Argyll Gathering Festival

The Argyll Gathering Festival is a brand new event on the Scottish cultural calendar.

Headliners for the new festival include Donnie Munro, Red Hot Chilli Pipers and Treacherous Orchestra

The Argyll Gathering will be a celebration of all things Scotland, from music to local food and drink, showcasing the best of arts and culture as well as drawing attention to the community that makes Scotland such a special place for creativity.

Fans of contemporary Scottish trad music take note!

Acts that have been confirmed to perform so far include Runrig's Donnie Munro, the always entertaining Red Hot Chilli Pipers and Scottish supergroup Treacherous Orchestra, who will all take on headlining duties. Bwani Junction will also be making an appearance, performing Paul Simon's Graceland, along with Elephant Sessions, Manran, Federation of the Disco Pimp, Jarlath Henderson Band, Blue Rose Code, Daimh, Fat-Suit, Pronto Mama and finally Nae Plans (Adam Sutherland and Hamish Napier).

'The one thing that I always wanted my hometown to have was a spectacular event that focussed on bringing people together to listen to great music, have a dram and really enjoy themselves as a community of people! We believe that an event such as this should enhance its home turf, and really bring something to the table. That could be a great music line up that speaks to its patrons, showcasing the gorgeous larder of Scotland, or exposing people to the rich creative culture that exists all around us.' - Festival organiser James Windebank.
