Saturday, September 22, 2018 - 19:30 : Music : Sheelanagig - Stone Skimming Dance
Location : Easdale Island Hall
"High octane stuff…Would liven any party and keep the floor full" – fRoots <br><br>Sheelanagig for over a decade have brought their array of foot-stomping folk tunes to audiences across the globe. A quintet with a well-stocked armoury of stringed instruments – guitar, fiddle, double bass – added with the rhythmic energy of flute and drums and a bagful of joint-jumping tunes, these boys from the South-West England create a real dynamic which is inherent in both their furious dance medleys as well as their interestingly arranged original pieces. <br><br>Putting the groove into a selection of traditional and original European Folk music dating from the medieval times to present day, it’s difficult – nay, impossible – for your limbs to remain stationary when you're within earshot of them in full flight. The fact that they often play with a knowing wink shouldn't obscure their impeccable technique, and outstanding musicianship that raises the roof in every place they play. <br><br>"A completely top night out." – Mike Harding, BBC Radio 2 <br><br>"The musicianship is tight and intense" – Songlines<br><br>Web : <a href="" target="_blank"></a>

Sunday, September 23, 2018 - 00:00 : World Stone Skimming Championships
Location : Easdale Island, United Kingdom

The competition starts at 12 noon - get to the quarry side early to avoid the queues!<br><br>We now have to restrict the maximum number of entrants to 350.<br><br>This is simply due to the time taken to let everyone compete, hold the awards ceremony and then ensure people can leave the island during ferry operating hours.<p><br></p><p>Web :&nbsp;<a href="" target="_blank"></a></p>
