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
We value our content, so access to our full site is only available on subscription.

And there’s more – your subscription includes access to digital archive copies from 2006 onwards.
MOJO, the popular festival celebrating home-grown Argyll talent, has extended its deadline for acts to apply to perform.
In common with other social events, MOJO 2020 could not be held due to the coronavirus pandemic, but organisers of the Ardfern extravaganza are hopeful that 2021 will allow bands and singers from across Argyll to delight the audience once again with their original music.
Aiming to hold MOJO at Craignish Village Hall on May 15, the deadline for demo submissions has been extended to March 7 to allow as many acts as possible to come forward.
The basic critera are:
- Your music must be original – no covers
- You can perform a 30-40 minute set of your own music
- You are from, or have strong connections with, Argyll
- You or your band are aged 16 and over
- To apply, musicians are asked to send a short description of their music accompanied with a demo – video, EP, Soundcloud, Youtube, are all accepted – to the MOJO Argyll Facebook page.
- Previous MOJO artists can re-apply, provided it is with new material.
