This year’s Mull of Kintyre Music Festival (MOKFest) ceilidh night will feature three rousing bands.

The Scotia Ceilidh Band, long-time festival favourites Wee Toon Tellers and the Dalriada Connections Band are all booked to perform at the Friday August 20 event in the Victoria Hall.

The Wee Toon Tellers need no introduction to Campbeltown audiences having performed at the event since it began in 1993.

The Tellers headlined Survivors Night for many years and the first Friday night concert in the Victoria Hall 1994.

The band, who headlined last year’s virtual Glen Scotia West Coast Rocks Concert, have promised a set full of songs and tunes from their huge repertoire which can be heard on their two CDs Jarred and Feathered and 10 Years Matured.

The Scotia Ceilidh Band is led by BBC Young Traditional Musician of the Year finalist Grant McFarlane.

With their roots in traditional Scottish music, the band showcase an exceptional level of musicianship. They have performed at thousands of events across the UK and internationally since 2002.

The concert starts with the Dalriada Connections Band whose line-up includes musicians who will perform across the festival, tutors from the festival workshops and Campbeltown Grammar School students.

Festival organisers hope audience members will get a chance to get up for a dance if safety guidelines allow and they have promised a great night for family and friends to finally get together for a great night of music, songs and craic.

Christine Macintyre will be MC for the evening.

Tickets for this hugely popular family event cost £18, with children up to 12 years £9.

They are on sale locally from AP Taylors on Campbeltown’s Main Street and online at www.ticketweb.co.uk
