Island impresario Donald “Pedie” MacNeill has put together a series of concerts to get the feet tapping during those long hot summer nights.

A recent visitor survey clearly showed music was a big part of a trip to Colonsay for many tourists and this year’s programme should not disappoint.

Amongst the acts is island born singer/songwriter Caitlin McNeill who is making a first appearance on Colonsay with her new band, Canach.

All the concerts start at 8.30 and admissions is £8 – £3 for concessions – on the door.

Tuesday 8th July   The Machrins McNeills

Wednesday 16th July  Ian Thompson & Marc Duff

Thursday 24th July   Corran Raa

Wednesday 30th July  Mary Anne Kennedy ‘Aiseag’ (The Ferryboat)

Wednesday 6th August  The Alastair McCulloch Trio

Tuesday 12th August  Keir Johnston

Wednesday 20th August  Canach

Tuesday 26th August  Donald MacNeill

Tickets are also still available for the Colonsay Music Festival in September.
