At the start of the pandemic in March we took the decision to make online access to our news free of charge by taking down our paywall. At a time where accurate information about Covid-19 was vital to our community, this was the right decision – even though it meant a drop in our income. In order to help safeguard the future of our journalism, the time has now come to reinstate our paywall, However, rest assured that access to all Covid related news will still remain free. To access all other news will require a subscription, as it did pre-pandemic The good news is that for the whole of December we will be running a special discounted offer to get 3 months access for the price of one month. Thanks you for supporting us during this incredibly challenging time

The pandemic has not stopped the latest creative sessions from Fèis an Tairbeirt.

The traditional music charity based in Tarbert has announced that booking is open for a series of online events on weekend of November 13-15.

The first free tickets to be released were for Fèis Bheag sessions for children age three to six.

There will be sessions to enjoy on art, photography, instrumental music, Gaelic song and much more.

Fèis an Tairbeirt was established in 2016 by a group of volunteers keen to ensure that people of all ages in Mid Argyll and Kintyre are offered the chance to learn to play an instrument and experience the joy of playing music together with others.

The Fèis (festival) offers opportunity for individuals to come together and develop skills in the Gaelic arts – song, dance, drama, and traditional music on a wide range of instruments, inspired by tuition from some of Scotland’s leading musicians and tutors.

Find our more about the November events on the Fèis an Tairbeirt website.
