The Festival prides itself on a close relationship with the local community which continues the year round. The Festival has long-established links with local musical institutions including Lochaber Music School, University of the Highlands & Islands, and now Plockton Music School.
TRADITIONAL TUNES FOR TINY PEOPLE - FESTIVAL 2017!
In line with our fantastic programme for 2017, which centres around lost music, especially of traditional Scotland, we are thrilled to be joined by Live Music Now artists Ainsley Hamill and Alistair Paterson, who will be presenting a unique programme of traditional tunes for young pre-school children and toddlers. The Live Music Now artists have had specialist training in this area, and the event is sure to be a highly sensory, interactive experience for young people.

Norwegian-Scottish actor Paul Hernaes Barnes is a leading light of a generation of young Scottish dramatists. Born and raised in Glenfinnan, we are delighted to welcome him to the festival in 2016 as FYA.
This year we are delighted to present a unique and interactive experience for all the family as local historian John Dye takes us on a guided tour around the various historic sites around the south end of Loch Shiel, starting at Dalilea House, the birthplace of Alistair MacMaghister, the bard of the Gaelic Enlightenment.
