The announcement that MOK will return in August is music to our ears this week.

Set right in the heart of the Campletown community the festival has become the region’s top cultural event since its inception in 1993.

Not only does it encourage people to visit Kintyre from all over but it showcases the very best in traditional and contemporary music our region has to offer, displaying cultural individuality through the talents of the local musicians of all ages.

This year’s Mull of Kintyre Music Festival will go ahead across three venues in Campbeltown from Aug 18 – 22 with top acts such as Tide Lines, Da Birlinn, Clare Hastings Trio, Scotia Ceilidh Band, Ross Couper and Tom Oakes, Catherine Tinney, Wee Toon Tellers and Slainte Davaar Allstars taking part.

Concerts will all be run within Scottish Government guidelines while discussions on
what we can run outdoors are ongoing.

Organisers of this highly popular event cannot be praised enough for all the hard work they do behind the scenes, especially this year when Covid restrictions are still required to be adhered to. A huge well done to all involved.

To see any kind of live event return is something to sing about.
