisation with a beginner, a junior and a senior (Contest) band. Many of the members of the Junior Band are also part of the Contest Band. Despite the average age of the contest band being so young Campbeltown Brass has always managed to compete successfully across Scotland, and the associated junior bands have consistently won their sections in the Scottish Youth Championships. Campbeltown Brass is one of the furthest travelled bands in Scotland. Every contest requires a minimum of a 300 mile round trip and frequently an overnight stay is required!'
