About us

Kintyre Music Club is a voluntary organisation run by local people dedicated to bringing high quality chamber music and musicians to Campbeltown. Most of our concerts are held on Friday evenings between September and March in the Lorne and Lowland Church Hall, Longrow, Campbeltown. (The Church with the very large steeple on the main street if you are visiting! The Old Hall is round the back of the steeple)

The Kintyre Music Club is one of some 70 organisations promoting classical music across Scotland supported by Enterprise Music Scotland. In our corner of Scotland, Argyll and Bute Concert Tours (ABCT) was set up as in independent organisation some years ago to co-ordinate the programmes of our six local promoters (Kintyre, Mid Argyll, Oban, Cowal, Bute & Islay) so that we are able attract first class musicians to the area by offering them a busy short tour which makes it worth their while travelling all this way – they seem to really enjoy it!

We are very fortunate as a Club to hear many wonderful musicians and to see them at much closer range than you ever could in the larger city concert halls they are usually performing in. One disappointment is that we do not seem to be able to attract younger audiences and we would strongly encourage you to come along and bring music students or interested children with you – they always enjoy it when they do come and many of the musicians are teachers themselves and make a real effort to entertain young people with their repertoire.

Last year we were able, with the support of the local Rotary Club, to facilitate workshops at the two primary schools and the Grammar School by two of our visiting ensembles. These were very well received.

Please use the links on the concert page to read the websites of each of the upcoming performers. Enjoy!
