On Thursday 16th September we have another return visit, from singer-songwriter Kim Edgar, this time in the company of her band Cara. Based in Germany, Cara specialise in Irish music. Their unique mix of songs and tunes, their charismatic stage presence and dry-witted humour unites hard-core trad. fans with acoustic-pop listeners.
Uplifting, energising and expressive, with lead vocalists Gudrun Walther (Germany) and Kim Edgar (Scotland) alongside piano, fiddle, flute, guitar, dobro, bodhrán, uilleann pipes and accordion, CARA have been described by BBC Radio Scotland’s Bruce MacGregor as “a whole festival wrapped up in one band”.
This event will be in the High School hall, also at 7:30. Tickets are £10 and £6, and will be available on the door or in advance from 01599 544706 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are delighted to announce the return to Plockton of our old friends The Alistair McCulloch Trio. Alistair McCulloch hails from Ayr and is one of the country's best known fiddle performers, teachers and composers. The Trio also features Aaron Jones of Old Blind Dogs, and former Capercaillie whistle wizard Marc Duff.
The Trio’s latest album was released in July 2018, and features a mix of traditional and newly composed tunes as well as three songs featuring Aaron on vocals.
The Alistair McCulloch Trio will appear at Plockton Village Hall on Thursday 6th September at 7:30 p.m., and will be supported by students of Sgoil Chiùil Na Gàidhealtachd. Tickets are £8 and £6 on the door. The group will also give a workshop to the Music School students in the afternoon.

Plockton High School, including Sgoil Chiuil na Gaidhealtachd and the Pupil Residence, was inspected by HMIe in November 2014 and the report was published in February 2015. The overall report was very favourable, and the Music School and Residence were particularly commended.
The report can be viewed by clicking here, and the accompanying Evidence Document here. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our students, tutors, staff and parents for the continuing support that makes such an outcome achievable, and in particular to express our gratitude for the support we receive from our colleagues in Plockton High School and the Pupil Residence.
