Saturday, July 21, 2018 - 19:30 : Music : Millar & Spencer - Jazz in the Village
Location : Easdale Island Hall
Ian and Dominic have been performing together for a number of years playing melodic improvisations on jazz standards and original compositions. Their style of jazz concentrates on developing melodic ideas within the framework of the melody of a tune, whilst maintaining the concept and groove behind it. The result is a very accessible melodic style which allows them to explore, improvise and develop ideas without losing the essence of each piece of music, and to interact together in as creative a way as possible.

Saturday, August 25, 2018 - 19:30 : Comedy : Jim Smith
Fresh from his 2018 run at the Edinburgh Festival with his show Jim Smith - Back to the Teuchter! Jim, who also played the farmer in BBC Scotland’s Scot Squad, uses a range of characters and regional accents to address a wide range of hot topics such as internet dating for farmers, village nightlife and how to pimp your Land Rover. Over 18's only due to possible strong language. Web : Organizer Seil What's On <>
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 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. 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. "A completely top night out." – Mike Harding, BBC Radio 2 "The musicianship is tight and intense" – Songlines Web : Organizer Seil What's On <>
