Congratulations to pals and performers Raymond Gosling and Niall Gemmill who were behind Carradale’s first-ever music festival last weekend.
The lads put in plenty of hard slog over a number of months to get the two-day event up and running.
Considering it stemmed from a ceilidh the boys – who are both founding members of trad folk band Rhuvaal – organised last year, the debut festival was polished, professional and proved to be popular.
Their hardwork and efforts paid off and now the festival is set to become an annual event.
It was also great to see their motivation inspired other young locals to get involved too – they can all share the pride.
To get big names like Trail West and Heron Valley for the first festival and to draw in such a big crowd was pretty impressive.
It has certainly put stunning Carradale on Argyll’s festival map and if this year’s event is anything to go by, word will get round and it can only get bigger and better.
