Argyll Ceilidh Trail 2

Fèis Latharna is a local organisation run by volunteers and supported by tutors with the aim to provide opportunities for young people in the Oban and Lorn area to receive tuition in a wide range of the Gaelic arts – song, dance, drama and traditional music. Since 2010 Fèis Latharna have operated a summer project where students from the classes throughout the region audition to be part of a band that tours Argyll for several weeks playing in various locations giving the youngsters a taste of life as professional musicians. This is the second year that we have hosted the Argyll Ceilidh Trail Band.
