The Isle of Coll lies Mid summer there can be almost no darkness, however, in winter, the Isle of Coll has considerably longer dark hours making sky viewing even more exciting. In the depths of winter daylight hours are short, approximately hrs to hrs. The island is well know for its sandy beaches, 23 in all, large sand dunes and a rather dull but noisy little bird called the corncrake crex crex.

In the winter there are just five ferries per week. Between the opening ceilidh and the climax with Skerryvore, lovers of the west coast sound were well served with sets from Gunna Sound , Skipinnish and Trail West. With Gordon retired from his full-time teaching post, Joyce MacInnes, the current teacher, runs the High School Music Club and oversees the vital tasks that ensure success for pupils in grade exams and traditional music competitions.

Upcoming Events

It was a privilege to share, for just a few days, in the spirit that makes music, be it traditional or contemporary, such a source of enjoyment and pride for the Tiree community. Back at the Festival stages and there was plenty of music from other parts of Scotland to get excited about. The Scott Wood Trio have only been gigging together for a year and with a line up of pipes and whistles Scott , fiddle Mhairi Mackinnon and guitar Ron Jappy they represent a more pared down approach compared with the ceilidh bands.

Nevertheless, they put on a performance that filled the main stage with a sound that was impressively varied, slow and lyrical with whistle or fiddle to the fore, or full on piping pieces. They have a 4 track EP currently available, well worth checking out.

Operating three stages meant you could interleave hunting out new talent with catching the stunning sets produced by more established bands. Long time favourites of mine, Breabach , gave one of their classic festival performances, great tunes with arrangements that are beguilingly deceptive, straightforward solos seamlessly transforming into energetic ensemble pieces. The set included tracks that will appear on the CD they are about to record with Kris Drever as producer.

Talking with the band, they were equally excited about what their future holds. Ah, well, next time.

Tiree Music Festival (Live Review)

In all honesty, this could be applied to a fair number of the bands over the weekend. One notable exception was Lori McTear image at end of article , just 19 and writing some acutely observed songs performed solo with acoustic guitar and, the following day, as a trio with keyboards and electric guitar.

Lead singer, Mike Horsburgh, was more shocked than most having only joined the band in February. But he recovered well enough to deliver great vocals, mainly of tracks from their just released 6 track CD, Working Man.

Bass guitarist Graham Brown and drummer David Lindsay have, between them, composed all but one of the tracks but other band members are waiting in the wings to add their own compositions. A talented bunch, we can expect to hear a lot more of them in future.

About Isle of Coll, a dark Sky island

In amongst the bands from far and wide within Scotland were Coast , hailing from near my own home base in Hampshire. Their inclusion on the Tiree bill is partly explained by two band members, Paul Eastham and his brother Chris Barnes, having spent formative years on the Outer Isles. Saturday night headliners Capercaillie were eagerly awaited by a largely young audience that may not have had many previous opportunities to see them.
