MOK Fest 25th ceilidh sold out

Campbeltown Courier - - BUSINESS -

A CA­PAC­ITY crowd filled MOK Fest’s 25th year ceilidh at Vic­to­ria hall.

Head­line acts Dal­ri­ada Con­nec­tions band, KSPB, Rose Room and Heron Val­ley had some se­ri­ous com­pe­ti­tion from a Car­radale char­ac­ter.

Neeni MacDougall has been to ev­ery ceilidh for 25 years and last Fri­day re­ceived a stand­ing ova­tion as he tried to up­stage the stars, dur­ing an in­ter­val, with two ren­di­tions on his mouth or­gan.

Glas­gow string quar­tet Rose Room brought a taste of 1930s’ Parisian jazz and gypsy swing num­bers in a lively show be­fore Heron Val­ley packed the dance floor with more tra­di­tional tunes.
