'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.

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!'
