This year, our Trad Concert returns to the Heritage Centre for an evening of traditional songs and instrumentals.
When the lights are dimmed, and melodic medleys fill out every nook and cranny of this fantastic venue, prepare to be captivated and thrown back to more “traditional” times.
Christine MacIntyre will be the MC for the evening.
Winner of the MG Alba Scots Trad Music Award’s Scots Singer of the Year title in 2015, Fiona first came to the wider folk music audience’s attention when she joined Scot’s song champions Malinky in 2005.
Further acclaim came when Fiona sang with the large-scale Grit Orchestra, which celebrated the music of techno-folk musician Martyn Bennett. Joining Fiona will be Mike Vass on fiddle and Tom Gibbs on piano.
The Argyll Ceilidh Trail is six young, up-and-coming musicians showcasing their music across Argyll. The musicians will be on the road for four weeks, visiting Inveraray, Arran, Mull, Tiree and Oban, and we are delighted to have them perform at this year’s MOK Fest.
The instrumental arrangement of the band includes piano, fiddle, accordion, pipes, whistle and Gaelic song.
