Music in the Castle

Welcome to Music in the Castle

Music in the Castle is a very special format of folk festival! These pages were set up to let more people get an impression of what awaits them each Easter in beautiful Cowal and to build a virtual meeting point for all the people who became friends during these weekends.

There are people that have visited each Music in the Castle since 2000. The audience comes from as far as Israel, the USA, Germany and England.

Each weekend sees a mix of music workshops, outdoor events (hill walking, abseiling, canoeing, kayaking,...), long evening sessions, a ceilidh dance and a concert:
